Today while my 3 year old Bitzy was jamming to the music and story time at our AWESOME library, my 2 year old Brother was having a 100% epic meltdown as I was nursing my 4 month old Nonny in the Ergo carrier. During this “event” I noticed a few things as I was literally holding Brothers mouth closed and loudly whispering in his ear to “RELAX” while trying to hush the baby who was also crying.
Here are my observations that I noted through the sweat drops that were literally pouring down my face:
1. Mamas with one child stared at me like I was a crazy, sweaty, insane, mean mommy who could not control her children.
2. Mamas with two children stared at me with a bit of pity but still looked at me like I was insane and who could not control her children.
3. Mamas with three children stared at me with a “Carry On, Warrior” fist bump.
4. Mamas with four of children or more didn’t even notice.
And yet again, I am encouraged to always, always, always help, encourage and LOVE mommies of all children and give them a solid high five no matter what.
This Mama stuff is not for the weak.
