Pink Cried With a Mom in a Supermarket for the Sweetest Reason

We’re sure a lot of moms would love to be parenting friends with Pink. Since her MTV VMAs Video Vanguard Award acceptance speech, which focused on her daughter and the open-minded approach she’s taking while raising her kids, she’s proved again and again that she’s the kind of modern mom you’d love to sit down and chat with over coffee — or perhaps cry with in a supermarket, which is exactly what happened to one woman.


The “Beautiful Trauma” singer took to Twitter on Wednesday to detail an unexpected encounter she had earlier in the day, writing, “A really sweet Mama came up 2me tonight at the grocery store and told me some nice words about how she gets strength from my parenting cause I’m not afraid to f*ck up in public.”

The 38-year-old was moved by the woman’s confession, admitting, “We cried together.” She then added, “It’s so hard. Y’all. I wish us mamas could give ourselves and each other a break.”

Pink’s followers were quick to agree. “It’s hard being a mom. It’s an emotional roller coaster ride,” one person wrote in response. Another tweeted: “We are all just making it up as we go. I’ve got a 14 year old daughter…NO idea what 15 year olds do…I will wing it when we get there. Love to all the mamas xx.”

A third fan added, “I’m with you @Pink. Was a single mama and needed help. Now I go outta my way to help … when appropriate. Love to see the momentary look of relief when a mom knows someone else has been there and still cares. #hardestjobintheworld”

Dads related, too, with one saying, “I’m a single dad – 19 years! My boy is in his third year at University and on the Deans List for four semesters. I #LoveSingleMoms #ILoveALLMoms because I understand by living it every day!!”

We’re sure Pink’s daughter Willow and baby boy Jameson — and all of the other kiddos out there — appreciate what their parents do for them. Or they will when they grow up, especially if/when they have little ones of their own.

Have you ever had a moment like this with a fellow mom? Let us know @BritandCo!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
