Can we be honest for a second? It’s HARD work to be a mom. And in a world filled with mom wars, shaming and bashing, it can be even harder.
We all work relentlessly to be a good mom. But when someone disagrees because of your lifestyle or parenting choices, it can really, REALLY hurt. It doesn’t matter if you use cloth diapers or disposables, breast- or bottle-feed, co-sleep, homeschool, eat only organic, work full time or stay home. You are a good mom.
Everyone is different, and those differences are exactly what make your unique journey through motherhood so special. Rather than looking down on those who aren’t parenting the same exact way as you, embrace it. Who knows… reaching out and rallying behind someone who has slightly different view may be an opportunity to learn, grow, and make a friend.
It truly is hard work to be a mom. However, with the support of a growing community of moms doing their best — just like you — we can make things easier for each other. We are here to uplift, encourage, and accept one another — TOGETHER. So let’s do exactly that.
This Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating every good mom. Tell us about a time when you saw someone being a good mom. Be sure to share what you admired most or why this moment stuck with you.
