Can You Take It?

 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.

  1. To make the world a better place, which is why we were made.

    That is my belief.

    • Yes, I forget to think of my life in those terms. I feel I am too small, but if not the blog; what?

  2. Your description of The Mom Pledge is perfect! So glad you have joined our community!

  3. Whoever thought of this is a genius!
    Kudos to everyone who takes the pledge 🙂

  4. We women have incredible power. We can choose whether to use it to lift others or to tear them down. I choose to lift! Great job on the pledge.

    Stopping by from SITS. Have a great weekend.

  5. well said!

  6. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Moms are some of the strongest people I know.

  7. That’s awesome! I’ll need to go check out that out. Came by your way of SITs.

  8. I’m totally on board with all of it, but not being a parent, I can’t actually sign up. But I definitely support the principles.

I love it when you sass me. Please leave a comment.
