Mom Envy

Motherhood is the single most difficult job that I have ever had. I cannot imagine having responsibilities more pressing or urgent or important or vital than being charged with the obligation of the shaping and molding of another human being. It really is no wonder I take my perceived failures so darn personally.

I suppose, given the gravity of motherhood, it really is no wonder that I look to my contemporary, albeit geographically distant Mom’s and think to myself Wow, she really does a great job…I want to try harder.

Tonight, as I type this up…I am telling myself to try harder at giving myself a break.
