There’s a ton of information these days flying around at moms and moms-to-be about what we need to do or should be doing to be “good” moms. So much in fact that sometimes it’s hard to hear the most important voice of all – our own.
This space in the blogosphere is about a mom, me, who is working hard to embrace my feelings of inadequacy as a mother and to remind myself that it’s okay to have a bad day, it’s okay to not have an organic meal prepared for dinner, it’s okay to not have a blog where I write about the fabulous educational outings I take with my kids, it’s okay to not to have an innovative craft project planned for a Saturday afternoon, it’s okay to yell from time to time, it’s okay to have piles of dirty laundry in the hallway, it’s okay to feel buried by an avalanche of paper, it’s okay to not want to enroll my kids in a slew of classes to make sure they are “exceptional”, and it’s okay to admit that the happiest time of the day is the end of the day when my kids are finally asleep.
And most of all, the mission over here is that, although there are external signs everywhere pointing me in all kinds of directions telling me what it means to be a supermom, I know that the real truth is…
“Being a supermom is simply a state of mind.”
I try to get myself into the right state of mind every single day…
…and I hope you can too.
Spread the word.
