This was EXACTLY what I needed to read this morning!

A friend of mine shared it on Facebook, and it really struck a chord with me. Hopefully it can touch someone here in the same way. :)

 

There’s this crazy phenomenon going on right now. Good, devoted mothers get on Pinterest . . . and blogs . . . and Facebook . . . and Twitter . . . and then they flip through parenting magazines and TV channels (full of advertisements and media hype) . . . and they’re convinced they’re not enough.

Thank you for posting this. My mom has Alzheimer's and I miss my "real" mom so much. I also am sad that my kids will never experince what a wonderful woman she way (although they love her just the way she is because that's all they know). I need to think about all the wonderful (metaphorical) gifts my mom gave to us long before the days of computers whenever I'm feeling less than adequate.

I wish women were not so hard on themselves. I just got back home from drinks with a friend. When she texted me, she said, "I am dressed sloppy," and I said, "good, then I have no pressure to dress up!!!"

 

I made rainbow jello once and my kids are still talking about it several years later, lol!

I don't have a domestic bone in my body, so I really don't care whether or not I can make ice cream cone grilled cheese. I do need to appreciate those days of snuggling/laughing together in bed as a whole family. In fact, we need to do that again ASAP b4 my kids think they're too old.

 

Thank you for sharing this.

My mom isn't in our lives right now. It makes me sad, but I know it is for all our safety.

 

My son just informed me that they were ready for me to read History to them. I'm off to just be with my kids. Snuggling, tickling and laughing together.
