The Pledge

I just saw this on another May Mommy's blog and thought it was definitely worth reposting. As mothers the following points are important for us to remember and reflect upon. As I read each of the items I find that 90% of the time I DO follow "The Pledge." Its the other 10% I need to work on!

I will not sit in judgment of other mothers.

I will be supportive and understanding when I see someone else having a bad day, struggling with their child’s behavior, etc.

I will acknowledge that we all love our children and we’re all doing the best we can to raise them, but we will all make mistakes sometimes.

I will remember that parenthood is a journey, not a race or contest, and it is full of twists and turns, and more than anything else, full of lessons to learn.

I will remain strong in my faith in myself as a mother and not let others make me feel incompetent or unsure.
