Aly Brothers is a mom of two and she shared a photo of herself with tears in her eyes along with a Facebook post about what’s it really like to be a parent and why you should be a little more empathetic towards them. Aly explained in her post that you should never judge a parent struggling with their kid/kids in public. She wanted to remind everyone that because of all the stares and judgment she got from people when she popped into a grocery store with her 2 kids and they started to act up.
She starts off by saying, “no fancy filters, no good lighting, no new lipstick. It’s messy hair that’s wet from the rain, yesterday’s makeup that I was too tired to wash off, and tears.” She continued. “Motherhood is HARD. Single-motherhood is HARD. These tears started as the cashier of Giant Eagle handed me my receipt and continued for the entire drive home.”
Her Facebook post has now gone viral with over 15,000 shares and 23,000 likes.
