“The most important thing she’d learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.”

    Amen! Because the media make us think, deep down, that we really OUGHT to be perfect. And if we aren’t perfect, we aren’t trying enough. I think my middle name is “guilt.” I remember holding my son when he was newborn and thinking, “here is a brand new little person that I haven’t even screwed up yet!”
    And yet, somehow, my children love me, they understand when I screw up, the accept the “I’m sorry”s and believe me when I say I will try hard to do better. In seeing me make mistakes, maybe they won’t think they have to be perfect, either.
