I wasn’t always so forgiving in the game of parenthood. When I consider all the personal time wasted on mommy self-loathing, sometimes I wonder how I’ve come so far.
That’s not to say I still don’t second guess myself, I do, but only when I’m not busy comparing myself to other parents. I mean, obviously.
I’m not the parent who coaches her kid’s team, volunteers in the classroom, or feeds her family organic home cooked meals. I’m willing to bet a lot of you aren’t that parent either. Does that make us lazy schmucks? Not by a long shot.
There’s no shame in our game. We show our dedication to our families in different and equally important ways, that’s all.
I compiled a list of 10 things that don’t make us lazy parents. If you agree, please share the post! It’s about to get all revolutionary up in here; I can feel it.
If you’re still not convinced, be sure to check out 10 Ways I Fake Being a Good Mom for tips and tricks to fake it ’til you make it.
