mondays from the mommyhood. . .
we are all in this together
this mommying thing
whether we are black, white, purple, or green
whether we are short or statuesque
whether we are pleasingly plump, a skinny-jeans girl, or struggling to eat healthy
whether we work at a job we get paid for or work at a job we don't get paid for
whether we volunteer or choose not to
whatever our choices - sippy cups, breastfeeding, organic, red shoes...if we're moms - then we are IN IT TOGETHER
I know it's difficult - but we have to take a giant step back - and let the other moms in the club be themselves. . .just like we want them to let us be ourselves.
We all make mistakes - we are all learning about something - we all have something to bring to the group - to make the group. . .the COMMUNITY...stronger - better
Being a mom is an amazing power - we should use that power for good not evil. There's enough room in the community for every single one of us. . .let me scooch over and make some room...
We all have a voice to add to the conversation. . .my mother taught me to take turns, and let others have their chance to speak too. . .I try. . .
What I love the most about "mommy-blogging" is all the voices. The opportunity to take in so many different personalities and opinions - it's a blessing. Let us not forget that there are members of our community that choose not to blog themselves - and that's ok. . .but if they want to put themselves "out there" and share their experiences and their ideas. . .we're here. We will listen and support you.
None of of have "always" been moms. . .we were little girls. . .big girls. . .teenagers (heaven forbid). . .young adults. . .20-somethings. . .learning to be who we are right now.
We won't always be this person we are right now. . .but we will always be mothers.
catch you soon -
