If you feel you are failing as a mom.. GOOD!

I think every mom (and dad) at some point has looked at the house in disarray, heard the kids crying, been overwhelmed by a monstrous to do list, and felt they were in some way failing as a parent.

This article may upset and possibly offend some people. Before I begin please understand that is NOT my intent at all.

I do not want to upset or hurt anyon
