The little one was the last child to get picked up from daycare today, on a Friday evening. That’s something I never thought would happen. Ugghh, Friday is not a day you wanna be late for pickup. I felt guilty but the lady had some kind words to make me feel better. It felt good to not be judged.
Women are judged for many things. If a marriage doesn’t work out, we get blamed, and everyone blames the mother of a child who does something bad. Mom shaming is definitely more common than dad shaming. What most people don’t consider is the guilt and pain most mommas feel when a child misbehaves. No one deserves to be trampled on when they are already down.
Let’s extend grace, love, and help to the momma struggling. Yes, that momma who obviously doesn’t have it together. The one who shows up late for pickup, the one who is often late to meetings, the one whose house looks messy each time you visit, the one whose kid is always misbehaving despite all the effort she puts in……Start with, “are you okay?” Or “do you need help?”
Let’s give ourselves grace. We are the best mommas for our children!
