I think the “mommy war” is a battle that rages INSIDE each parent – that internal battle between guilt and sanity – between “perfection” and reality. Between what family life is supposed look like (calm and pretty and Pinterest!) and what family life actually looks like (chaos and messy and Survivor!). Those of us who can’t handle that tension take the war from inside to outside – and start to judge and project and lash out at others. We defend our circumstances by snarking about people in different circumstances.
