Inspired Stumble Upon!

I ran into this post today from the "we are that family" blog.  It inspired me.  There is so much truth to this that so many people ignore.  Many of us mothers are really just needing that extra acknowledgement that we are doing good. That our struggles are not unique or outlandish and that we are important and needed.  I especially needed this today so I thought I would share it...

What Every Mom Needs

In my past eleven years of parenting, there have been moments when I’ve been absolutely desperate for a nod of approval from a family member or a friend or both-you know one that says, “it’s going to be okay, you’re doing a good job.” Just that simple act can brighten a mom’s day when she feels inadequate, exhausted, and is currently wearing the lovely shade of spit-up.
I guarantee there’s a mom in your life right now–a daughter-in-law, a friend, new neighbor with a baby on her hip and one in her belly, or you’re own reflection in the mirror–who needs a nod today.
What Every Mom Needs
  • It’s okay, really. My kids argued constantly. You will survive this phase. This is normal.
  • I had a picky eater also. Once for a week, she only ate marshmallows and glue.
  • I lost my temper, too. That doesn’t make you a bad mother, only human (in need of chocolate).
  • Don’t be so hard on yourself. Every mother gets a year or so behind on well child checkups (RIGHT??)
  • No, that’s never happened to me. My baby slept 8 hours each night since birth and was perfect. Something must be wrong with you.
  • It took me seven years to lose the baby fat, too. It might take you eight (pats flabby arm)
  • My kids never acted that way in public.  Are you giving them red dye?
  • What is wrong with your child? <——–Don’t ever say that to a Mom.
Every mom needs to know:
——————————THEY ARE NOT ALONE————————————
Every mom needs to feel:
Every mom needs to be told:
——————————-THEY ARE APPRECIATED——————————
Every mom needs to believe:
———————————THEY ARE ENOUGH——————————–
Every mom needs to remember:
Are you a mom? What do you need today
In one word, what do you need?
