A Pledge between Mothers
by the poet mom
I will never criticize your parenting
Because my child will exhibit that same behavior tomorrow.
I will never mention that you’ve worn the same thing three days in a row
Because I have, too.
I will listen while you complain about your husband
Because I know you love him.
I will support every crazy idea you come up with
Because we have to dream.
I will love your children even when they are naughty
Because they are a part of you.
I will be your champion when you need me
Because I know you’ve got my back, too.
I will always be available for retail therapy.
