For most people, parenting isn’t a walk in the park.
It’s even harder if you’re a celebrity.
For instance, Pink, an award-winning pop star is a mother of two. Her daughter Willow is aged 6 and her son, James Moon is a little over a year old. Pink is notorious for her candid and frank attitude about parenting the two kids. She’s posed hilarious breast-pumping photos and owned up to the fact they weren’t as uptight as they used to. Anyway, she just keeps it real about the not-so-glamorous aspects of being a mum.
She recently posted on Twitter about a heartwarming encounter she had with another mum in a grocery store.
“A really sweet Mama came up 2me tonight at the grocery store and told me some nice words about how she gets strength from my parenting cause I’m not afraid to f*ck up in public,” she wrote on December 28, 2017. “We cried together. It’s so hard. Y’all. I wish us mamas could give ourselves and each other a break.”
That post inspired another mom to share her own encounter.
Her twitter username is @Betty_Begen. She posted:
“One night 12 years ago I was at a casual fast food restaurant and my youngest was throwing food, my older ones bickering and my husband embarrassed.
An older beautiful woman, 75 or 80 yr old woman came up to me, held my hand and said, ‘Don’t expect perfection, your little one is exploring, learning, and growing.Even Jesus threw food, and was a baby. ’ She kissed my cheek. That moment has impacted me so deeply.
I always stop to encourage mothers with young children.It’s so important as women that we show [love]. The simple compassion in that tiny moment, still makes me tear up. ”
