So, all I say to myself when others try to put me down is, I'm his mom and I have complete peace of mind. I wouldn't trade it for all the money in the world. I have a master's degree and consider myself smarter than women who choose to spend their day with strangers.
If I feel insecure, all I have to do is kiss my son, hug him harder, and play with him more. I kiss his little baby toes and watch his smile. I take him to the park with our dog, sing to him, and breastfeed him. Life couldn't be more blessed for me.
I also make an effort to feel good by wearing nice clothes -- even short heels. I love my life and most people eventually say I'm doing the right thing, but really, I owe it all to you for your support
