True Confessions

It has come to my attention that at least one of my readers thinks my blog makes me look like Perfect Mom.

So I'm here to tell you that on some days I find it nearly impossible to do a good job of loving my two-year-old.

Today is one of those days.

There.

Thus, in my opinion, making you a perfect mom! :)

Well I hope you have a better day tomorrow, PerfectMom :)

I like reading your blog because you aren't a perfect mum - but an honest and entertaining one...

Hang in there....

Gran said...

And he'll soon be 3.

Mary Beth said...

I've heard that's even worse.

You are perfectly great.

I'm sure you are not judging yourself for not being perfect... almost sure anyway.

Not sure enough to make me not say that perfection is an illusion and nobody can be, and if we were how developmentally warping would that be on kids anyway?

Aren't the things you love most about other people some of the things that make them not perfect?

I think your blog is honest and sweet and, unlike others', does not appear to be your attempt to make the world think you're perfect. The person who said that probably just loves you for who you are...like everybody else does!

It reminds me of when Jesus says, "Be perfect" (in Matthew 5:48) he's not talking about sinless perfection. He's talking about a 100% committed effort to love God with heart, soul, strength, and mind.

You make a 100% committed effort to be the best mom you can be... and in the sense of Matt 5:48, that's counted as perfection.
