So I am reading this book, which is telling me what I already know, but more inspiring and well written... Its called Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the age of Anxiety... The insane expectations and judgment (mostly from each other), is unbelievable. We all feel the same way. The constant competing is so sad and only makes those who judge feel worse about themselves. I am so sick of hearing about if you don't breastfeed, or breastfeed long enough, or get this car seat, or enroll your child in this, or do 15 different activities per day etc, then you are a bad mom. We are all (for the most part) doing the best we can. We need to make ourselves happy to be good mothers, and that is NOT being selfish! I recommend that all mothers read this book. Its not going to teach you anything new, but it will make you think.Answer Question

That's funny you bring it up. I just bought that book. It's crazy the way we are with this type of stuff. Ok,my oldest just started PreK and last week she had her first snack day. I actually made myself a nervous wreck wanting it to be absolutely perfect. My original idea didn't turn out right so I really panicked. Then I looked around. I had treat bags,marshmallows,m &ms,cheerios,and raisins. Trail mix. Was it the perfect snack that went exactly with what they were studying? No. Did not only they love it,but the teachers did as well as it wasn't messy? Absolutely.
