I’m on your side, Kim.
There is a constant battle of the mums. In the blue corner are the mums who stay at home. In the red corner are the mums who go to work. Many many rounds later, we are no closer to deciding who is a better mum.
But now the battle has been taken to the mum we all love to shame…Kim Kardashian.
Let me guess. You probably just thought…Is Kim really a mum? She seems to be constantly without North West (that’s her daughter in case you were wondering).
And that, my battling friends, is the very problem.
Kim posted the following to her 26 plus million Instagram followers.
In case you can't read it, Kim captioned this with the lovely quote:
“Shoutout to all of the moms out there! Hardest, most rewarding & best job in the entire world!!! This couldn’t be more true! #ProudMom.”
For some of her followers, they got the right idea. Kim was doing a shout out to mums. And they thanked her, agreed with her and tagged their mummy friends.
However, some took it as the opportunity to lay evidence of how Kim, despite giving birth, is not, in fact, a mum.
"She has tons! of help, if she was such a good mommy she wouldn't put a fashion show before her daughter," read one.
"Aww that's cute. You dedicated this post to your nanny," read another.
Usually, I hate on celebs for saying how hard their life is and not acknowledging the 20 people who help them get through the day (like a nanny).
But, when Instagram trolls (because that's what they are) started to attack Kim, I got angry. At the trolls.
First, she wasn't really saying her life is hard. Or harder than non-celeb mums. Just that people don't give credit to mums for everything they do. Which is 100% true.
And secondly, and this is the point that had me in a rage, regardless of how much time North spends with the nanny, it doesn't make Kim any less of a mum. Don't believe me?
