Ashely Moore is up in arms after getting some serious side eye from judgy mothers for not putting her toddler in socks while at the supermarket.
The frustrated mum shared a picture on her blog’s Facebook page of her daughters bare feet and explained that she was fed up of being mum-shamed.
Ashley began the post by saying:
Hi. You know that mom you’re judging because her kid has no shoes or socks on at the store? Yeah, that’s me.
She continued: ‘I’m aware his feet are bare. I’m aware it might be a little chilly out (or maybe it’s warm, I still get the same looks) I’m fully aware his poor little toes may of gotten a tad bit chilly on the walk from the car to the store. How. Dare. I. Here’s the thing.. in the midst of your judgement on my parenting I’ve become extremely tired of picking up his socks from the floor. I’ve become extremely tired of realising a shoe is missing and retracing my steps through Target to find it. I’ve become extremely tired of grabbing something off a shelf and having a shoe fly right by my face.’
The post has received over 5,000 comments, 38,000 shares and 26,000 reactions. Many parents shared their similar struggles and reassured Ashley that she was not the only one.
