Hey Good Mom!

If you've ever felt judged by another Mom, this blog post I read today is a beautiful reminder that we need to extend grace to one another. Thanks for the insight, Megan Gahan.

hey good mom . . . .

you're a good mom if you say 'heck YES' to the epidural

you're a good mom if you go without



you're a good mom if cans of formula line your cupboards

you're a good mom if you're fussing with nursing covers and praying you don't flash anyone




you're a good mom if your babe wails at bedtime

you're a good mom if you rock your little one until they drift off



you're a good mom if you go organic

you're a good mom if you go kraft dinner



you're a good mom if you spank

you're a good mom if you prefer the time out



you're a good mom if you're working a corporate gig

you're a good mom if you're a domestic engineer




you're a good mom if you read every parenting book under the sun

you're a good mom if you only read people



you're a good mom if you've got your third load of laundry churning away as you read this

you're a good mom if you can't recall the color of your floors



is your little love happy?

healthy?

loved unconditionally?

then guess what?

you,  my friend, are a good mom

and, chances are, so are all those mommies around you

so let go of your judgements

your personal preferences

and give yourself

and those around you

a bit of grace today
