Wanted: Real Moms

I don’t know how else to say it other than – I want a group of real moms! I want to have a group of women who gets together over coffee or wine and talks about real issues.  The hard stuff.  The stuff that we’re not supposed to talk about.  The stuff that we deal with every single day.

I want a group of moms who aren’t afraid to admit that parenting is not all sunshines and rainbows.  That some days it sucks.  That some days you have no idea what you’re doing and you wonder how in the hell you got yourself into this.

I want a group of moms who aren’t vying for Mother of the Year.  Who don’t put on this mask that their children are always well behaved and their house always clean.  I don’t care if you are 20 or 60; if your kids are 3 or 30; if you have one child or 10.  I just want real.  I want authentic.  I want honesty.  

I want a group of women who can talk about issues and offer advice without judging. Who can listen. Whether they are going through a certain obstacle or will be.  Or if they’ve dodged that bullet but are experiencing rapid fire from another direction.

I want a group of women who can cry.  Who can laugh.  Who can open up.  Not just discuss a book or dvd or study questions, but who can discuss life, the trenches, the milestones, the hardships, the joy.

I want a group of moms who I can call up on the third day of Christmas break and say “HELP!” and they know.  They understand.  Because they wanted to scream that too.
