I know Mother’s Day is over, but…

daisyThe past day or so I’ve been thinking about all of the mothers I meet, friends, my children’s friends’ and classmates’ mothers, mothers of my daughter’s gymnastics class or mothers of my son’s track team. They are lots and lots and lots of women of just about every thinkable background and they all do things a little differently, but they all are doing their best for their kids. I wish it was not so easy for people to look negatively upon situations that don’t occur in their homes. Sometimes mothers are unconventional and sometimes they have a child with special needs and those needs demand that all rules that satisfy society’s ideas about motherhood be thrown out of the window. Most mothers are doing the best they can with what they have. What they have just might be different than what you have or I have.

  1. This is true of parents and anyone who works with children. Also, children respond differently to different adults. A child totally compliant with dad may argue with mom for every little thing.

    • That is so true! I know I remember as a child that we did NOT want my dad to have to leave work and deal with something we did at school *shudder* so we were WAY more compliant with him. Smh.
