Here I am. A crafting mom of a very energetic toddler. I don't parent like everyone else. I always figured no 2 people parented the same way. There are some things that are just different. Sadly I learned that online this meant I was somehow a horrible parent.
This is one of the reasons the Mom Pledge was so important to me. I've experienced first hand how cruel other mothers can be when they disagree with you. Instead of suggestions their have been put downs. And rumors...the latest rumor they floated was that my son had cancer. Can you imagine getting messages from people saying they were sorry my son had cancer? I'm even more disturbed that someone would start a sick rumor like that. Garrett is fine, aside from some croup right now
So I'll keep on crafting and loving my son. Ben and I will parent to the best of our ability. We understand every parent is different and that isn't a bad thing. If you're doing your best as a parent than you are the best parent for your child.
