A little throwback to when the nights were a little warmer. While most of you will like this post and make super supportive positive comments, I hesitate sharing these pictures because I have been “mom shamed” before. But here is the thing... I don’t care anymore. I work really hard to stay in shape and live a healthy lifestyle. If I happen to be proud of my progress (especially after a trip to France) and want to share that pride, I will. I’ll be my my own #wcw 😊
I only hesitate because I hate the need to explain myself. I hesitate being on the defensive end of a conversation. I guess no one enjoys that. I hesitate because I know posting a picture of myself in a revealing outfit will welcome judgement.
I say... Bring. It. On. Go ahead, judge and mom shame away. It doesn’t matter to me and here’s why.
Parenting is freaking hard. Sometimes we have our rough moments, but the good ones make it all worth it (hopefully 😜). We are all doing our best. So before you ask me where my kids are on a Friday night (with their loving grandma), what I do all day as a stay at mom (helping people with their health goals and being my own boss), or what my kids think when I wear a short skirt (it doesn’t even register because I don’t make it an issue), just know that I make an huge effort everyday to teach my boys to be respectful of everyone, stand up for what they believe in, and be compassionate to those less fortunate.
What I wear has no bearing on my ability to raise my kids. It doesn’t matter if I wear baggy sweats, a business suit, or a bodycon dress with stilettos. I do what is best for my kids. I’m a good mom. Heck, I’m a great mom. My kids are happy, well adjusted, and kind to others. No one can or has the right to tell me otherwise. Not only am I proud of them, but they are proud of me. They genuinely think I’m a cool mom and it’s their opinion that matters to me most.
I'm a cool mom... or at least I try really hard to be. I have a passion for health and fitness, and I love sharing with the world.
