Rant About Grace as a New Mom

Why is it so hard for people to give new moms grace? Like wtf? Especially when you are a solo parent? People complain about everything that they feel is wrong or that they feel you do wrong but no one phucking helps you? What is worst are family members and/or friends who have been in your shoes before? I always want to scream give me a phucking break. I’m over it and tired of hearing the complaints. Ready to shut down on everyone

Second time mum here 🙋🏻‍♀️ you’re doing a good job no one ever really knows if we’re doing things right we are all winging it as we go ❤️

You have to learn to ignore folks. I remember after having my first, my child’s paternal grandmother used to “he doesn’t need a paci” me to death and I would ignore her, literally, and still give MY son his paci 🤷🏾‍♀️. I am on baby 3 now and guess what he will get this paci work too!!! Lol Let’s normalize not going back and forth OR getting in our feelings over petty things that holds no weight. My smart remark is “I mean you can have your own baby” lol but I only had to say that once to someone… 🤭 There is no great book on parenting. Even after multiple kids you will learn as you go! What works for you might not work for me and vice versa, BUT doesn’t mean either of us are wrong in the way we parent. Give your self grace and know that’s the only grace you need to value because people will complain and talk forever… let them….
