Are You A Garbage Mom?

You got: Relax, you're doing a great job!

Mama, chill. You’re doing great. Maybe you’re trying to be perfect because your parents were great and had everything under control*, so why can’t you? Maybe you’re trying to be perfect because your parents were terrible, and you’ve vowed to break the cycle. Either way, it’s hard, and you're doing better than you think.

(*They didn’t, though. They were probably just like you: winging it and spending a lot of energy making it look easier than it is.)

You got: Relax, you're doing a great job!

You’re a free spirit and committed to doing things your way and other parents can be judgmental AF. You are determined to present a chill, positive influence and that’s a lot harder than everyone thinks, partially because most of the time you make it look easier than you think you do. Motherhood is often hard, chaotic, and weird and you (clap) are (clap) killing (clap) it (clap).

Girl, you do not give a fuuuuuuuck. You are raising your kids your way, and you’ve relaxed into the chaos of it all. News flash: other parents find it disturbing or threatening that you’re not doing things the “right” way but you ARE doing it the right way. There is not a person alive who would do a better job raising your kid(s). Motherhood is chaotic and crazy, and you’re doing a great job.

If your first thought when you wake up is sometimes, “Oh god how will I make it through today,” not only are you not alone, that is EVERY mom’s experience. In fact there are two types of moms: Those who are occasionally/often overwhelmed by the chaos of it all, and those who pretend they’re not but are. Sure, this is a lot harder than you thought it was going to be slash how everyone told you it was gonna be, but you are doing your best and that’s all anyone can do. You’re doing a great job.
