A Message for you Amazing Mothers…

A Message for you Amazing Mothers…

Dear Moms,

Please stop feeling guilty.
You’re doing a great job, and you’re very loved.

Stop feeling guilty about not…
* Crafting the impossibly over-engineered snacks you so regularly pin on Pinterest;
* Cooking 3 scratch-made meals every day from organic ingredients that you purchased with coupons and on-sale;
* Exercising at least 6 days per week in accordance with industry standards;
* Volunteering for every possible activity at your kids’ school;
* Proactively identifying opportunities at these same schools, and starting up and leading at least a couple groups of your own;
* Perfectly filing away and cataloguing every little drawing from the creative hands of your little creations;
* Attaching a cute, insightful little caption to every one of the tens of thousands of pictures on your phone, tablet, and real camera;
* Keeping a spectacularly clean, un-lived-in-like house, without handprints on the glass, juice drops on the table, and crayons on the floor; and
* Remaining up-to-date on the latest medical and consumer research on parenting and motherhood.

Please stop feeling guilty.
You’re doing a great job, and you’re very loved!

These expectations are not what make you important.
We love you for loving us!
You’re irreplaceable, and you’re amazing!
