'Mom So Hard.
Whether you're having an I #momsohard or a "man, mommin' is so hard" kind of day we're all in it together.
We all try our hardest to be the best mom we can.
To feed our kids right.
Treat them right.
Raise them right.
So, why are we so hard on each other?
Why is there so much mom shaming going on?
Do you not think these other moms are hard enough on themselves? I know I am.
"Did I feed them a good enough dinner?"
"Should I have made them wear a jacket today?"
"What if something happens to them because I'm running late to get them?"
Mom life, is a hard life, a rewarding life, a stressful life.
Shouldn't we be trying to raise one another up instead of putting one another down?
Whats it matter if you had to buy cookies for the bake sale while another mom made 4 dozen from scratch.
That doesn't define you as a mom. ANOTHER MOM DOES NOT DEFINE YOU.
What does define you?
Your little makes you pull your hair out second guess yourself lose your mind adorable little children.
They define you.
They make you.
You ARE enough. I promise you your children look at you like you walk on water.
You are the world to them so STOP letting other moms shame you and make you feel like you aren't enough.
Because I promise you, you are.
The struggle is real.
The tears are real.
The stress is real.
But YOU are real too.
You are an AMAZING mom. Don't forget that when the days get rough. The kids are screaming. The house is a mess. Don't EVER forget it.

Has your little one asked to write a letter to the big jolly man?
Did you know, with the help of the USPS your little ones can write a letter to Santa AND get a response? If you didn't, now you do!
According to the USPS, in 1912 Postmaster General Frank Hitchcock made it legal for postal workers and local citizens to respond to the hundreds of Santa letters they received every year.
Years later its actually a huge to do!
You can actually 'adopt' a letter if you live local enough to a participating post office. If you choose to adopt a letter you can do one of two things with it. 1. Respond as Santa Claus or 2. Make the little ones Christmas wish come true.
