Great post you must go read

I just have to point you over to Wisdom Has Two Parts. This post just really did it for me today. The steady dripping of "shoulds" and the raised eyebrows (some imagined by me, some not) and the subtle pressure to affirm someone else's mothering by heeding her advice has really been getting to me lately. It helped to read that I'm not the only mommy who doesn't measure up:)

Shannon, I'm so glad that the post helped. It does feel better to know that we aren't the only ones that feel the pressure to be like other moms. I love the way you put it--affirming someone else's mothering by heeding her advice.

Thanks for the link. I'll let my sister know that her list helped you. It is helping her to talk to her friends about some of these issues too.
