Remember You’re a Good Mom

Remember You’re a Good Mom

Dear Mom,

This morning you might have woken up feeling guilty… thinking about the big decisions you had to make this past week.

I want you to remember that You’re a Good MOM. You’re trying your best and that is what matters.

To the mom 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 mom.

To the mom 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 mom.

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

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

To the mom 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 mom.

To the mom 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 mom.

The importance of a gentle routine for babies and children of working Moms

To the mom 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 mom.

To the mom who gave her kids a homecooked 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 mom.

To the mom 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 mom.

To the mom 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 mom.

To the mom who had a natural birth: Congratulations! You set your mind to do this and you did it even though there were moments of weakness and pain! It must be so rewarding. You’re a good mom.

cesarean section

To the mom who had an emergency c-section: It must have been so scary ! You made the best choice you could for your baby’s health and brought home that little bundle of joy just days after having major surgery. Remember You’re a good mom.

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