Are You a Supermom or a Super Mom?

There has been a trend in women that has seemed to grow and snowball throughout the years. I suppose the temptation to be able to be the best at everything lies within all of us. However with the dawn of feminism a new sort of perfectionism reared it's head and it has permeated society with a vengeance. It is the 'supermom' mentality.

Supermom can do it all. She can bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan. She will be well respected and indispensable at work. In her smart business suit and heels she can still manage to chase down toddlers, cook gourmet meals, and keep a perfect house. Her children will be smart and well behaved.

She will simultaneously manage to get 4 kids to opposite corners of the city at the same time for their various practices and games. She will tirelessly volunteer at school whether it is room mother or PTA president…

Homeschooling to be completed, laundry (all of it is waiting), bake bread and something sweet, dishes, sweep and mop, clean the carpets and that doesn't include the general picking up that needs to be done. Still need to start preps for supper, too. Whew! I think I mentioned in a previous post that I…
