Why is it we moms.......

Why is it that we moms are always comparing our selves to other moms or find our selves competing with other moms? I think we all have days were we feel like we are on top of things, but most days we all spend just trying to keep up. I was talking with a friend on the phone today and made the comment that I often feel like a failure as a mom or like I am not doing all the things I should be. Thanks to the wonderful world of blogging we are able to peak into other peoples homes and see how there life's work-or how we think the work. We think omg she is super mom, she has it together-why cant I do that........

Every time I feel like I am on top of things or might be getting ahead I find myself 10 steps behind again. Since Christmas and Brad being off for almost 2 weeks, I feel like I cant get it back together. I feel like my house is a wreak ALL the time, like I am not playing with my kids enough or teaching them enough. I feel so behind on my duties as a wife-laundry, cooking, ironing. There are days that my husband calls to say he is on his way home and I look down to realize that me and the boys are all still in our pj's and I have not even brushed my teeth for the day let alone my hair. I think that many of us stay as home moms find our selves in the same situation weather we want to tell the world about it or not.

I want to get it back together and get on top of my game again-I hate being disorganized so much and having things so out of control around here. So I am going to start trying to take it one thing at a time and tackle things again. I am going to get out my pen and paper and make my handy dandy notebook and start my daily to-do list again. But most of all I am going to try not to compair myself to other moms who I think have it together.

Never compare yourself to others.

I feel ya girl. I do the exact same thing. I often feel so insecure because I feel like I'm not good enough, not pretty enough, not outgoing enough...the list goes on and on. But, I just read Beth Moore's book So Long, Insecurity and I'm happy to say I feel more free now than ever before. Highly recommend the book. It will change your life! I'm so glad you're a part of our MOPS group! I'd love to get to know you better. Can you come to our game night next week? Just know you're not alone. :)
