Honey Boo Boo’s mom is married….how in the world am I single?

One of the most popular tweets and meme’s I have seen the past few months has been similar to the title of my blog post “honey boo boo’s mom June has a boyfriend and your single ….just let that sink in for a minute.” For those people unfamiliar with the show June is an overweight foul mouthed woman who teaches viewers about the south and indulges us in her passions including extreme couponing and entering Alana aka Honey Boo Boo in glitz pageants. I personally find the nuggets of wisdom and comedy that June dispenses to be a breath of fresh air in a world normally consumed with falseness and outer beauty. However there are many folks who have taken offense to the lifestyle this show portrays. For me it all boils down to being able to laugh a little bit at ourselves. June’s character is an exaggerated version of what actually may lay deep inside of many of us. Truth be told we are a little rough around the edges most of us just don’t have the opportunity to put it out there on a grand scale like June. I admire her honesty and vulnerability to allow the public to see all sides of her. Good, bad and no pun intended….ugly. Most people who are overweight or not up to society’s beauty norm may shy away from a tv camera much less the public eye. June embraces her public image and even takes the chance to laugh at herself when it’s presented. She is an honest image of what all American moms including myself are, flawed in small ways but doing the best she can to raise her girls the best way she knows how. So while many may not agree with Junes brand of parenting I believe that we can all agree that her home seems lively, fun and filled with love. And at the end of the day that a few important things that any parent would love to surround their children with. So the next time you question why Honey Boo Boo’s mom has a man and your single, take a few cues from June’s play book and try some honesty combined with a touch of humor and see where it may get you!
