It’s too easy for us as mothers to feel that we need to be perfect. But that isn’t possible or even the best thing. Be sure to read “Enjoy Being a Good-Enough Mother!” to see why a “perfect” mother isn’t actually what we should want to be.
I love the quote “OF COURSE I’d like to be the ideal mother. But I’m too busy raising children.” From the comic strip The Family Circus by Bil Keane.
“The Ideal Mother” Word-Art Freebie
I created a word art freebie based on the Bil Keane Family Circus quote “OF COURSE I’d like to be the ideal mother. But I’m too busy raising children.”
