Mama, move at your own pace.
We didn’t rush to potty-train. Our kids were ready when they were ready.
We waited to start sports until we knew we could stand all the extra running around.
We waited to visit family and friends until we felt comfortable with the pandemic precautions.
We waited to take the training wheels off bikes until the kids let us know it was time.
Because it doesn’t matter what timeline others are on, parents know what’s right for our own families.
The world will try to pressure us to hurry it all up.
And good meaning people will chime in with advice on how we might do our job better.
But as a parent, raising up our littles is our responsibility.
So, don’t feel bad about taking your time to ease into anything.
Remember, motherhood is not a sprint. It’s a marathon.
Don’t let anyone rush you, Mama.
It’s okay to move at your own pace.
