Open Letter to All Good Moms Doing Their Best

Moving Open Letter Praised Every Single Type of "Good Mom"

Ashle Potter had a message to every single type of mom out there: "You're a good mom."

The expecting mother of two took to Facebook with a photo of herself with her little ones and penned a moving open letter to all moms — including breastfeeding moms, formula-feeding moms, stay-at-home moms, and working moms — to let them know that she sees them, she understands them, and she thinks they're doing a great job.

To the mom who's breastfeeding: Way to go! It really is an amazing gift to give your baby, for any amount of time that you can manage! You're a good mom.

To the mom who's formula feeding: Isn't science amazing? To think there was a time when a baby with a mother who couldn't produce enough would suffer, but now? Better living through chemistry! You're a good mom. . . .

To the mom who stays home: I can imagine it isn't easy doing what you do, but to spend those precious years with your babies must be amazing. You're a good mom.

To the mom who works: It's wonderful that you're sticking to your career, you're a positive role model for your children in so many ways, it's fantastic. You're a good mom. . . .

To the mom with the kids who are sitting quietly and using their manners in the fancy restaurant: Kudos, it takes a lot to maintain order with children in a place where they can't run around. You're a good mom.

To the mom with the toddler having a meltdown in the cereal aisle: they always seem to pick the most embarrassing places to lose their minds don't they? We've all been through it. You're a good mom.

Potter ends her touching open letter — which you can read in full above — with an even more important message: "To the moms who judge other moms for ANY of the above? Glass houses, friend. Glass houses."
