“The sisterhood of motherhood.” When I heard that line from the following ads, I got the shivers. It resonated with me so much. It’s true — motherhood is a sisterhood. No matter how different your beliefs are, everyone’s a mother first.
This is super true. I’ve heard enough debate between Work-at-Home-Mom vs. Stay-at-Home-Moms, Breastfeeding Moms vs. Formula Moms, Pick-Up-Your-Baby-When-He-Cries vs. Let-‘Em-Cry-&-Calm-Themselves-Down Moms, and all other kinds of buckets mothers are classified against. It gets upsetting really, especially when you’re deep into the debate or see your friends deep into the debate. It also is upsetting when you feel strongly about one thing and no matter how you agree to disagree, some other Mom finds a way to continue picking on you anyway. It gets tiring.
That’s why I really enjoyed the above ad. It brings us back to focusing on that common thread we have. It’s the same with the ad below.
Moms supporting Moms. Now that’s the only motherhood classification I’m all for.

at Wifely Steps since 2003. This started as a blog to help newly weds adjust to married life. It has evolved into a home and parenting blog. I write about things close to my heart -- good eats, good reads, family, marriage, and the little things that make everyday happy.
