Well, if this isn’t post-partum in a nutshell… Actually, this is just motherhood. Welcome to eating your meals wherever you can get them.
🚕 Just wanna give a shout out to the moms eating their meals on the go while driving kids to and from ALL the activities
🤱🏻 the moms like me hovered over the kitchen counter eating cold leftovers while nursing a hungry, fussy baby.
👩🏽🏫 the teacher moms eating in a classroom while simultaneously helping a student.
👩🏻⚕️the health care worker moms eating hospital peanut butter and graham crackers for yet another meal.
🏃🏽♀️the moms too busy to find time to eat at all.
🙍♀️🙍🏿♀️🙍🏽♀️🙍🏻♀️🙍🏾♀️ And all the other moms in between.
Wherever you’re eating or not eating today, I see you and you’re doing a good job.
As I was shoveling cold pasta down my gullet, I was reminded that everyday we prioritize the needs of others over our own. That’s wonderful and just what we do as moms often without any thought. The least we can do for ourselves at the end of the day is to take a minute, look in the mirror and say “I’m a good mom.” No ifs, ands or buts, just “I’m a good mom, period”.
