Wordless Wednesday – Good Mom w/linky

It turns out this is not so much of a Wordless Wednesday for me this week…..

I had this photo taken in the Molson room at SCCTO.  It’s not as much a statement about myself as it is about all of the other fabulous moms I met that weekend (I do need to add that I met some wonderful women that are not moms as well).  We are all so diverse – stay at home moms, work from home moms, work outside the home moms, single moms, married moms, etc. spread across this country, but the fact that we are all  mothers is a very strong common thread and it is so refreshing to know a group of mother’s that are supportive of one another.  I chose the internet/social media background for a couple of reasons.  The first is obvious, I was at a social media conference and that was another common thread that brought me together with these women, and I also chose it as a statement against all of the mom bashing that is so prevalent both in the media and online.  Until I was a mother myself I had no idea how hard parents could be on one another. Breast feed, bottle feed, co-sleep, crying it out – parenting is already a huge job with some tough choices that need to be made, we need to support each other in this monumental job that we have to raise healthy, happy kids!

So the sign says “I am a good mom” but I am also saying that “You are good mom!”
