When you become a mom, you can pretty much count on being judged for ... well, for just about anything and everything. The judgement starts in pregnancy; what you eat, drink, which supplements you take, whether or not you exercise (you can't win here, exercise/no exercise is equally bad depending on who you ask!). Then you have the baby, but guess what? People are going to judge the kind of delivery you had, whether or not you had an epidural, if you delivered in a hospital or at home or in a zen birthing center. Feeding the baby is a red-hot judgement zone, as is how your baby sleeps, whether or not you have help, and what kind of diapers you use.
Motherhood is located on the corner of Judgement Street and You're Doing It Wrong Lane, basically. Sadly, a lot of this judgement comes from other moms, WHO SHOULD KNOW BETTER. One of the worst ways we're judged (remember, often by other moms) is when it comes to working moms vs stay-at-home moms. We're so tired of this fight, you guys. Thankfully, we have pages like Sanctimommy, who call the BS out when they see it. Don't come for working moms if you're not ready to feel their wrath!
Sanctimommy shared this comment on their page, and we can definitely see why. This is peak sanctimonious BS, and we're sick of it. This person seems to think that working moms are actually harming their children by not staying home with them. We're slowing our children's development, guys!
Basically turning them into lumps of clay with all our poison formula and daycare. If you stay home with your kids, you too can have a toddler with the language of an average 5-year-old! It's all so ridiculous, but thankfully the Sanctimommy commenters had time that day.
Who needs a toddler who talks like a kindergarten student when you can have a child whose immune system can withstand the zombie apocalypse?
Different strokes for different folks, right? Spending all your waking hours with small children can really take its toll, so maybe daycare it self-care.
Psssssh, you mean you don't balance a full-time job with full-time motherhood? Well, at least you tried.
Hey look! An actual doctor chimed in, and wouldn't you know, none of what the perfect mom said is even remotely true. How great would it be if this doctor was raised by a working mom and had formula and packaged food and learned their first words at daycare? The bottom line is, we're all doing the best we can, and we need to mind our business when it comes to what others are doing. Also maybe don't share stupid opinions on Facebook.
