You're a good mom

Saw this and loved it, so had to share...

"To the mom 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 mom.

"To the mom 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 mom.

"To the cloth diapering mom: Fluffy bums are the cutest, and so friendly on the bank account.  You're a good mom.

"To the disposable diapering mom: Damn those things hold a lot, and it's excellent to not worry about leakage and laundry!  You're a good mom.

"To the mom 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 mom.

"To the mom 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 mom.

"To the mom who had to feed her kids from the drive thru 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 mom.

"To the mom who gave her kids a homecooked 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 mom.

"To the mom 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 mom.

"To the mom 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 mom.

"To the moms who judge other moms for ANY of the above?  Glass houses, friend.  Glass houses."

Admit it...we all do it at some point.  I know I do, and I don't even know which one of these moms I'll be yet!  In any case, this is an excellent reminder that we were all raised a little bit differently and most of us turned out just fine.   So let's stop judging and just keep loving our kids the best way that we know how!
