I used to be an amazing mother. Really. That is, until I gave birth to my second child.
If you are a parent, I am guessing that your story is similar. But perhaps your number isn’t two?
This week, a story of a Cincinnati gorilla vs. a negligent mother topped the headlines, and I think it further perpetuates the notion that mothers, and parents in general, should be perfect. We shouldn’t make mistakes. And we certainly shouldn’t allow our children the opportunity to make mistakes.
Quite simply, I think the world has it all wrong.
