But here’s a secret in America there are no good mothers they simply don’t exist there are a thousand ways to fail this imperfect job. There are failurea of the heart and failures of the body.the woman who is unable to breastfeed is a failure. The woman who screama for an epidural is a failure . The woman who picks her child up late from teachers knows from teachers cutting glance shespecially a failure. The woman who shares her bed with her baby is a failure . The woman who steels herself from the cutting screams of her baby is a failure.they may all hang their heads in shame and guilt because they haven’t done it perfectly and motherhood is assumption of perfection .
I loved this from start to finish
