Today I took The Mom Pledge. Having seen the badge at many of my favorite blogs, I intended to do it some time ago, but waited in order to think about the words of the pledge and make sure I could say it and feel that I was up to the standard.
Mom Enough, if you please.
The TIME cover story from last week with the bare chested woman, was divisive. Suddenly, moms were comparing themselves to a standard they were unaware or didn’t care about the week before. And it made them angry.
The Mom Pledge is about moms standing together in a world that is poised to pit us one against the other. Gathering around to encourage one another, to help each other, and to hear each other.
Not to criticize others. Not to try to change them.
To gain information and pour out our souls. And to behave as nicely as you would as a guest in that persons home.
At least, that’s my take.
You are invited to take the pledge too.
