Today, however you celebrate (or don’t), I hope you take a minute to yourself. I hope you take a deep breath, and exhale, and know one thing:
You are more than the extra labels that you may be painted with.
Take away the words working, stay-at-home, breastfeeding, formula feeding, attachment parenting, helicopter, free range, adoptive, crunchy, etc. etc. etc. etc.
Take away all those words, and the ONE label that is important is left.
It’s the one word that ties so many of us, who are so different in so many other ways, together.
And if you care about that label, if you are working in any way shape or form to live up to that label? No other label matters.
So celebrate yourself today, and all the other moms out there, no matter what their “extra” labels may be.
