I really do believe that mom guilt comes in massive waves. Some days, you feel like you’ve got this whole mom thing together. The kids are playing happily, you had a few extra minutes to clean the kitchen, and you even had time to prep dinner before three p.m (that in itself is a huge accomplishment, right)?? But, the next day all of those feelings of accomplishment quickly vanish. The kids have thrown five tantrums before nine a.m., you have a meeting you’re already running late to, and you’ve lost your patience more times than you’d like to admit.
As I sit here writing this blog post, I’m giddy with excitement! I love sharing brands with my audience that I love, and what makes me even happier is that all of the brands I’m sharing today are Canadian! There’s something incredibly important and special about supporting our local stores. And the thing is, there are so many amazing ones!
Ok, I’ll be honest…I’ve been debating as to whether I should write this article or not for a little while now. I think it’s simply because I want every single mother (and person in general) to love their bodies. There are so many people telling women how they SHOULD look postpartum. The media is a very good example of this, consistently belittiling women for not losing the baby weight fast enough, and showing photos of celebrities two weeks postpartum with a six pack.
