Good Mom Bad Choice

23 May

I often tell my daughter, you are a  good girl, you just made a bad choice.  Mom’s, we are no different.  I truly believe we are all good moms, but many times we make bad choices.  It’s a pity we aren’t more honest about our tendency to eat shit because I think we would feel better about ourselves if we knew we weren’t alone.  Let’s be honest.  In our efforts to be great women, wives, and mothers, we often fall short and ,well, frankly we suck.  And while I appreciate those perfect mama’s who are able to look spectacular, juggle their household duties, execute a career, calmly nurture their children, and round out a day with a Victoria’s Secret Strip tease for their husband’s, I would much rather swap stories with the other moms.  The ones that I can relate to.  The amazing women who realize they are works in progress.  The women who can share their struggles, laugh at their mistakes, and encourage me to look beyond the challenges of today.   So feel better all you mighty, sweet mamas you are not alone in your foibles.  You are in grand company!
