Underneath the Face

Parenthood Experiences

💄Underneath the Face💄

By Kelly Sutton

Caring for a life brings highs and lows. We mamas go through so much physically, mentally, emotionally, and hormonally.

#tbt my fourth trimester. I’m literally and figuratively wearing a face.

Struggling with postpartum depression while appearing like I’m on cloud 9 was one of the hardest times of life.

Don’t get me wrong, I poured all that I had into my kids in the midst of PPD. They were loved, nurtured, and cared for.

My husband did the best he could do love and care for me.

BUT BE AWARE of the mamas around you that are wearing a face. Love on them. Express appreciation. Support one another.

The ones that speak about themselves or other mamas as if we aren’t doing the BEST we can – these are the mamas that need to be reminded that we are all in this together.

Insecurities, anxieties, gossip, all that ish just adds an unnecessary layer to mamahood.

Let’s “go natural” mamas; let’s take off the face.

Then actually support each other. Mamahood is busy enough. So do what you can when you can.

We know how annoying it is when we get a judgmental bystander judging us about our kids’ actions, SO WHY judge each other? Why assume the worst of another mama out hear busting her back wearing multiple hats to ensure everyone else is taken care of BEFORE herself.

Let’s not give a mama another reason to put on a face.

Let our genuine, natural smiles shine because we feel and are uplifting each other because we are a commUNITY.
