The tennis star got women talking about their humbling stories of raising kids.
Motherhood isn’t all cute baby photos and smiles. Or as Serena Williams recently put it, “Kids humble us.” In a post on Twitter, the famous tennis star asked moms to share their stories of motherhood, good and bad, after sharing her own story about her 11-month-old daughter on one hellish flight.
She wrote, “Kids humble us. The other day on a flight home Olympia insisted on running up and down the aisle and when I finally got her to sit still she threw up all over me. #ThisMama would love to hear your stories of motherhood … even ones like this!”
And, from baby puke to toddler tantrums, many mothers responded!
My daughter and I planted some seeds together, hoping to grow flowers. I went outside to water them and told her to watch. She locked the sliding glass door on me. #ThisMama got locked out of the house by her two year old— Megan (@dadudella) August 26, 2018
When my child was a toddler, #thismama got dressed up for a very rare night out with friends. As soon as we got to the sitter’s front door, my girl vomited. #thismama cleaned up the vomit, and took my baby back home. But I gets so much better.
