Let’s face it motherhood is hard! We have to keep these little human beings alive while also trying to be a perfect mom.
We all have those moments where we feel like we have failed as a mother. I would like to share my moments of shame, my confessions of a mom.
I have given my children wipe baths.
Ok yes, sometimes the days are exhausting and instead of a bath my kids get wiped down with a wet wipe or wash rag.
I have fed my kids cereal for dinner
Sometimes I do not want to even look at the oven to cook a meal so they get a nice bowl of cereal.
I have forgotten the sunscreen
Yes, my kids have gotten burnt by the sun because of their forgetful mother. At least they got pampered by mom with aloe and popsicles.
I have overslept
When the world was still open and the kids were in school, there were days they were late to school because of dear old mama pushing that snooze button.
I have cried in my car
When my kiddos were younger, there were those dreaded moments when both would be screaming at the same time. So yes, I have cried in the car, supermarket, Church, pretty much everywhere.
I have lied to my children
“Yep, Chucky Cheese is closed today.”
Even with all my shameful mom moments, I still think I am a pretty good mom. They have everything they need, they are healthy and they are loved.
Don’t be so hard on yourself moms. This Mother’s Day, sit back and enjoy being a mom. Look at those magnificent creatures you made and know that you are doing a great job.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful moms out there!
