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.
