The perfect mother
I don't believe there is such a thing. If there is, then Jesus has certainly returned and we all must REPENT!
For me, I always tell myself that I can do better. On one side of that coin, its the truth, we all can all do better. But on the other side, I'm not giving myself a damn break. Which one is worse?
I'm far from perfect. But my kids love me and think I'm a great mom so phooey on perfection.
It's an illusion. Like control.
