I am trying to be a perfect mom, but guess what? It's just not working..... the dishes are still in the sink, the garbage is still in the wastebasket, the laundry is about to hit the ceiling any day now etc. etc. etc... But my son laughs really hard at my silly faces, climbs all over me, gets dirty from head to toe on a daily basis.

great post ... i like the truthfulness. sometimes being "perfect" isn't all it's cracked up to be ... and "perfect" can mean many different things.......

Very cute family pic btw :-) Lilsugar, thank you so much for being a real mom. I am always so happy to come to this blog and find real post by real moms. I too have forgotten so many things to turn in. Unfortunately my son has a stepmom that is a perfectionist super type A personality (but loves him so I can't complain too much) and I'm often left feeling like I am the worst mom in the world. It's nice to read these kind of posts and just feel normal :-)

It takes a truly great and confident mother to admit all this. I can't help, but respect that. No one is perfect. NO one.

I was a nightmare for my Mom about socks. She used to have to take them out of the package and feel the edges (where the stitching is by the toes) to make sure they weren't too thick then she'd have to come home and trim them further. I would scream bloody murder about the socks hurting my feet. I can't imagine what karma is going to do to me.
