Good Mums......

I found this post on a blog and it struck me. I had a chuckle at the things that we quite often as Mums tell ourselves we need to do, in order to be a "good mum". An interesting thought from the blog My Many Coloured Days. If you are a mum....enjoy this knowing that you are amazing. Your kids love you and we aren't perfect, but we do our best and that is all our kids ever ask for! Bless you all for doing the best and hardest job on the planet!

The "Good Mum Rule Book"
What? You haven't read it? Well, where the heck have you been hiding? In case you were wondering:

Good moms make their kids a school lunch every day.
Good moms go to story hour every week.
Good moms play with their kids all day.
Good moms put themselves last.
Good moms serve a balanced meal at every meal.
Good moms are the first to rise and last to go to bed.
Good moms have taught their children to read and write BEFORE they get to Kindergarten.
Good moms have the playdates at THEIR homes.
Good moms don't need breaks.
Good moms don't get sick.
Good moms' kids never act up.
Good moms never run late.
Good moms never freak out.
Good moms' kids are always well matched, their clothes are never holey, and they never have messy faces.
Good moms' homes are always clean and tidy.
Good moms don't let their kids watch television.

Just a few of the myths I let infiltrate my confidence as a mother. I know that there are some moms out there who are able to follow some of these rules, easily perhaps. Kudos to them. But they are the areas I find challenging.
What unrealistic rules are in your "Good Mom Rule Book"?
