If I were...

So you know those moms that do it all? They have a meticulous house, they DIY everything, they always serve perfectly plated, well balanced food to their family; and they provide sensory type activities for their 8 children, oh and they blog about it too. They are awesome. So... I often say "If I were awesome, then I would ..." fill in the blank. Now before you think that I'm saying I'm not awesome, let me clarify. Here's how I see it: I'm doing the best I can when it comes to mommyhood. Therefore I'm a good mom, and good mom's are awesome.

Ok, here's the point of this post:

One day I was hanging out with a friend, who happens to also be a new mom. We were talking about gardening, or canning, or baking bread... ya know, one of those things that someday maybe I'll do... (I don't remember what it was that we were talking about...) But I said "If I were..." and I tried to think of something to say "better than I am... more organized..." as I was coming up with something to say, my friend filled in my blank "Super-human?" YES! That's the thought I was looking for. At this stage in my life, there's not much more I can do besides what I'm doing, but... someday, in a perfect world, *if I were super-human*, then I would like to do all the things that I'm not doing.

So guess what I'm going to say instead of awesome? Yep, you guessed it... super human.

  1. You want to know the secret? Those "super-human" moms don't exsist. We all do something better than everyone else. And many of us do many things very well. But don't fall into the trap of thinking a certain beautiful woman has it all. It's unfair to both of you. :)
