Have you ever been out in public before and saw that mom who’s kids are totally behaved and the mom is sorts of put together; from her hair down to her shoes? We’ve all been there at one point or another. Today, I’m going to let you in on a little secret though…even the most well dressed mom’s with the most well behaved kids are just winging it.
It’s true! Some of the best parents out there don’t even know what the hell they are doing when it comes to parenting.
Parenting didn’t come with a manual, though sometimes I wish it would have. There is no right or wrong way to do it, though I’m sure you know someone who thinks they know everything when it comes to motherhood.
We love to compare ourselves to others. Well…maybe not love to compare ourselves, but it’s something that most of us will struggle with one time or another during our lives. I know I have looked at a mom in the store and thought to myself, “Wow! She really has her shit together. Why can’t I be a little more like that?” or “How can she be so overjoyed with a pet rock? Why can’t I have that excitement?”
Sadly, it happens. The reality of it is though…everyone is just winging it in this thing called motherhood! Nobody has the right to tell you whether you are doing it right or not. Not your mother, not your sister, sure as hell not your mother-in-law 😉 You know what is best for those precious babies of yours and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
