Photo Contest: Celebrating Imperfect Parenting
There’s a lot of pressure out there to be a perfect parent. To have the perfect sleeper, eater, and play-er all while pushing the perfect stroller. In reality, we’re all just doing what we can every day. Of course we want to do our best for our kids but we’re humans, not machines. In the world of baby caring where sleep is limited and tempers (both the toddler in your home and yours) run high, who needs the stress of trying to be a Perfect Mom?
Living rooms get messy. Dinner gets thrown together at the last second (and may include a microwave and or cereal bowl), and socks might not get changed but as long as baby is smiling and laughing through it all and sleeping (semi) soundly at night, haven’t you done a bang up job?
Next week marks the last week of Pregnancy Awareness Month. Let’s show first time moms-to be that motherhood can be laid back and FUN! Glossy magazines may present an image of parenting that is polished and all about the next trend…who has time for that?

“For me, my story is about my oldest son (just turned 3) we were in the super market waiting in line for our groceries when all of a suddent my son pipes up (out of nowhere) really loud: sh*t (yikes, I had no clue he even knew that world,lol) and I turned beat red but covered nicely when after he announce the s-bomb really loud that, oh ‘you want to sit? You want to sit down? This did help as everyone in line thought nothing of it after I announced he must be asking to sit down…haha!”
