“There is so much wrapped up in the idea of being a ‘Basic Mom’ these days. And, for some reason, the classification gets such negative attention. How that doesn’t count as discrimination for being allowed to like what you like, I’m not sure. But, I’ve got no shame in my basic mom game. I may wear black yoga pants three days a week but, I do some not so basic things in them. Like, keep tiny humans alive. And try to raise them to be respectful, loving, & wise. Teach them that it doesn’t matter what they’ve been labeled as long as they know who they are and that their relationship with God is good. I may live off Starbuck, but because I spend my nights feeding a newborn and my days worrying about the well being of her siblings. (Plus, coffee is just plain amazing!) There may be such a thing as being a basic mom but there is NOTHING basic about mothering. Every day is a new challenge. Every day we get it done.
A basic is essential and we are just that to our wee babes. Power through!
