Mommy Wars

I was sitting at the doctor's office this morning reading a back issue of a pregnancy fitness magazine and they had an article about Mommy Wars in it.

Now I know women in general are competitive and with Moms, it tends to take on a whole new avenue because our children are involved.

Our jobs as Moms are tough ones and we want nothing but the best for our babies and we really will stop at nothing to make sure they are taken cafe of.

I've been guilty of being competitive, I won't lie.

But my feelings are starting to change, just a bit (I think that woman part of me will always have an ounce of competitiveness), I'm starting to think that Moms shouldn't be at war with each other.

Moms should stand together. We should fight together for a better world for our children. Moms should support regardless of the fact if you're pro this or pro that.

Breastfeeding vs. formula. Attached vs. Non-attached. Whatever the situation is, I believe we should work together and if you want competition, make sure it's healthy not toxic for you or your children.

I'm vowing to be exactly that kind of Mom.

Will you join me?

Yup.
I totally know where you're coming from. Because, in the end, nobody knows what a mom is going through... except another mom. Why are we not all on one side?
