You’re A Good Mum

I came across this the other day, purely by chance. It really is what every single one of us has wanted to hear at some point along our parenting journey. I just had to share it!

To the Mum 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 Mum.

To the Mum 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 Mum.

To the cloth nappy Mum: Fluffy bums are the cutest, and so friendly on the bank account. You’re a good Mum.

To the disposable nappy Mum: Damn those things hold a lot, and it’s excellent to not worry about leakage and laundry! You’re a good Mum.

To the Mum 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 Mum.

To the Mum 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 Mum.

To the Mum 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 Mum.

To the Mum who gave her kids a home cooked 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 Mum.

To the Mum 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 Mum.

To the MumΒ 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 Mum.

To the Mum’s who judge other Mum’sΒ for ANY of the above? Glass houses my friend. Glass houses.

I have no idea who wrote this wonderful verse, so unfortunately I am unable to give credit where it is due. If anyone reading this knows of its original origin please do let me know.
