On My Own ?—17-Month-Old
Own it, mama. One of the gifts of motherhood: You learn to care so much less about what other people think. In fact, you discover that the way you mother is often different (but not better or worse) than the way others do. If extended breastfeeding/cosleeping/homeschooling work for you, YAY. If you prefer formula feeds, crib rest and enrolling that cutie in daycare, AWESOME. Motherhood is hard enough, so we're all done with the judgment. Buh-bye to all that.
P.S. We are definitely not judging if you reward yourself for some awesome Momming with a special delivery from Goldbelly—which ships America's most legendary and iconic foods straight to your house. ? Send us a Joe's Pizza?
