Mothers are beautiful in many ways, but there is something about millennial moms that make us unique. We were told as teenagers if we got a tattoo we would never get a job and live with guilt for the rest of our lives. If we got piercings in places other than our ears we were delinquents and if we dyed our hair a bold color we must have been hanging with the β€˜wrong crowd’ of friends. I am thirty one years old and I have tattoos and piercings. I even experimented dying the tips of my hair teal at one point of my adult life.

How am I doing as a mom with all of this lunacy? I am doing quite well actually. I am responsible, I make necessary appointments, and I care for my son when he is sick. I love him unconditionally and I celebrate the small victories of childhood- just like any other mother. It’s what is on the inside that counts, not the outside on how good of a mother you are.

The National Center for Health Statistics shows there are more than 16 million millennial moms in the U.S. This post could have easily been about the negatives of being a millennial mom, but when it comes down to it, we are all mothers. It does not matter what generation we are from, we all have one thing in common and that is providing the best for our children and their futures.
