Time Magazine and Mommy Wars

Is it really that bad out there in Mommyland?

While the recent kerfuffle over the Time magazine breastfeeding cover focused on the exposed breast and a four-year-old boy breastfeeding, something else jumped out at me.

The headline.


Talk about a titillating question. 

What in blazes is "mom enough" and who decides?

Today, let's talk about the so-called Mommy Wars and how it affects you. Share how you've felt judged, and how you've caught yourself judging other moms.

Do you ever find yourself editing what you say around certain relatives or friends, not wanting to incite a mini-Mommy War?
