Anyone seen the latest cover of Time magazine?
Chances are good if you were anywhere near Facebook today you may have caught a glimpse. If not, here it is.
Now, I know you are all thinking you know where this is headed, and if you think I am going to talk about how I am incredibly insulted by the headline of the magazine that will be hitting news stands just in time for Mother’s Day, then you are right.
“Are you mom enough?”
Seriously, Time magazine, seriously?
I certainly can’t imagine seeing that headline about fathers before Father’s Day or any other week of the year, quite frankly, so what makes you believe it is appropriate for mothers, especially on this weekend?
I won’t be purchasing your magazine or any other issue, thank you very much, but I will go ahead and answer your question.
Yes, I am mom enough.
You know why? Because I am a mom.
And that Time magazine is enough.
The act of actually doing is enough.
The only “style” of parenting that matters is the one where you are raising your children to be upstanding, productive members of society who don’t suck.
So, my dear, readers this is my Mother’s Day wish for you:
1) Don’t buy Time.
2) Know from the bottom of your own heart that even if your Mother’s Day card is written right in front of you (What? Huh? I totally don’t mean that could ever happen to
anyone me), you are Mom Enough.
P.S. If you are looking for a way to feel really good about humanity this Mother’s Day, head on over and visit one of my favorite blogs on the planet and check out how they helped the world this Mother’s Day. They are most definitely Mom Enough,and I took great pride in doing my part to be one of their Mother Puckers!
