The lovely team over at Puj have just announced an inspiring Moms are Beautiful campaign and a big giveaway just for moms! They recently asked a few mothers to take part by submitting a quote about motherhood to help to share the ‘moms are beautiful’ love. I was thrilled to be asked and so happy to take part! (Celebrating mothers is something we should all do more often, no?)
I sent over the above quote because it’s one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned as a mother, and something I continue to remind myself at different stages of my parenting path. It can sometimes feel like we mothers are constantly inundated with information and tips, whether it’s from the latest how-to books or whether it’s the advice we hear from other mums on the playground. (I, myself, am guilty of passing on advice and sharing opinions. I have also found myself on the receiving end of it too.) In any case, I think it’s important that we mothers give ourselves a bit more credit and that we trust our intuitions and be assured that we really do know what’s best for our children.
You can click over to Puj to read other quotes about motherhood, check out the great prizes to win and enter the giveaway here.
Couldn’t agree more! This has been my parenting philosophy since my eldest was six weeks and I threw away the books and refused to return to the clinic for advice straight out of said books. All babies and kids are so different – mine weren’t in books! My only advice to anyone is to ignore the advice and go with your gut and what you know your child needs. And then I tell them to ignore me too and find their own way!
Love this. It would make a really great gift for a baby shower. Mums need to learn to trust themselves and having this print would be a great reminder.
Simply put and perfectly true. Love it, Courtney!
Love this and love you!! Xxx
