Saw this going around Facebook.
LOVE




This was posted on RagaChat and I just loved it! I hope it makes someone's day!



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.

That's wonderful and I completely agree. We all may choose to parent differently, but as long as our children are loved and well cared for, we are doing what we are meant to.

Exactly!
I really think everyone (for the most part) just does what they feel is best for their kids and work hard for that.
So why argue over it?
A big reason I posted on BG. Just a reminder we're doing what we can :)

I think as parents that's a goal. Just work to the best of your ability to keep the kids healthy and happy. Everybody's path will be different.
