For All the Moms of the World:

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 home cooked breakfast lunch and dinner for the past week


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.

  1. GREAT post!! I love how it makes EVERYONE seem special no matter which route to mother hand you took! 🙂

  2. Awesome! This would be perfect for Mother’s Day!

    1. Thanks. I just couldn’t help but share it was such a lovely sentiment.

  3. Jenn,

    I love how this encompasses moms from many different approaches to mommy-hood and encourages and edifies them all. A gentle and timely reminder that we can all do the same by encouraging our fellow moms even if we do things differently. Great post!


    1. This essay really moved me. So often we’re made me feel like only one answer is right rather than recognizing there is more than one answer.

    1. Always glad to join. I really do love the idea of a pinning party. I find a lot of great ideas to add along with my Friday Flash Blog.
