After breaking all the records that she does and being bullied by the Tennis fraternity, #ThisMama just like all mamas go home to more work of being a parent. This is what she shared on her Instagram page, and then encouraged moms everywhere to share their stories too.

Kids humble us. The other day on a flight home Olympia had so much energy and insisted on running up and down the aisle. When I finally got her to calm down and sit still, she threw up all over me and in the aisle. #ThisMama wants to remind all mothers the importance of supporting one another through the highs, lows, laughs and tears.

Share your own stories of motherhood with hashtag #ThisMama. I’d love to hear them!

And her post went abuzz with mommies from across the world shearing their motherhood stories. I’ll share a few here; it’s just amazing how we all go through the same things in parenting and we’re all just looking for support. For someone to say “You’re doing good mommy”, or “oh damn, that happened to and this is how I dealt with it”. It really goes a long way.

mrslynnmiller #thismama I remember taking my then 4 yr old to his first day of preschool, I was emotional not because he was going to school but because his dad and I were separating. My son looked over at my tears without me saying a word about our decision and said mommy “that’s the way love goes” I LOL so hard, he instantly cheered me up. Needless to say he had been listening to Jackie Jackson.

aishiatoddI was getting ready for work after wrestling with my one-year-old. We both were finally ready to leave when I smelled his pamper..ok a quick change then off to daycare and me to work. Instead, he decided to wait until I open the pamper to get up and run around peeing and smearing poo all over the bed. I was defeated and called in sick that day. #thismama

her_manique My baby had reflux I was thrown up on allllll the time. I swear we have over a hundred bibs that we had for her. Reflux went away at 7 months. #thisMama

ashlaylashay When my daughter was about 18 months old , I was in the laundry room put clothes in the washer and I turned around and she was gone from the kitchen as I make my way to the front of the house here comes my neighbour bringing her back up the porch she had unlocked the screen door and went outside 😱😱😱😱 my heart dropped!! I felt like the worst mom ever !!! #thismama

veekjohnsonco#ThisMama My then 6month old cried her eyes out every morning after I went back to work. And I cried every morning in car thinking I had made a mistake by going back to work. I ended up sending my t-shirt that I slept in the night before for her to lie down on. She would smell my scent and calm down. I still cried in the car though😂

johnson_cassie#thismama just quit her job and relocated her family to #losangeles so her husband could follow his dreams…and so she can eventually follow hers as well 😉 but she will first be a stay at home momma to a two year old until the right opportunity finds her.

cpjp119#thismama was awaken at 3:00 am to retrieve a paci that had fallen underneath the bed/headboard-on vacation. God knows what was on that floor😮😳

crimsondiva_03 When my daughter was little, she wanted to be loud during the prayer In church. My cousin had told me that she would pinch her kids when the acted out in public. So I reached over and pinched my daughter and when the whole church got quiet, she yelled OWWW, WHY DID YOU PINCH ME? 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️😂😂😂😂

themommymonologue  #Thismama is going back to work next week after a 16 week maternity leave and I’m anxious. I feel like I don’t want to leave and go back but I also miss my “me time”

tchelle72 Many years ago, my daughter who is a senior now….. walked up to a stranger and said, “You are not the father!” I stopped watching Maury Povich that day!#thismama
