I was talking to a friend the other day and she was a little frazzled with all the pressures of being a mom. She has 2 kids and said:
Her: Nora, how do you do it?
Me: Do what?
Her: Raise 2 kids, but seem so put together. You never make any mistakes, your kids are good boys, you always seem to be so organized and calm.
Me: Really? That’s what you think.
Her: You just seem so PERFECT. Like you never screw up. Sometimes, I’m so tired I just can’t find time to clean the house, help the kids with homeowork, be a wife AND mother.
So, obviously her sleep deprivation has clouded her judgement and rendered her delusional. I am by no means perfect, nor do I strive for perfection. I just take it day by day and try to do the best for my kids.
So, if this is your idea of perfection, then I’m proud to say: I’M EFFIN PERFECT!
