CONGRATULATIONS TO JEN OF RUNNER MOM WHO LINKED UP THIS BEAUTIFUL POST! YOU’RE THE WINNER OF A SIGNAZON PRODUCT OF YOUR CHOICE. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR LINKING UP. JOIN US NEXT MONTH ON NOVEMBER 12!
I understand that bloggers can write whatever they choose in their own blog. It is their space after all.
In fact, I champion it.
But are there things that shouldn’t be written?
Especially about your children?
I share here about the hard and the easy of motherhood. Inevitably, those stories involve my children, the people whom I’m mothering.
No matter what I write though, I do my best to respect my children as people.
One day, they will read my words.
I want them to know that I’m proud of them, that I love them.
I would not want them to think that their mother embarrassed them, that at any point, I was ashamed of their actions (or of mine).
This blog here is to honor them.
I understand that bloggers who have written about ‘baby shaming’ and ‘mom shaming’ are doing it in good humor.
“It’s meant to be funny, people! Don’t take it so seriously!”
But anything to do with children, I take damn well seriously.
So today, inspired by my friend and special guest co-host of Memories Captured October, Tracy of Sellabit Mum and her post, Strive For The Happy, Galit and I are happy to be introducing the Baby/ Kid Honoring Edition of Memories Captured.
Tracy, Galit and I would love to see how YOU honor your children this month. Capture a memory of how your children does you proud daily. And of course you are free to link up any beloved memory this month too.
Link up from October 15 to 19 (linky closes at 9pm Eastern)! Please do include a Memories Captured button and/ or link back to any of the hosting blogs.
Do take the time to visit the linker above and/ or below you!
