BUILDING UP YOUR FELLOW MOMS!

I will be the first to admit when I get hurt or angry I will run my mouth.  I have made a collective effort to stop that as part of my new year's resolution.  I am not perfect I don't ever expect anyone else to be either.  I have been on the receiving end of mom-shaming as well.  I am not a perfect mom I have made a ton of mistakes raising my kids.  Are there things I wish I had done differently? You better believe it! Are there things I would have done the same way again? Yup!  But one fact does not change and that I would move mountains to do anything for my kids!  So why I am posting this today?  Well, I belong to a phenomenal online community of woman and during the live feed we were participating in this morning it dawned on me how much love and strength there really is out there.

As a community of moms can you imagine the mountains we could move with us all coming together and working as one? I mean seriously look at the big picture all moms have special and hidden talents and if we just worked together building each other up and helping promote each other can you imagine the good that could happen?

In a community of woman, we feel each others pain and loss because most of us have been through the same thing or at that very moment probably going through a similar or same experience.  We should comfort those in need and celebrate when a fellow mom triumphs. We should not slam those moms out of jealousy or hatred.  The same goes when they are bragging about their kids or husbands.  They are bragging on them for something awesome that happened then we as moms should take up the mantle and congratulate them. If we have pride in our family and brag about it why shouldn't any other mom as well?  Not one person is better than the other.

As mom's we are the ones who need to teach this generation that hate and slander will not be allowed. We need to show our kids by actions and examples that we need to banish the hate from our life and live with love and tolerance in our hearts.  We are the foundation of our homes, we are the ones who are raising the future of the human race and if we don't teach them how to live and tolerate they will be in a ton of trouble.  So let's celebrate our differences as moms and lead our fellow mom's in becoming a strong and mountain moving group building each other up instead of taking each other down.

SCHOOL DROP OFF LINES


Warning this post is a rant from a mommy who wanted to hit the gym.

I know the picture say's five however today I would like to just mention the one that annoys me the most.  Today when I was bringing Robbie and Sarah to school on my way to the gym we were waiting behind this parent who annoyed the dickens out of me.  First all through the road and parking lot to get to the drop off area when there was not one single person in front of her she kept stopping.  Then where there is a sign do not block handicap parking she blocks it and then gets mad when the car in the handicap spot starts up.  After she lets the person in the handicap spot out she had to stop in front of the doors (well the closest area near the doors) as the teachers are waving her to move forward.  By this time the line is forming and parents are doing the you must me real special glare.  Now I know there is cases when parents don't want to pull up. Examples are if your Jenny or Megan hurt themselves and are on crutches, No parent will argue with that.  Or little Sarah or Robbie are carrying projects.  Us fellow moms and dads are not idiot's we understand.  But when you want to watch little Susie go at snails pace to the front door park it sister because this mama wanted to hit the gym this morning.  All I am saying is be considerate to those dropping their kids off as well.  Well all this Mama is at the gym so you all have a great day and happy school lines to you.
