So, I’ve just watched Bad Moms and wanted to give it a standing ovation (despite it’s sometimes saccharine sweet American plot “twists”). I received a mail today from another mother who said that she loves the blog, but that sometimes my posts make her feel like she doesn’t have her “shit sorted.” Yes, I said SHIT. And mine is OFTEN not sorted 🙂 Ladies (and I assume it’s mostly moms reading this, so my humble apologies if you have more testosterone than my average reader), let’s NOT kid ourselves.
Motherhood is NOT for sissies. It’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions – constantly questioning your own judgment, constantly being subjected to others’ judgment and feeling inadequate. BUT, it’s also the most (and I wish I could BOLD type, Italic and underline MOST … MOST !!!!)
amazing thing you could ever do. I thank God every day for the miracle of being able to bring forth a life and raise a little person (or 2 or 3 or 4 in my sister-in-law’s case).
I also thank God for a glass of wine (or 2 or 3 or 4 in my own case at the end of a particularly grueling suicide hour – in which case, I’ll pump and dump ,of course!) and for the fact that I have a wonderful sisterhood of mom-friends. So… just because I’m curious as to who my actual blog readers are, I’d like to invite you and 3 of your besties to a movie at the V&A Waterfront and then drinks on me and a good chat. If you’re in Jozi or Durban, we’ll make a plan too. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me the best and worst thing about being a mom. Easy enough? Come on, let it out and come have fun. Let’s all be “Bad Moms” together!
Love and Light,
