Kim Simon tells a bit of a sappy story. On the positive, I believe the message is "Great Job Mom--You Did It. You Survived Raising Your Child Up To This Point." Congrats! Really? Do we really need a pat on the back like that? Am I so heartless or riding a high horse? I think I am sensitive about things for sure, but I have not cried when dropping off my children at school. I felt they were ready and frankly, so was I. I just did my job and am still doing it. I can't look back on stepping on fishy crackers or legos with a misty eye. I just can't. Does that make those moms better than me who for some reason relate to this article without a dry eye? I thought so for a second. Then Mr. Hausfrau said, "Why do you have to compare? No need to compare." So, the article was not my cup of tea. It was some peoples' cups of tea, but not mine. All over hair color from a box is not my cup of tea, but it is for some people. What I have to keep reminding myself is that we are all different and you know what, that is ok. THAT IS OK. And, then, someone posted this video on FB that I could relate to and I thought was genius. It will remind you that whatever works for you might not work for everyone else and that is ok. THAT IS OK. We all need to just listen, support, and not judge. NOT JUDGE. My sister gave that up for Lent one year--boy, wouldn't that be tough.
