I recently stumbled upon* the most amazing article. It was written by Anna Quindlen and published in Newsweek back in 2005 but is still so, so relevant. If you are a parent, or you want to be one, you HAVE to read it. It’s all about the recent emphasis on being the perfect do-it-all mom and how that is not actually what kids need or want. I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself to be perfect, especially in my mothering, and this article both opened my eyes a bit wider to reality and also made me breathe a heavy sigh of relief. Maybe life really is about having fun.
