From the “Real Moms of West Michigan” segment on Star 105.7 with Tommy and Brook…
Are you trying to be super mom?
The truth is, we desperately want to be super moms don’t we?! We want to save the day and create world peace while we’re at it. But that’s just not reality. The truth is that motherhood is taxing to say the least and all of us feel it. I think that we confuse being a super mom with being a perfect mom.
I’m here to tell ya, there’s not one woman out there who is doing this mom thing perfectly. Read that again because it’s a whole lotta truth.
I don’t care if you see women that seem to have it all together, they don’t, being a mom means that we have children and children are unpredictable and messy.
I often say things that I regret and do things that I wish I hadn’t done and by the end of the day I feel guilty that I wasn’t the perfect mom that day.
Moms, I want to encourage you to give yourself a break. It’s never too late to take a deep breath and emotionally start your day over. Whether it’s breakfast or bedtime, forgive yourself and start again.
The bottom line is that no mom is perfect but we are ALL super moms, and sometimes we just need to give ourselves a break.
