I started this blog because after years of thinking I must be doing something wrong if I was struggling so much to keep a clean home, gets kids to do chores, stay fit, pay all the bills, and get a nutritious meal on the table each night, why did it seem so easy for other moms? I like to think of myself as a fairly intelligent, capable woman so I was convinced these other “Wondermoms” were somehow imbued with super powers. I was merely a Wannabe. I had more #MomFail days than #Wondermom days.
You Are Not A Failure
Over time, I realized that no mom is as perfect as she seems. We all face challenges and self-doubt, just some hide it better than others. I devoted myself to finding hacks to do more with less energy and in less time and share these finds with other moms so we could all feel like Wondermoms. If you are here because you feel like you are failing at motherhood, I want you to know two things:
- You are not a failure. Most of us feel this way far more than we ever admit.
- All the ways you failed?? How awful you did today or last week? It’s just not true. You’re doing better than you think.
We All Have #momfail Days
We all have days when dinner is a flop, we lose our temper and yell at the kids, we eat an entire box of Girl Scout cookies, or we drive the kids to school in our pajamas. To prove that you’re not alone, I want to point you in the direction of this brand new (and free!) video series created by two moms who have lived their fair share of #momfail days.
Stephanie and Beth are not only popular bloggers, but they’re also moms in the trenches. They’ve got 8 kids and almost 20 years of mothering experience between them.
They also understand and have the deepest compassion for moms who are working their tails off, but still hitting the pillow at night with a heavy heart and tear-stained face, because they feel like they’re failing at one of the most important things they’ll ever do in their lives.
And so they’ve put together an honest, candid and incredibly encouraging series of three videos just for moms. It’s called “The Truth About #MomFail Culture: 10 Things You Need to Hear on the Hard Days”.
It won’t solve all your problems, and much as they wish they could, they can’t reach through the computer and fold your laundry for you. But we can all benefit from a fresh perspective and encouragement from someone who really gets it.
Each video is short – around 15 minutes, and you can watch it on any sort of device and whenever you’ve got a few spare minutes.
