Spoken by a mom whose been there, Lisa-Jo Baker’s The Tired Mother’s Creed is a shot of relief for those days when we’re running on empty. Her list of 20 maxims remind us to celebrate our season of life, judge others and ourselves kindly, and remember our priorities. Some of our favorites are:
1. I shall not judge my house, my kid’s summer activities or my crafting skills by Pinterest’s standards.
8. I shall remind myself that perfect is simply a street sign at the intersection of impossible and frustration in Never Never land.
14. I pray God I shall never be too proud, angry or stubborn to ask for my children’s forgiveness.
19. I shall always make time to encourage new moms.
