Pink shares a photo of the working mom struggle
Anyone who’s had to work while breastfeeding knows — you gotta do what you gotta do. Your boobs just don’t stop producing milk because you’re at work — the body doesn’t work that way. So many of us know exactly what it’s like to juggle a pumping session while getting shit done — it’s what working moms do.
And Pink is a working mom. She shared a photo last night that shows, the struggle is real.
“And now this,” she wrote. And she hashtagged the post #pumpupthejams and #mombreak. She just released the first music video from her first new album in five years — What About Us. “I’m certifiably, insanely proud of this album,” she shared on Instagram. “It’s been a while, and I’m grateful for all the years we’ve had. Looking forward to the next chapter with you.”
Pink has become the poster woman for the down-to-earth working mom. She’s a mom to two; eight-month-old Jameson and six-year-old Willow. She’s constantly giving us a sneak peek into her mom life, and showing us that no matter how different we all are, there are universal experiences in motherhood that we can all relate to.
From cooking dinner flanked by her babies, to sharing beautiful and intimate breastfeeding selfies, Pink constantly shares her #MomLife — and we love it.
She’s no stranger to the wrath of the internet, so she occasionally even gets cheeky with her posts, knowing mom judgment abounds.
“Let’s have a debate about pacifiers,” she joked when she shared a photo of her son’s paci — that she happened to find when it fell out of her bra in yoga class. And the most famous backlash came when she posted a photo drinking *gasp* decaf while she was pregnant.
When the mom-shamers surface, you can bet we’ll have your back, Pink. Thanks for keeping it real.
