Ok,so it has been said before. It’s been blogged about plenty of times. It’s something lots of women write about on social media.
Mums against mums. Women against women. Why do it? Why not just live and let live? I honestly do not understand why women feel the need to tell other women how they are in the wrong. Surely it’s just a case if each to their own. Right?
My parenting style will no doubt vary to someone reading this. It’s impossible to be the same as every other mum! I allow the odd takeaway when I’m too tired cook. Some days I just think “fuck it,the laundry basket can wait!”. My house isn’t as clean as some people’s. My children do play outside without socks and shoes a lot of the time.
I swear. I get angry.
Does this make me any less of a person?
And why is it usually women who do this? Men seem so much more laid back than us girls. They don’t appear to try and outdo each other in the parenting stakes. They don’t criticise each other for swearing,getting a bit fed up,for the clothes they wear…
Isn’t it about time women started looking at each other and seeing that we are in the same boat?
Today I was criticised for something I said about breastfeeding (I don’t care how you choose to feed your baby. That’s your business not mine. Just don’t shove your opinion down my throat and try to make me feel bad for my choices) by other women. Apparently we aren’t allowed to get along at the same time as having differing opinions! I just don’t understand why. We should understand each other. Telling another woman to not wear something because YOU think it’s trashy is pointless. She likes it,let her feel good and Wear it! Don’t tut at the mum who’s toddler is having a tantrum, especially if you have been there yourself!
Stand tall with your fellow women
