Parenting Is Hard, So Fellow Moms, I Will Not Judge You When...

I think all moms can agree on three things: we love our kids, parenting is hard and it’s made even harder when we feel judged. So, fellow moms, I promise not to judge you… 

  • whether you bottle feed or breastfeed 
  • whether you’re a WAHM or SAHM or WOHM
  • if you wear yoga pants every day even if you’ve never done yoga a day in your life 
  • if you feed your kids chicken nuggets 
  • if your kid is the one screaming in the grocery store 
  • on the days you feel great and seem to have it all together 
  • on the days you feel awful and seem overwhelmed 
  • on the days you're the one screaming in the grocery store (or at least want to) 
  • when you cry because the days are so long 
  • when you cry because the years are so short

Let’s just not judge each other at all, OK? We’re in this motherhood thing together.

Ann Marie, What a beautiful post! Absolutely so true and we need the reminder! I also think we need to add not to judge ourselves for the very same things!
