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!
