Links of Love: The Honest Mama Edition

Posted By Jessica Fisher On December 10, 2008 @ 4:35 pm In Links of Love,Parenting and Family | 4 Comments

This week has been one of feeling like a major loser as a mom.

And it’s only Wednesday.

The house is a mess; meals have been haphazard; school has not been the well-oiled machine that I would like to think that it is.

I just haven’t been up to snuff. At least not in my book.

So, I particularly appreciated these honest posts by fellow moms who see their flaws and persevere. Laugh at themselves. Get over themselves. Move on. Thanks, ladies! I’m glad I’m not in this boat alone.

Loved Jeana’s honesty as she described what a jerk she was [5] to her kids recently.

Here [6] Laura comes to grip with being okay with not being Everything, or even Enough.

Finally, I was encouraged by Nancy’s exhortation to moms to Wrap Up the Stress [7]. From a mom of three and grandmother of many, I appreciated her light hearted counsel to put things in perspective and be joyful.
