Is Motherhood Making Me Crazy?

Is Motherhood Making Me Crazy?

I was watching my daily 5 minute dose of Bravo TV and the Shahs of Sunset was showing a newlywed couple in therapy. They were discussing how different their desired picture perfect life was from the reality of what was REALLY happening.
Most moms I know love to portray perfection. Perfect house, perfect kids, perfect life.

i believe however, perfection in motherhood is the enemy of enjoying it.Truthfully, the more ‘perfect’ I try to be the more I see the things that really matter slip out of reach.  I have learned the best thing is to become the best version OF YOURSELF. How do you do this though?

The life we imagined of being a great mom, being a pretty, healthy, happy wife, keeping a clean house and working to fulfill our own dreams and purpose is much, much harder than I thought it would be.  Then throw in a couple of tired, teething, screaming, potty training kids to the mix and that is when moms like me wonder “Am I doing this motherhood thing right? Is it supposed to be this tiring, frustrating and crazy at times? Does every other mom have it all together?”
