Taken From Facebook................about all the good mothers





I saw this on Facebook yesterday so had to share it here because I think it is just so bloody spot on.

To the mum who's breastfeeding: way to go! It really is an amazing gift to give your baby, for any amount of time that you can manage! You're a good mum.

To the mum who's formula feeding: isn't science amazing? To think there was a time when a baby with a mother who couldn't produce enough would suffer, but now? Better living through chemistry! You're a good mum.

To the cloth nappy mum: fluffy bums are the cutest, and so friendly on the bank account. You're a good mum.
To the disposable nappy mum: damn those things hold a lot, and it's excellent to not worry about leakage and laundry! You're a good mum.

To the mum who stays home: I can imagine it isn't easy doing what you do, but to spend those precious years with your babies must be amazing. You're a good mum.

To the mum who works: It's wonderful that you're sticking to your career, you're a positive role model for your children in so many ways, it's fantastic. You're a good mum.

To the mum who had to feed her kids from the drive though all week because you're too worn out to cook or go grocery shopping: You're feeding your kids, and hey, I bet they aren't complaining! Sometimes sanity can indeed be found in a red box with a big yellow M on it. You're a good mum.

To the mum who gave her kids a home cooked breakfast lunch and dinner for the past week: Excellent! Good nutrition is important, and they're learning to enjoy healthy foods at an early age, a boon for the rest of their lives. You're a good mum.

To the mum with the kids who are sitting quietly and using their manners in the fancy restaurant: Kudos, it takes a lot to maintain order with children in a place where they can't run around. You're a good mum.

To the mum with the toddler having a meltdown in the cereal aisle: they always seem to pick the most embarrassing places to lose their minds don't they? We've all been through it. You're a good mum.

Sometimes we all need to hear this, and stop judging each other, and celebrate our differences.

Please share this with all the mummies you know, they may need to hear these words!

  2. Oh, I really love this Jo-Anne. It's brilliant. So often, you have people trying to critisize mums for one thing or another. But this is really spot on!We all do our very best and that's all we can do. I wish that a lot of young mums could read this, so that they wouldn't have to stress quite so much. Love the little photos and quotes today as well.
