To The Good Enough Mom
To: The Good Enough Mom.
Here’s the thing, when I bought these sandwich shape makers (or whatever the hell they’re called) I had the best intentions. As I hit the one-click buy button on Amazon, I thought to myself- I am going to be the best shape-sandwich-making mom ever!! I can post my kids awesome sandwiches on Pinterest and all will be good in the world.
So, I waited- still making plain square sandwiches until they were delivered. When they arrived, I couldn’t have been more excited!
I sent my son to school with a dolphin shaped sandwich!
I was the greatest mom ever!! But then I wasn’t. I was still the same mom that I was before I made that dolphin shaped sandwich!
So here I am getting rid of these. Why?
Because it’s a year later and I never used them again!! The reality is that I am still the same regular sandwich making mother.
Actually the truth is I don’t even make my kids lunch! His dad does!
Regardless of my sandwich making abilities- I am getting rid of these sandwich cutters knowing that I am still good enough!
I am good enough as a mother and I don’t need to make pinterest sandwiches to prove that.
So here’s to all the regular non-pinterest sandwich making mommies- you’re still good enough!
