Just Like Kourtney K.

I know that there are many parents out there who think reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian’s mommy blog (it’s actually a vlog) is one big joke.

But, can I tell you a secret?

I’m not one of those parents.

When I learned that my good “friend” Kourt (yeah, we’re doing nicknames at this point in our relationship) had a blog, I was ecstatic. I was ecstatic, not because I thought I could learn anything worthwhile from her blog. Nope. Not at all.

I was ecstatic because the Kourt I’ve come to “know” over these past two years as a mom seems a lot like me as a mom. Kind of.

What?

You don’t believe me? Really?

Okay, okay. I figured you wouldn’t, most don’t, so I created this trusty diagram to show just show similar Kourt and I really are.

Okay, okay, now that I write that out I see that we may not have as much in common as I once assumed we did. But, I like Kourtney Kardashian as a mom. I like that she “seems” like a good mom who makes mistakes and is really into her kids. I like that she feeds her toddler kale chips and that he doesn’t eat them.

Sure she’s a millionaire and that changes some things between us, but otherwise, otherwise, we are practically mommy twins (at least in my head).

What do you think about Kourtney Kardashian’s mommy blog/vlog? Do you think she has something worthwhile to say as a parent? Have you dared to watch?

This is hilarious! Do I dare watch her vlog? Heck no! But, I do like her for some of the things that she does as a mom.

I actually love it too and believe we’re mommy twins despite the fact that we are. So. Not. Makes no difference to me, she’s still my bestie 😉

I did not even know such a thing existed! I must go watch it now! And I totally understand your theory about mommy twins. I have some in real life and I totally feel like I’m on the same page with them!
