As we celebrate our mothers, check out Cup of Jo’s Motherhood Around the World series. I have long enjoyed following it and sharing its posts about parenting around the world with friends. American mothers living abroad have provided really interesting looks into many aspects of motherhood from birth to schooling practices and what parents feed their children in places like Norway, India, Turkey, Australia and the Congo. It’s amazing to see how different things are in these cultures and it’s also comforting to know that there isn’t just one right way to raise your kids!
We spent the weekend with my in-laws out of state, so I wasn’t able to show my appreciation for my own mother in person, but she’s been an incredible mother and friend to me and I am forever in debt to her for all of her love and support. Thanks, mom! Happy Mother’s Day!
