Happy Mother’s (Every)Day!

Bad enough that it’s a few days late, I’m now going to make it worse by copying from a Facebook post which was lifted from another site. 🤣

“To the mum who’s breastfeeding: Way to go! It really is an amazing gift to give your baby, for any amount of time that you can manage! You’re a good mum.

To the mum who’s formula feeding: Isn’t science amazing? To think there was a time when a baby with a mother who couldn’t produce enough would suffer, but now? Better living through chemistry! You’re a good mum.

To the cloth diapering mum: Fluffy bums are the cutest, and so friendly on the bank account. You’re a good mum.

To the disposable diapering mum: Damn those things hold a lot, and it’s excellent to not worry about leakage and laundry! You’re a good mum.

To the mum who stays home: I can imagine it isn’t easy doing what you do, but to spend those precious years with your babies must be amazing. You’re a good mum.

To the mum who works: It’s wonderful that you’re sticking to your career, you’re a positive role model for your children in so many ways, it’s fantastic. You’re a good mum.

To the mum who had to feed her kids from the drive thru all week because you’re too worn out to cook or go grocery shopping: You’re feeding your kids, and hey, I bet they aren’t complaining! Sometimes sanity can indeed be found in a red box with a big yellow M on it. You’re a good mum.

To the mum who gave her kids a home-cooked breakfast lunch and dinner for the past week: Excellent! Good nutrition is important, and they’re learning to enjoy healthy foods at an early age, a boon for the rest of their lives. You’re a good mum.

To the mum with the kids who are sitting quietly and using their manners in the fancy restaurant: Kudos, it takes a lot to maintain order with children in a place where they can’t run around. You’re a good mum.

To the mum with the toddler having a meltdown in the cereal aisle: they always seem to pick the most embarrassing places to lose their minds don’t they? We’ve all been through it. You’re a good mum.

To the mums who judge other mums for ANY of the above? Glass houses, friend. Glass houses.

🌏 LET’S STOP BEING ANNOYED BY EVERYTHING & START LIFTING EACH OTHER UP”

This is such an important message for mums today. We run ourselves ragged trying to win a race no one is running with us. We are racing at work, at home among family members, with our peers, with other mums at the grocery store and it’s so much worse now with the internet.

Mothers getting judged for making their only choices sometimes. Always competing, first up, last down, first in, last out. Take some time for yourself today. Wishing you a happy mother’s everyday! 🤗
