As most of you know confessions around here are meant to help us all feel better in our quest of motherhood. It bonds us together, it gives us a chuckle. It makes us think, “Hey! Maybe I’m not as bad of a mom as SHE is.”
Just kidding about that last one.
No really, it makes us all realize that that “Super Mom” mentality is just that… a mentality, not a reality. I mean, we can’t all be perfect mothers all the time. It’s just not humanly possible.
Nothing proves our lazy mom confession philosophy more than this confession I received a few days ago from an anonymous mother. So sit back and enjoy….
I pulled a lazy mom today. We had been really busy the last few days and had a lot planned for the days a head. Today though, NOTHING planned. I really wanted to get some things done around the house (and maybe relax for a bit on the couch) so when my kids wanted to play outside, I had to think quick. I told them that there was an air quality warning on the news this morning so we couldn’t go outside. So we got some things done around the house and later (“when the warning was lifted”) we were able to go out and play.
Two thoughts on this confession.
Thought number 1: Doesn’t being a mom make us DESPERATE sometimes. And we all know that desperate times call for desperate measures.
There. Now don’t you feel better as a mom?
