No Perfect Mothers
I spent the first few years as a mother very stressed out. I was trying to be the "perfect mother" and do it ALL----career, kids, husband----with the ease that I saw on TV.
I thought "other moms" were able to do it. I constantly beat myself up for not being able to pull it off. Even to some of my closest friends, I did not admit how unhappy I was. After a few years as a mom, I relaxed a little and found a way to be a mother but also be MYSELF. Not exactly June Cleaver but it works for our family.
My girls have learned to cook early because I can “burn water”. One Summer, the girls traveled the country with me to tire sale events for a retail client. We had a blast and my girls became amazing sales women.
I try to put new moms at ease by telling them some of my funny "new mom" stories. I hope my stories help them realize if I can raise kids, anyone can. Being yourself is so much better than trying to be "perfect".Original Deep South Moms Blog post.
