Octopus Mom

Life as a mom who has her hands full

Octo Mom NOT to be confused with Octopus Mom

When news first broke of the Octuplets’ birth in California, I didn’t think much of it. Like most Americans, I am disgusted by the fact that any doctor would implant more than 2 embryos in a female uterus. Any more than that is simply unethical. As a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit RN, I have seem the problems quads and even sextuplets face as they struggle to breathe and eat on their own. Chronic disablities are a real consideration and can bring a lifetime of pain and suffering.

Now she is labeled as Octo Mom and we have a situation. I am Octopus Mom, not Octo Mom and the two are vastly different.

An Octopus Mom is a mother with 2-4 small children at home, juggling life and work at the same time. We are confident, active and the ultimate multitaskers.

Please do not confuse the two!!

    Good stuff, I “Stumbled” you. My DIGG account got messed up but I like Stumbling better anyway.
