You are not alone.
Motherhood isn’t as perfect as most pictures and status updates on Facebook would lead you to believe. At times, it’s filled with tears and self-doubt. Most of the time, however, motherhood consists of tiny moments of grace within a day full of chaos.
You, my fellow plus size mom, are not alone on this journey! Please listen when we tell you that asking for help isn’t a sign of failure, it’s actually a sign of strength.
It is okay to cry.
It is okay to vent.

It is completely acceptable to not live up to the outrageous expectations you’ve placed upon yourself.
You are doing more than you realize, and it is enough.
Regardless of how you became a mother or your parenting philosophies, we welcome you.
