Teresa Faria | Cancer got my skin, but not my spirit

See that beautiful woman? She’s one of my oldest friends. Since Kindergarten… we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve shared, we’ve fought, we’ve made up (obviously). She has such a huge part of my heart. She needs our help, so please, please help. If you can donate even $1 so that she can take care of her medical issues and enjoy happiness for a change, I would be so very grateful. If you cannot donate, please click the link and share from the site to get the word out and help keep it active. Thank you.

PS She has not been able to update today, but she got word from her Doctor. She does not have cancer in the uterus just polyps and a fibroid the size of a plum. She has to have the hysterectomy and SOON.

5 Mom-Shaming Trends That Need to Stop Now | Mommy Nearest

For the record 
#1 – I breastfeed and formula both. For awhile. E ended up with failure to thrive because I wasn’t producing enough. J ended up on formula because I thought I was dying (and I actually was. Whew! Good save there Doc!).
#2 – I feed my kids what the hell ever I want. I have organic, non-organic, healthy and junk. If you don’t want your kids eating/drinking it while they’re with me, send your own.
#3 – I suck at parties. I’ve posted our sad attempts at decorations, lopsided cakes and homemade games. Even J’s Frozen party was not really “Pinterest-worthy’ but I posted it there so others can learn from my mistakes and see the awesomeness from my friends’ helping us! 
#4 – I only laugh when I’m people watching with W. Lol. J/K. We are the first to point out our awesome outfits of tshirts and stretchies/jeans and oversized jackets and hole-filled gloves! But, that one Mom that dresses like a hoochie to pick up her kids, yeah, we make fun of her.
#5 – I’ve been both. And I’ve been racked with guilt while being both. You will never make anyone else happy. Try just to make yourself happy.
#6 – It was mentioned in the comments. I had 2 c-sections. After E, I felt so shamed that I didn’t “give birth” or “deliver” her. For many years, I said “I had her” or “When she was born”. I cried. DH comforted me. I felt like a loser because I couldn’t do what was “natural. All those times he told me the same thing, that if my body had allowed it, I would have. But not matter what, she came FROM me and we were alive because of that choice. When it came time for J , I gave birth to her… even though it was a c-section. And Thank Heavens for the C-section or I would have died during childbirth.
Now, no more shaming, no more judging. Unless you live in the perfect world, you suck as a parent too
