"In truth this morning I feel like you’d see #MomFail in my eyes. Lots of reasons, not the least is bribing the Boy to go to school with the very lollipop I took away & expressly told him he couldn't have for breakfast. *sigh* But at least he went to school, right? #PostiveThoughts" -March 11, 2015
When I first heard about the #Mommitment movement, it was a no-brainer. I have long tried to be a positive force, to see the bright side & offer kindness. I am always ready & truly happy to support another mom. Stop the judgements - Stop the MomWars - Sign me up!
The truth is, when it comes to motherhood I've felt like a failure from the outset.
#MomFail: We use the term so casually, throwing it about on social media, in conversations at the park and on those rare & cherished moms' nights out. We use it to describe all the ways (big and small) we aren't living up to the perfect vision of motherhood.
I vow to treat myself with the same kindness I would show another woman, and reserve my self-judgement in favor of embracing the best I am able to do today.
I encourage you to join me.
