Another Really Good Read

For those of you mothers who struggle with feelings of inadequacy, this is a must read. A teaser:

For one thing, I got trapped in compare/contrast mode. I read the blogs of other mothers who seemed to have it all together. Every article was a high-flying treatise on the glories of motherhood set off by gorgeous, photoshopped pictures of their immaculately groomed children cheerfully eating their homegrown vegetables on fine china. OK, I’m exaggerating a bit. But the point is, instead of feeling encouraged, I felt like a failure. No matter how hard I tried, I was never gonna measure up to that standard of excellence. Still, that didn’t stop me from trying.

It's well worth a few minutes of your time. Trust me.
