You are not falling as a mom. This blog is just so beautiful. It reminds us to slow down! YES! slow down! stop comparing your life to other people, or to news articles on what is expected of a mom. Just slow down, take a deep breath, and know that you are not failing as a mom!

Lots of love,

I figured we all have days where we feel like we are failing because we are not meeting our own expectations, or we may be having a bad day.

And it doesn't help to see media images of Sueprmom.

Dirty secret: Supermom resides in Arkham Asylum. She wears lovely white jackets with extra-long wraparound sleeves.

Me, too!  I have two little ones, and trying to balance two under two plus a 12 year old (and a grown up baby-husband, lol) is almost more than I can stand at times!

Great pick me up today. I don't have a single family member of my own who has visited me after having my second child. My father is the only one i have contact with and its only by phone. My husbands family is wonderful but I really wish I had my own mom around to tell me I'm doing a good job. She is not around by her choice by the way. Really liked reading this article. If I had a mom in my life I would hope she would say something to me just like this. :)
