We are all different. We need to learn to love each other and stop criticizing each other for the decisions we make. Motherhood isn’t a straight road on the freeway. It’s a road with many turns, curves and dead ends which we have to learn to drive on.
Maybe you feel like today you are at one of those dead ends; turn around and take a different route.
Rise up from the fall because cutting out shapes from play dough matters and singing nursery rhymes to your toddler matters!
Feeding your child non-organic food doesn’t define you. Using disposable nappies instead of reusable ones doesn’t define you. It’s a choice. What defines you is that you’re doing the best you can to be the best mom you can in your situation.
There isn’t a grading system for motherhood because this really isn’t a game, its reality. And in reality, everyone lives differently. All that matters is your child and the love you give him/her. Not the Pinterest-perfect life the world expects you to live or the celebrity mom you are supposed to look like.
Love is all your child wants. Ignore the world and its two cent suggestions.
You need to be proud of who you are and the awesome things you doing in the difficult situation you are in right now. Your children need you, not the world.
