It’s like a badge of honor to be busy. We associate being busy with having a fulfilled life and always doing something. But is it really? Are we just over-stressing ourselves?

I interviewed my husband to see his take on feeling like he needs to be the perfect father. My husband’s name is Morgan and we have been together 16 years and married 11 years. We have 3 children together.

I use to be that mom

I use to be that mom

I use to be that mom that judged other mothers. I would comment about how they were raising their children, what they were wearing or what they feed their kids. I would smile and be nice to their faces and then turn around and talk about what bad mothers they were being because of something they did.
