Hey Smarties? I see you. I see a lot of us struggling and fighting and having a really hard time and beating ourselves up about it. And you know what? This is hard. Parenting is HARD. And we need to give ourselves a break. We need to be kinder to ourselves. We make mistakes. We have shitty days. We blow up sometimes. We do things wrong. We get lost. It's okay. I have to put this out there because I know how many of us need to hear it. And you are not alone.

This gig is fucking hard. And some days the struggles feel insurmountable. But I see you. I see you working your asses off to do the right things. To take care of your babies and to do your very best. Even on the days that you can barely stomach the idea of momming for one more second. I see you. And you're doing great. You are good moms. You're doing a great job. And I'm proud of you for working hard at being the best parent you can be.

That is all. Carry on with your badass selves, Smarties. You got this.

xoxo Shannon
