Hello Mom of the girl wearing heavy jewellery with pyjamas at the supermarket
You may have noticed me and a few other supermarket moms staring at your Lil girl, and I want you to know something important: We weren’t judging you.
Thank you for not being afraid to go out in public when your child didn’t look like he/she was doing a photoshoot for a Children’s fashion catalogue.
You noticed me and my well-dressed kids. Today, my children are clean, dressed, and decently put together, but don’t make any assumptions. I was you yesterday, and someone will most likely be you tomorrow.
Hello, Mom!! Thank you for letting the world see your actual life, instead of just your Instagram feed.
A few days back, I saw a kid throwing tantrum in the mall, and her mom was feeling ashamed of this. But he’s just a little human learning emotion. We will get through them together.
I wish there was some sort of code or secret symbol to let other moms know we understand and aren’t judging them when we see them.
Parenting is hard.
Parenting is hard. SAH parenting, working parenting, part-time working parenting: they all have their different challenges.
I wonder why do we judge others? Why don’t we just lift each other instead of poking each other? Oh, she is in the office she doesn’t have time for her kid. Oh, she stays all the time with her kid, that’s why the kid is not social.
Stop Judging Moms
Stop judging a mom who left breastfeeding early so she could drink wine. Maybe she felt it was the right time for the formula for her baby. Don’t judge a mom who breastfeeds her baby for years. Maybe she is struggling to wean. Don’t judge a mom who stays with their kid all the time at a party or a mom who doesn’t even know where her kid is at a party. Don’t judge a mom for keeping her baby in diapers all the time, and don’t judge if a mom is happy to clean the dirty nappies by herself without using diapers. Just don’t judge!
Motherhood comes naturally
I wish we understand each other’s struggle and stop being judgmental. Everyone is doing their best, and we have no idea what is going on in the lives of others. So, the next time you meet any mom and suspect she isn’t doing her job properly, step forward to assist her. She’ll figure it out on her own because motherhood comes naturally and there’s no manual for it.
When I feel close to losing myself, I try to take a few steps back, breathe, and think about something INSPIRING to help me calm down and see the wider picture. Happy Parenting guys!!
