Perfectionist + Type A's: What Happens When You Try to be the Perfect Mom?

perfect mom, perfectionist, best mom, good enough mom

Don't try to be the perfect and best mom!

Instead, go into motherhood working on being more of your true-self.

We put so much emphasis on trying to provide the most perfect home, nutrition, safest and intellectually stimulating environment when really your future kids just want you to be you. Not 10lbs lighter you, not having-everything together you, and not living by studies/books you. Definitely not you trying to live someone else's version of perfect family life.

When you are spending time picking out the perfect stroller, don't forget to do the things that make you happy, take care of yourself, and be unapologetically you to prepare for baby.
