Congratulations, You’re a mom!
As such, you must now be a brave, compassionate, giving, last, elegant, distinguished, beautiful, creative, fun, generous, fierce, hardworking, honest, inspirational, nurturing, reliable, understanding, wise, prepared, confident, selfless, passionate, spontaneous and inspirational Commanding General of your own Army whom are expected to outperform to exponential measure least you be kicked off the “good mom” list as a failure.
Raise your hand if you think this is impossible! In this space, we talk raw, real, vulnerable, transparent truths. Not excusing complacency but also not judging for human emotions or mistakes. Nothing fake either. Ever. People need people. Moms need moms.

All of the posts on Glitter My Chaos are transparent, written by me, Kerri, from the purest place in my heart intended to help, inspire and heal others. Learn more about me here.
