Let’s get real for a moment. We all would love to be the perfect parent but raising kids gets down right messy. You are either in the trenches in the muck or watching from afar.
There was a time when I thought I was the perfect mom and perfect wife; working from home running a successful company with my husband as a stay-at-home dad. I volunteered at Sunday school, baked for school bake sales, went on great vacations – life was good.
I was positive everyone was happy – a smiling family in color-coordinated outfits pictures hung throughout the house to prove it. Truth be told, I was completely exhausted. I was running on little to no sleep and way too much coffee but it was okay – I had a happy thriving family whom loved me and felt loved so it was worth it. Right?
I could not have been more wrong.
