The I'm Not a Supermom....Agreement....


Since I am finally coming to terms with the fact that....even though I have aspirations...I am in NO way a Supermom....no sexy tights in my closet....(sorry Juice)


I have decided to make an agreement for myself.....to help me during those times....when I fall off the wagon....or whatever supermom's ride on....and need a reality mom....attitude adjustment!!!



1) I AGREE....that it is OK for my son to only say mama, dada, baba, nana and Die (Bye) at 16 months....


2) I AGREE....that I don't have to be in my pre-baby jeans....even though it irks me when I hear other moms at the park gush over their super sexy just had a baby body.....


3) I AGREE....that the house in no way needs to resemble one that lives in the Better Homes and Garden Magazine....These people have either A) no kids......or B) the kids are stuffed in the attic.


4) I AGREE...that dinner does not have to resemble the gourmet meal that The Barefoot Contessa made last night on Food Network.....Husband's not a big fan of Brie anyway...


5) I AGREE...that My Family and Friends will still be there tomorrow...if I decide to check out today....everyone needs a break....


6) I AGREE....that accepting help from others....in no way knocks my good mommy score down any notches.....really.....(Repeat) REALLY....very good!!!


7) I AGREE....(related to numero 1) ...that Pooh does NOT need to be the poster child for my Child can Read videos.....or have finished the Harry Potter Books by the age of 3....


8) I AGREE....to stop trying to fit into tights that don't fit......and understand I'm doing a Darn fine job in my sweats and jeans....



*** I feel Better Already....Don't you?

Here here indeed! Great post! And I agree with all those things too! My house is always a mess - the kids just have a way of touching everything in their sight! And I'm not fitting as best as I could in my pre-pregnancy clothes, and my youngest is 18 months old! And? I rarely cook! So there! I'm no supermom, but I think I'm a pretty good mom! And that's all that matters, right?

Amen, sistah! I just took a big, deep, cleansing breath and asked for help from my parents, with taking 3 of my 4 kids to 2 different schools next year. Everyone is on the same schedule, BUT AT DIFFERENT PLACES! So I had to ask for help, right? Doesn't mean I'm a horrible mother that I can't be in two places at the same time, right? The old me would have anguished over this...but after the arrival of number 4 this summer...the old me is no longer me.

Love this!

Is it also agreed that sometimes it's ok to let the baby cry and/or to even cry yourself?

Michaela said...

excellent post! sometimes I think that being in a military marriage and often solo parenting has made me reevaluate my expectations... for the better I think! I'm just trying to keep everyone alive and relatively well adjusted. Thats not asking so much is it?!
