A Pick Me Up

I came across this a while ago when I felt kind of like I wasn't keeping up or not doing well enough as a mom.  It made me feel somewhat better.  Lately, I've been thinking about some things that I feel I've missed out on and it's probably ridiculous, but I can't help the way I feel.  I thought I'd search for it hoping to feel better.  I originally saw this on Facebook and I don't know its author, but I wanted to share it.   Hopefully, it will make another mommy feel good.

To the mom 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 mom.
To the mom 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 mom.
To the cloth diapering mom:
Fluffy bums are the cutest, and so friendly on the bank account.
You’re a good mom.
To the disposable diapering mom:
Damn those things hold a lot, and it’s excellent to not worry about leakage and laundry!
You’re a good mom.
To the mom 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 mom.
To the mom 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 mom.
To the mom 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 mom.
To the mom who gave her kids a homecooked 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 mom.
To the mom 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 mom.
To the mom 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 mom.
To the moms who judge other moms for ANY of the above?
Glass houses, friend. Glass houses.
 Let's be more supportive.  And remember ladies:
