The other week I had met up with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. It was great to chat and catch up and talk about what was going on in each others lives.
She was telling me how her kiddo loved a certain TV series on Netflix, and how they also liked this show and that show.
Then she said “It makes it sound like he watches a lot of TV, he doesn’t.”
Why do we as moms sometimes feel the need to justify ourselves? Or explain ourselves?
Your kiddo watched 3 hours of TV today? Mine have those days too!
You fed them popcorn and apple juice for lunch? Welcome to my house last week!
Your kiddo is 5 and still naps? I wish!
You don’t have to justify anything you do for your family. What works for your house, may not work for another and that’s fine! As long as everyone is healthy, happy, and cared for that’s all that really matters.
So let’s stop justifying ourselves and just be.
