Confessions of a True Life Slacker Mom

 Weekly Read | Confessions of a Real Life Slacker Mom 

Excerpt: (Full Column linked above).
there is a trend among “Mommy Bloggers” and the media in general to portray parenthood as “the hardest job you’ll ever have.” Hardest? Really? Isn’t that a bit much? I’ve not gone to war, mined coal or even pumped out a middling sized septic tank but I bet such tasks are pretty grueling.

Challenging? Absolutely. Exhausting? You bet. Still, I find it difficult to digest that parenting is the hardest job I’ve personally ever had. The most important, certainly, but I’ve definitely had less pleasant work environments. In parenting I laugh a lot and the company is infinitely better.

Clearly, I must be doing it wrong.

since you feel this way, it means you are doing it RIGHT and those of us who say it is HARD were doing it wrong. at 67 i can look back and see things i did wrong but it is to late.
