I never judged other moms, a least I never judged other moms “out loud”. When I was raising my Littles, they went everywhere with me, the grocery store, restaurants, church, even the library. Never a problem, my little ducklings followed along and all that was needed to rein them in was that “look” out of the corner of my eye. I refused to look twice at a struggling mom or tantrum throwing rebel, knowing all that Mama needed was a wee bit more training in Mama School ~ After all, if she was consistent, loving and didn’t think more about herself than he wee charges, she would be a tad more successful in this high calling we deem Motherhood… OOPS! Everything I have ever secretly thought about another mom’s lack of skill or any judgement I made of a bratty child has come back to bite me 10 fold (how much is that exactly?). I guess some might say, “I got mine”. As an older Mom if a little, I have learned a few things, okay a great many things. I have changed and I am sorry.
