Motherhood Should Come With...

I had completely forgotten about Five-Minute Friday last night...until right after I posted about Abby's 3 month "birthday" and saw Lisa-Jo's post. :) So without further ado, Five-Minute Friday: Motherhood Should Come With...

Go!



Motherhood should come with a club. An all-exclusive, full-membership, clubhouse-included club. With a never-ending pot of coffee. Yep. Motherhood should come with this club: one with a guide for more than just newborn care. One with the rule that prohibits slandering because of child-rearing choices. One where women can just talk about their fears, their worries, their hopes and dreams without any judgement. Where they can just be accepted for whatever they decide to do because, after all, we're all in the same boat. We're all just making do with whatever we have, whether it's breastfed or formula-fed, co-sleeping or not, natural living or surviving in suburbia...the fact is that we're all raising children...to whatever end...to the best of our ability.

Oh, and we'd definitely have this as our theme song. :)



Stop!

Want to join me? Head over to Lisa-Jo's and join in the fun!

I agree!!Especially about the non-judgemental part. We're all just trying to do our best.

LOVE what you said about the non-judgmental club! It made me think of that old adage, "It takes a village to raise a child." It's such a shame that so many mothers judge rather than embrace. Glad to be here today! (And LOL I'm with ya 100% on the never-ending pot o' joe!!)

"We straight up treat 'em for worms . . ." That's hilarious! Happy Mother's Day!

Is there a form I need to fill out for this club? because I'm totally in!! To have a club with women who have done it and survived would be AMAZING! Thank you for posting this!
