Ayelet Waldman

Love her or hate her- this is worth listening to as Mother's Day approaches.


  1. I didn't read enough or do enough research to do her point-of-view justice, but even if she truly loved her husband more than her children, why the hell would she say it in a public venue? Was she trying to mind-fuck her children into therapy for decades to come? There's no excuse or defense for that, as far as I'm concerned.

  2. I dunno. I can see her side. I mean. If I was a mother and had not so nice feelings towards my kids I would want to know that I'm not alone in those feelings.
    i guess i can't really judge since I'm not a mom. I have a dog though. does that count? :)

  3. Shouldn't you go to therapy about that, group therapy perhaps, and discuss it with like minded individuals? Telling the whole world, your children included, that you like them less than your husband, is a dick move. I don't tell anybody that I love that I love them less than anybody else, even though I probably do. And I don't have to be a mom to know that that's just sort of weird and selfish.
