Breaking the Silence

I've had a moment (about 3 months now) where I just couldn't post anything.  I guess I've been feeling like not such a great mom so how could I write about something I was failing at.  I also was comparing myself to other amazing women and mothers out their and I felt like I was falling short.  I'm not feeling that much better but I've realized I've missed the emotional outlet that writing about parenting is for me.  I'm not a perfect mom by any means.  The truth is I'm struggling to be a good mom and as I find something I think may work for the moment I want to exclaim it so maybe it may help someone just like me.
Thanks for reading and I hope you can find some gems that may help you and I am resolved to find my voice again and write about what I love, Motherhood.


  1. Heather this post surprises me because you are a GREAT mother! If it makes you feel better, I think every mom goes through times of not feeling "up to par" with motherhood. You are fabulous!

  2. I am sorry you have been feeling this way. I agree with Sandra, you are a great mom! I hope blogging helps you continue to get on track and back to feeling confident.

  3. We all compare our failures against everyone else's successes. I know you're a wonderful mother, give yourself a break and quit trying to be a perfect parent. We just need to do the best we can with our unique talents and situation. Thankfully we get to try again tomorrow!

  4. I didn't mean for this to be a pity party, I apologize, after I read what I wrote today I realized how negative it sounds. My husband read it last night and felt terrible. So I'm sorry to worry you all, I'm not depressed but just couldn't find my voice through it all. The starting of school with three going full time--helping with homework, doing three preschool groups a week, supervising music therapy students, and starting a new class on Friday's I think I just bit off more then I could chew. It still is hard to balance it all but it's getting easier.
    Thanks for all these nice comments though, you are all awesome and I look up to you as wonderful mothers. I think you all hit it on the head, we all go through times of feeling inadequate. And it's easy to compare our weakness to others strengths. So I'm working to not do this anymore and just be my best self.


I appreciate your comments!
