Parenting is messy, and moms fail. Yes, all of us, even those moms with the perfect, shiny lives on instagram who live in a spotless house that totally isn’t covered in a mix of toddler snot, crayon, and mashed graham crackers and drool (they should build houses out of that stuff, it’s rock hard).
So instead of giving yourself a hard time next time you make a mom mistake like forgetting to send your kid to school with lunch, remember: we’ve ALL been there. Being a mom is about 10% squishy hugs and adorableness, and the rest is all a hot mess. It’s okay.
