That we are enough…
When I wrote a post about toddlers with their full nappies and you tell me I’m a neglectful parent, you are trying to hit me in my core. All I have ever wanted to be is a good parent.
When I write about letting children eat 2 minute noodles for dinner and you respond telling me that’s child abuse, you want my soul to ache. Child abuse are two very cutting words, my life revolves around protecting my children from abuse.
We love our children with such purity that when it is questioned we shatter, you want us to shatter.
That is the curse of motherhood, that is our vulnerability and it has been used against us for long enough.
So thank you… Thank you for reminding me how utterly important I am. Thank you for subconsciously whispering words of encouragement into my ears. Thank you for forcing me to never give up on this movement.
Thank you for giving the queens a chance to defend our rights to parent judgement free. We have been held back for far too long.
Because I have always loved women so much, believed that we are guilted too much, expected to much of and pushed too far out of fear of not being enough.
When we are more than enough.

The thought of my queens being belittled, squashed or judged by you or guilted by your viscous voices is just not good enough for me.
I won’t let that happen, I won’t let the queens be overpowered by people who benefit from keeping us unsure of ourselves, guilty or not good enough.
Because we are more than enough..
We are so fucking good enough, we give our lives to our children, we do not have to enjoy every moment of it, we do not have to be perfect, we are entitled to our fuck ups.
So thank you haters, thank you for so publicly proving my point, thank you for being the example that I have been looking for.
Thank you for pointing out how much the world needs Queens.
Thank you for trying to hurt me, your words barely brushed past me, but the power and motivation they bring will last a life time.
You have empowered the queens all over the world to say enough.
We are enough.
