  1. Maybe those mothers should spend more time mothering and less time judging other mothers. Some moms love the pictures, some moms love the experience, we’re all just doing the best we can and should be smiling at one another not giving anyone poo-face because they do it differently. I loved this post!

    Fantastic write. There is always a balance…but yes, some of us love the pictures. Some of us haven’t seen a girlfriend face-to-face in weeks, and a quick message back and forth is the best we can do. The bottom line is, we just shouldn’t be judging eachother. Period.

  3. I’ve been thinking about this post since last week. I’ve been blogging for almost a year now and I will admit my relationship with my phone has changed. I use it for everything. All of the things you mentioned in this post. But I agree with you Darcel, I’d don’t see the use of my phone any different than when I’m at the park chatting it up with another mom or reading a book on the bench. Motherhood is just way too hard for us to sit in judgement of others. We shouldn’t do it.

    Heck yes! This is awesome. I especially love this “Maybe she’s wondering why you keep staring at her instead of playing with your own kid.” Haha! We are all doing the best we can. Thanks for a great read!

  5. I live with my phone attached. When we’re out at the park, I’m the mom with a camera. I’m not sure how on earth we can be “too busy to pay attention to our children” when we’re behind a camera… or taking pictures of our children at the park. That never made much sense to me. Why do we feel the need to make assumptions about each other in the first place?
