The Sisterhood of Motherhood

“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. :)

    Yes!!! I amazes me how moms can so fervently engage in “mom wars”…we need support, and who better will understand than another mom right? Tired of hearing all the debate. I always say, do what you feel is right because the best thing you can give your child is a happy mom :)

    parenting is already hard enough as it is. to judge each other is the least helpful thing to do with other parents. I’ve come to realize that we parent the way we can but all of us love our children in our own ways.

      Exactly, Anj! We love our children in our own ways. What matters most is that we’re all coming from the same space: LOVE.
