The hardest part of being a new mom.
I thought that the hardest part of being a mom would be figuring out the right things to do. While it was the hardest part, it was for a reason entirely different than what I expected. Not only are you making life long decisions for someone else (that’s the part I thought would be hard), but you are being judged for every decision you make. Everything from breastfeeding vs formula; to vaccinate or not; or to get your son circumcised; elicits strong opinions from everyone around you. It surprises me that in a world where we are moving towards celebrating people’s individuality and uniqueness, that we still continue to judge other’s decisions. So MOMS celebrate and respect our differences, if we were all the same this world would be a boring place.
