Del Alma: No Way to Be a Perfect Mother

Submitted by on September 14, 2010 – 7:40 amOne Comment

“There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one”

– Jill Churchill

Today’s del alma is inspired by this week’s parenting essays on the Tiki Tiki.

“Motherhood brings as much joy as ever, but it still brings boredom, exhaustion, and sorrow too. Nothing else ever will make you as happy or as sad, as proud or as tired, for nothing is quite as hard as helping a person develop his own individuality especially while you struggle to keep your own.” — Marguerite Kelly and Elia Parsons.

“The story of a mother’s life: Trapped between a scream and a hug.” — Cathy Guisewite.

“I want to have children, but my friends scare me. One of my friends told me she was in labor for 36 hours. I don’t even want to do anything that feels good for 36 hours.” — Rita Rudner.

“The joys of motherhood are never fully experienced until the children are in bed.” -- Author Unknown.

“It will be gone before you know it. The fingerprints on the wall appear higher and higher. Then suddenly they disappear.” — Dorothy Evslin.
