A New Kind of SuperMom
You’ve seen her…
The perfect mom.
The one who appears to walk right off the pages of Southern Living with pearls softly draped around her neck and a freshly baked batch of homemade mini muffins in her designer tote that are still warm for God’s sake.
She would never have spaghetti stains on her ankle jeans.
She couldn’t possibly know what it’s like to scrub poop off a crib at 2 am.
And we kinda don’t like her, do we?
Even though we have NO CLUE what goes on in her home. Her head. Or her heart.
Have we gotten to know her?
Do we really know what goes on in her Pinterest Perfect life?
I’m guessing if we are honest, the answer is a resounding, yet sheepish, “No…”
But we sure are judging her, aren’t we?
And if we’re being honest, it’s because we’re chillin’ in our sweatpants during carpool jammin’ to the latest rap watching her strut across the parking lot in her stilettos … and we just feel….well, inadequate. Less than. Not totally up to this crazy intense challenge also known as Mommyhood.
What if we stopped creating mental standards?
What if we committed to stop using the phrase, “there goes that mom again.”
And we just loved each other.
And supported one another.
And (gasp) what if we took the time to actually get to know one another?
Because every single Mom is incredible in her own way. And the real beauty behind the whole “Mommyhood” thing is that we have our own unique strengths…and weaknesses.
We can celebrate both. Together.
It is in our darkest spots, that God can come in to shine the Light.
In a world where kindness is sadly a rarity, let’s be the Moms that love one another unconditionally. No matter how Pinterest Perfect…or lack thereof… 😉 each one of us truly are.
There is a new #SuperMom in town. And girlfriend, allow me to share a little secret …it’s YOU!
Have you ever struggled with being labeled or maybe labeling other Moms?
