While we aren't supermom, nor were we meant to be, our kids are happy, fed and healthy. Who cares if the laundry is pile up, as long as the kids have clean clothes to wear. So what the dishes aren't all done, the kids are fed. Who cares if dinner isn't done, that's why there is take out and delivery! Or even have a do it yourself kind of night where everyone fends for themself. You are not the only mom who has done that (can I get an AMEN)!
We all feel like we aren't living up to some standard that we set for ourselves. But, do you realize how unrealistic that standard may be? Yea, I said it. We set standards that we may not be able to reach ourselves. We set standards that movies and magazines has put in our mind as the perfect mother. Well I'm sorry, Mrs. Brady was just a TV character. No one is that perfect. Most of us are probably closer to Roseanne or Peg Bundy than we are Mrs. Brady.
But its ok. Our kids still love us no matter what, and even if there are struggles they will learn and grow from it. If they are old enough to understand, then teach them how to avoid the situation, or how to come out of it stronger.
And lets be realistic, if you think about it, you probably are just like your mother, or going through similar issues that she may have went through. The struggles are always the same, just each generation experiences them differently.
All this post is leading up to is this.....
I saw an inspirational comedy the other day. Yes, inspirational and comedy in the SAME sentence. I had the chance to preview the movie Moms' Night Out. Its actually a really funny movie. Some familiar faces in it. It was inspirational without shoving it down your throat, and I was laughing so hard my belly hurt and I could no longer hold my bladder (thank God it was the end of the movie by then)! The trailer is below:

Let me tell you, this movie is crazy funny. The lead is just like us. She has everything she wanted - a husband, a great house, and kids, but just isn't happy. She feels like a failure, so she goes and plans a moms night out to get out of her rut. Let the hilarity ensue! I promise its a good watch. Check it out on May 9, 2014 (which happens to be Mothers Day weekend).
So, moral of the story, you aren't alone. You aren't a failure. Your husband and kids love you no matter what you think. <3 a="" and="" eep="" friends="" head="" let="" loose="" moms="" nbsp="" night="" out="" p="" plan="" some="" up="" with="" your="">
