The Truth About Perfect Mothers

by Stephanie on March 4, 2014

“I can not keep up with these perfect moms…” This mom is hilarious and heartfelt as she recalls the perfect moms she encounters throughout her life as a new mother. “Sometimes I sneak a Starbucks, because for the love of all that is holy I have been feeding this child every two hours around the clock for the past seven weeks. And I need caffeine to do things, like shower. And swallow food.”

Bless you. For saying what we all need to hear. And adding humor so we can get that glorious relief of laughing out loud :)
