Mom Talk: Not Perfect


I never strive to be a "perfect mom'...in fact, the benchmark I aspire for is wading above water, just trying to keep these kids alive.  And a few weeks ago, an instance occurred that reminded me I am not the quintessential mom.  So to be frank, what I did was lock my kids in the car.  Keys and cell phone included.  In 85 degree weather.  In rush hour traffic on a busy street.  It was horrible. Mortifying. Panic spewed.  I won't go through the sordid details of how it happened, why it happened.  But I can thank my eldest prince for saving the day.  Fortunately, he was not strapped to his carseat.  So I guided him to find my keys and pop the rear door open - a mere 15 minutes of panic later.  So I write this post to share with other mothers. I juggle a life as a career woman, aspiring blogger, wife, and mom - but I do not consider myself the perfect mother.  I am just trying to keep it real and share the real.
