When I became a mom, I wanted to be like June Cleaver, but most days I was more like Joan Crawford. When my first child was born I called the White House and announced, “A future president has arrived!” But with each kid you learn to lower your expectations. When my third child was born, I called Dominoes and ordered a pizza!
Dear Moms, forget perfect today. Forget all of the crazy, unrealistic expectations you had for yourself and your children and embrace your Slightly Off side. Let everyone be Slightly Off today- your kids, your husband, your mother-in-law, your mom. Balance is a myth. The perfect mom is a myth. Have a Happy Mother’s Day!
