A version of this piece posted on Richmondmom.com in April, but I love it so much that I’m giving it an update and second showing because I could use the reminder.
Who hasn’t struggled with the thoughts and worries of motherhood culminating in the ever-present phrase: Am I a good mom?
How do we know we are doing it right? Whatever “it” is or isn’t or will be after newest research comes out.
In being the helpful person that I am, I created a simple checklist to help us moms (and dads) know once and for all.
If you answered yes to 4 of these questions, you are probably fine, but you could pick a 5th and do it to officially be in the club.
The good moms have a secret handshake — actually it’s more of a high-five with our right hand while doing the Heimlich Maneuver in our left arm and continuing to steer a grocery cart with a foot and knee combo.
It’s almost as awesome as most moms are.
