I am a big fan of Pink as an artist. Love her music and her look, love her confidence and all about her but when it comes to parenting I have a proper crush on her. I mean did you check her Instagram account? One look at it and you know why she gets the “mum of the century” award from me.
She has two kids. A daughter Willow Sage born in 2011 and son Jameson in December 2016. She has caused lots of controversy over the years regarding her parenting methods cause why not. There are millions of “know it all mums” out there who are ready to jump on everyone’s throat just because we don’t do things like they do. What I love about Pink is the fact that she always has an answer for them and she is strong enough not to give a shit about the mean mummy brigade. I mean, why would she.
Look at her. She is not afraid to breastfeed in public in a society that loves a good boobie out in a magazine but judges a natural process such as breastfeeding and categorizes it as disgusting. I agree with her on this and I would do it every day and night. Nobody says I need to lock myself in the house and nurture my child just because I choose the boob over scoop.
She is raising fierce children teaching them to accept themselves as they are, to never change and feel beautiful no matter what others say. Her speech to her daughter made me cry and also inspired me to raise my girl in the same spirit.
She is a badass mum taking her kids on tour. She has an amazing career and she manages to be an absolute cool mother in the same time. Look at her. She always makes time to have fun with her kids, to play and educate them while working out, rehearsing, making music and singing like no other.
She is just like all mums out there and she’s not afraid to say it. She has ups and downs like all of us, she is struggling with sleepless nights, she is cooking and doing household work while taking care of kids as well. The difference between us is: she is doing it so damn well. But it’s ok. It makes me realise that we can all do it, we can all be super mums even if we fail from time to time .
My God she has an amazing and beautiful family . I don’t really need to say anything about this subject as her picture say a million words. I would add though that I did learn from her to not take any shit from anyone and to settle for only the best for myself.
She is funny, she is real and she’s not afraid to say it all as it is and this for me is enough to give me a mum crush on her.
“A really sweet Mama came up 2me tonight at the grocery store and told me some nice words about how she gets strength from my parenting cause I’m not afraid to f— up in public,” Pink wrote. “We cried together. It’s so hard.” She continued, “Y’all. I wish us mamas could give ourselves and each other a break.”
She wants her kids to learn from her mistakes and this makes her a much better mum than most of us. “I see my 6-year-old and I’m like, ‘I just want to give you the shit that I already know,” “But you can’t borrow somebody else’s knowledge, you have to buy your own. I know that too. It sucks when you’re a mom. I don’t want my kids to buy their own knowledge, I just want them to swallow mine.”
What more do you want?
Don’t you just love her so so much?
