Sometimes, it seems like there is just such enormous pressure to be a super mom. You should be a cheerful and creative mother, a loving and, um, loving wife, an excellent and efficient keeper of your home, and be able to do all of the awesome projects you see on Pinterest. It’s easy to get overwhelmed in your role as Mom. Well, I’m here to share something. I’m absolutely not a super mom.
Despite any cool stuff I may share on this site or on social media, I do not have it all together. Whatever that means, anyway. This is a safe zone for you other moms that aren’t super moms either. It’s okay to not be perfect. None of us are. Even the ones that pretend that they might be.
In this week’s episode of the podcast, I hope you’ll find some encouragement, as well as probably some laughter, at just ten of the reasons that I know that I’m absolutely not a super mom.
After you give it a listen, I hope you might come back here and share some of your reasons in the comments or on Facebook. But, more than anything, I really just hope it brightens your day a little bit. (Plus, you’ll find out the reason one of my sisters is positive that I’m our Mom’s favorite, while I’m just chalking it up to my Mom’s desire for self-preservation.)
This week’s podcast episode is approximately nine minutes. So, pick your favorite nine-ish minute task or errand and start listening.
