Not only is Kara Bishop a wonderfully hilarious mom, but she’s an accomplished writer that’s graciously accepted the Lubbock Moms Blog position of Founding Contributor. She has a gift for sharing her motherhood journey in a way that we can all relate to and want to be a part of! Cash and Chloe, lovingly dubbed Doofus and Diva, never fail to provide plenty of material that Kara turns into social media gold. She’s even put this perfect poem together to introduce the reason we are all here.
“I am mom”
I used to roar
However, now I look around
I thought I had the answers
There wasn’t a question
But now I can’t hear myself think
Above all the aggression
One friend tells me to vaccinate
Someone else says it’s poison
Some kids talk at 1 year
While my 2-year-old is frozen
He needs therapy someone says
He needs to change his diet says one mother
“My son was talking in complete sentences”
“Is he mouth-breathing when he sleeps?” asks another
Post after post on social media
All explaining the only right way
The problem with that is
The “only” position doesn’t hold sway
Seems like moms are divided
Breast is best or is it fed?
Everyone fighting their corner
Sleep train or sleep in mom’s bed?
Parenting gets complicated
What happens when we disagree
Confidence can disappear
We’re judged for doing things differently
We forget the foundation
On which we base our decisions
It’s all about the best interest of our kids
So, what’s up with the derision?
Why are we fighting each other
Seems like we’ve got enough disputes
Is there a solution to the madness?
Maybe we can join a common pursuit
So, we’ve made a community
For moms of all measures
Welcome to Lubbock City Moms
Where we’re all in this together.
