1. This is a great post!! I have a two month old and it has been hard to find the time to get it all done but I just have to sit back and relax and spend time with my baby! I have to go back to work full time on the 2nd and I’m not looking forward to it. But the post really makes me feel better.

  2. thank you for this molly. i find myself stressing out a lot lately (blaming it on a few rough weeks of terrible sleep) about if i’m doing things right and wondering what i should be different. needed to read this today!

  3. Awww. I’m not a mother but this was soo sweet! I’m sure so many mommies will be so uplifted from this post! And I love all the pictures of you and your baby! Looove the 3rd one!

  4. Thank you for these words. Often, I find myself lost in the whirlwind of work and motherhood, forgetting to switch the laundry over, sometimes having ham and cheese sandwiches for dinner, doing dishes at midnight… But every moment is worth it and I need to remember that I’m doing a good job! You are, too!

  5. great post. i have this strange notion that we mothers should be building each other up and encouraging no mater what type of diaper or food or work you do. parenting is hard and awesome and lovely and gross. lets do it together without all the judging 🙂

  6. Thank you for this today! It’s so easy to second guess yourself and feel like your never doing enough. Is my baby eating enough, getting enough tummy time, sleeping long enough, developing like he/she should? We need to give ourselves grace and trust that we are doing the best for our baby and family.

    Thank you for the kind words today <3


  7. Yes! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this. I just read an article from a (very hard-working) SAHM bashing working parents because her stressors were bigger, greater, etc. I KNOW how hard SAHMs work. I know how hard working moms work. I will not compare. I will continue to support ALL moms/dads/guardians in the decisions they make for their children. Because being a parent is really hard. And really wonderful. You hit the nail on the head, Molly. Thank you for advocating for every type of mom!

  8. OK, this brought tears to my eyes. This was beautiful. Thank you so much for contributing to the conversation in a positive way. Just this morning in the shower I was despairing about how hateful people can be to each other when they have different opinions about the right way to do things; when the reality is, there is no ONE right way. There are pros and cons to everything and we all have to weigh those and make the best decision for ourselves and our families. Your support and encouragement of everyone just trying to do their very best has kind of restored my faith in humanity this morning. Thank you, Molly! Your daughter is very luck to have you as her mother.

  9. Right on Molly! the one thing that made me doubt myself was all the judgmental, unsolicited advice when I had my first son. Thank you for shining a light on all the positive things that come from moms, regardless of the parenting style they choose. I almost killed myself trying to keep up with other people’s concept of the “Ideal Mom”. You’re so smart 🙂

  10. Thank you so, so much for this post! I’m 13 days in to this new role as a mom, and this was exactly what I needed to start my day. You’re doing a great job, too, Mama!

  11. love this so much… so many people people pass judgement on how mothers raise their babies. but as long as that baby is happy healthy, who cares, you are doing a great job. I am a stay home mom, and I won’t compare my life to other moms because it is equally hard. I used to work as well. thanks for this though, its beautiful. very reassuring.
