I certainly did not return from the beach yesterday and declare, "Eh, I don't have the energy to make rice cereal... hey, hand me a beer, will you?"
It must have been Chloe's other mother.
This is going to be a fun exercise for me each week because I recently took a "What Kind of Mother Are You?" quiz and learned that I am "The Executive Mother." One of the struggles it lists is this one:
Self-criticism. Intensely committed and wanting to be equally competent at work and family, the ENTJ mother struggles to live up to her "superhuman" expectations for herself. She may find herself constantly assessing her performance, confident about what she did well but even more self-critical when she thinks she should have done more.
This is DEFINITELY one of the things I struggle with as a mother, as a wife, as an employee, as everything. So, tune in each Monday and watch me accept my imperfections with humor instead of with hand-wrenching.
Mommy kept scooting me back from the screen, but come on! This is war!!
At one point in the evening, Mommy noticed that I was getting sleepy, so she tried to put me in my bassinet with Pooh and my paci. I cried until she put me back in my walker. That will teach Mommy! Although, I guess she wasn't far off...
