The Social Media Pass
I’ll ‘fess up: whenever I screw up, it helps me to know that I’m not the only one who has ever committed that particular “mommy sin.” It’s the beauty of social media: being able to share those less-than-perfect moments and (usually) receive more support than criticism. Other moms telling you they’ve done the same thing, or LOL’ing in response to make it feel like whatever you’ve done isn’t that big of a deal. Or the supportive “Don’t beat yourself up, we all make mistakes” blog comments. . . .
