Daily quarantine thought: De-sentimentalizing Motherhood

De-sentimentalizing Motherhood

We’re heading into Mother’s Day season (although, it’s going to be very different this year) and that has us thinking about how much we’ve sentimentalized motherhood. And it’s not all that helpful.

Caroline took a deep dive into the topic, which left me in tears after reading it. You can see her post, The Un-Sentimentality of Love, at Mockingbird today. She talks about Lightening McQueen, polar bear moms, espresso makers, and love.

It’s a must-read.
