“So you are just a stay at home mom?” “Are you ever going back to work?”
Questions that are meant as accusations are asked with a judging smirk
“Working mom” is uttered as if it were a dirty phrase
What kind of mother would leave their child at this early stage?
A mother nursing in public makes people turn away their heads
While others look in disgust at a baby that is formula fed
Dr. Spock, The Ferber Method or channeling Dr. Sears
Women trying all they can to get through these formidable years
Courage of the keyboard comes out at home at night
With social media perpetuating the mommy wars fight
From disciplining your child to what you’re serving on their plate
The opinions flung out towards you, are full of judgment & of hate
Mother against mother, each thinking they are better than the rest
Just because it is your way does not mean that it’s the best.
You raise your child your way & I will raise my child mine
When it is all said & done, I bet they’ll both turn out just fine
