Long Live The Mommy Wars

Newsflash – just because we share the experience of having grown a human in our wombs, doesn’t mean we always have to agree with each other. I’m comfortable with that. I like it. Arguing is healthy and anyone who thinks there’s anything fundamentally wrong with the “mommy wars” has clearly bought into the notion that we are the “gentler sex.” Spoiler alert: we’re not. We’re filled with rage and judgement. And wine.

What if I told you the mommy wars don’t really exist, it’s just that every time women have a differing opinion all hell breaks loose? If the mommy wars are just women not agreeing with each other – I’m all for them. None of us know what we’re doing. We’re all doing our best. But that doesn’t mean we need to have the same definition of “best.”

  1. I don't know that arguing is healthy per say as oppose to respectfully disagreeing. I can't imagine that people shouting at one another gets you quicker to a resolution. But yes I agree with you that we are all different and each trying to our best in our own ways. Appreciate your share and honesty :).

  2. I love to argue sometimes, but usually find that the other person is taking it much too seriously.
