Blogging about your kids: “Will you resent me for this website? Absolutely. And I have spent hours
and days and months of my life considering this, weighing your
resentment against the good that can come from being open and honest
about what it’s like to be your mother, the good for you, the good for
me, and the good for other women who read what I write here and walk
away feeling less alone. And I have every reason to believe that one
day you will look at the thousands of pages I have written about my
love for you, the thousands of pages other women have written about
their own children, and you’re going to be so proud that we were brave
enough to do this. We are an army of educated mothers who have finally
stood up and said pay attention, this is important work, this is hard,
frustrating work and we’re not going to sit around on our hands waiting
for permission to do so. We have declared that our voices matter.”
