I mean, mommies raise tiny, fragile humans and make sure they grow into happy, healthy, well-rounded grown-ups. No pressure or anything, right?
Well, there can be some pressure.( Or a lot .) Being a mom is an extraordinarily important, life-changing obligation, so it’s only natural for mommies to occasionally question how they’re doing.
The hard proportion comes when mommies question how other mommies are doing. Oftentimes, it leads to harsh criticisms, and that’s not great. At the end of the day, mamas have so much on their plate that the last thing there is a requirement to is another person making them feel bad for their choices.
No wonder this so-called “mommy wars” thing is getting way out of hand .
Think about it: How many TV proves out there continue to feature mean mamas making fun of well-meaning moms? How many “experts” claim that their way of creating children is the best? How many social media posts shame the methodology used to other mommies? The answer is always far too many.
And while mommy wars may get their fair share of attention, remember that there are so many other powerful voices out there mommies who celebrate that it’s perfectly OK for different mommies to have different opinions on parenting. Mommies that have each other’s backs.
So if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, just recollect, there are lots of others moms out there who want you to know just how amazing you’re doing .
There’s no right, perfect, better route of having a newborn! All mamas are badasses, period. Don’t let societal pressures steal joy of new baby.

Here’s to the mom who’s having a hard day, here’s to the mommy who may have no one to share that hard day with, here’s to the mama who can’t wait for bedtime, here’s to the mom who is scrapping by today. Here’s to the mom who left the tv on a little too long and here’s to the mom who wonders if she will ever do this thing right. Heres to the mama who freaking nailed it in the morning and failed in the afternoon. Here’s to the mama who smiles at the other mom she doesn’t know , here’s to the mommy who helps the other mama who forgot a nappy and wipes, heres to mamas who bail other mommies out when they forget that it’s pizza lunch and don’t send money, here’s to the mommy who has other mamas backs even though they do it completely differently, here’s to moms who know this thing is hard and knows everyone is doing the best they can ….. only here’s to moms who support other moms .
To the mamas out there who maintain doing ALL THE THINGS. You’re amazing, you’re inspiring, you’re fantastic role models.

Shout out to all the mommas who got through another week Who won’t be sleeping in tommorrow, who work so hard for tiny humans who never notice Who are tired, depleted& still put their family first Who take 20 minutes to get in the car because you have a mental checklist of diapers, wipes, fave dolls, bottles, nursing encompass, shoes& perhaps the keys Who never get the chance to go to the bathroom in private and who are lucky to have time to shower For all the mommies out there, stay at home moms, working moms, nurse moms& bottle mommies, shout out to YOU! Mommin is by far the most difficult job ever& nothing can truly prepare you for the hard work& sacrifice that comes with this crazy journey You’re doing a great job moms& if you haven’t heard it yet today, YOU are an AMAZING mom! #TGIF #momlife
It’s exhilarating, exciting, and scary at times but ultimately, it’s the ride of their own lives. So show the moms of the world some love, and let them all know just how amazing they’re doing. In the end, we’re all part of the same family called humanity.
