Dear moms of babies,
You are exhausted, I know. You aren’t getting enough sleep. You’re in the thick of all of the mommy wars—breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, cloth or disposable diapers, pacifier or thumb—and all you want to do is love your kids well and not mess them up! Baby snuggles are amazing—blowout diapers are less so. You know these days are fleeting but they feel infinitely long, and the next time someone tells you to relax and enjoy them, you just might lose your mind! But you love those little ones with all your might, and that’s what matters. Keep up the good work.
Dear moms of toddlers and preschoolers,
Welcome to the chasing years. These kids never stop, do they? They run and they talk and they eat in a continuous cycle, and they don’t ever seem to need a break. You are potty training and figuring out preschool and worrying that if you mess up either of those things, you may just ruin their college experience. You are teaching them manners and boundaries alongside colors and numbers, and it is all so important. You are laying a great foundation. Keep up the good work.
