Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.  ~Dr. Seuss

Do you like Dr. Seuss?  We love him in our house.  And I love this quote of his, especially being a Mom.  Amidst the countless parenting books and infinite “words of wisdom” that are solicited and even unsolicited, this quote rings true.    As long as the health and safety issues are in place,  there is no perfect path toward motherhood.   And I’m just glad for that!  Because no child dots all the I’s and crosses all the T’s, we rise to the challenge to match our mothering style to fit their unique personality and isms.

So let the endless criticisms go and embrace the uniqueness of your child and your match as a mother.   Because while other’s opinions are helpful, but they don’t always matter.
