Can I just gently whisper something into your ear? No matter what choices you make, if you whole heartily love your child and seek the best for them, you are the best mom for your child! There is so much debate in mommy-hood land, where the big bad wolf is that other mom who measures up just a little bit more than you. She makes you feel inferior and lacking. You question whether you are doing everything right. Whether you are meeting the mark. There is no mark. God gave you these little babes, and God gave them you. Only you, sweet Mama.
Give yourself some grace.
Stop comparing yourself to the status quo which never stays stationary and is always changing.
There is no such thing as the perfect mom.
But you are the perfect mom for your child.
