Your not Super mom. Stop trying to be.

It is amazing how many people say to me “Wow you are super mom!  How do you do all of this?”

By the Grace of God.   Through Him who gives me all strength.  That is how I do it!

I am not trying to be super mom.  Nor do I want to be super mom.

I just want to be:

  • Loving mom – who loves her children no matter what
  • Organized mom-who can have an organized house, or at least try to have one!
  • Chef mom-make my children health meals.  I don’t care what it looks like, just that it is good, healthy and yummy.
  • Teaching mom-I want to give my kids the world, and I don’t even have to leave the house to do it!  But traveling is more fun!
  • Healthy mom-I want my kids to see me exercise and making good choices.  I want to be one “hip” grandma one day!
  • Wise mom-I want my kids to know they can talk to me about any and everything.  I want them to know that I do give good advice.
  • Cool mom-yea I want them and their friends to think I am cool (doesn’t every mom!)
  • Mean mom-Disicpling and training molds children for the future and if I get the title mean mom in the process I know it’s working!
  • Sinful mom-I want my kids to know I am not perfect.  I mess up and some days I am a mess.
  • God fearing mom-I have this most wonderful God who loves me even when I am not perfect.  I want my kids to know this.  That He sent his Son to die on the cross for me. For them. For you.

But I do not want to be super mom.

I have learned that I can not have a perfect house, a perfect home school room, a perfect packed lunch, a perfect meal, a perfect wardrobe….I am not perfect.

I don’t want to do it all!  To try to create the illusion that my family is perfect all the time.  We are not.  Some days are just hard, others are harder.  Raising a family in today’s world with God’s standards is plan hard, but worth it.  I am not super women.  I do not do these things to be super women.  I want to be like all the other moms, who are doing just what I am doing.  Loving our families and raising them up.  In hopes of becoming a grandma one day!

But thank you for the compliment, it does make me feel good to think someone thinks I am!

  1. I have no desire to be supermom. I just want balance somewhere. These days I can’t seem to find it! Running a company, homeschooling, dishes, laundry, writing. There aren’t enough of me to go around! Good reminder, though, to those trying to be something impossible. :-)
