Hi. I’m Heidi.
I’d like to officially welcome you home if you’ve ever thought of yourself as a recovering perfectionist who always thinks they can do better, be more, and make a bigger cannon ball splash in this thing called life.

Feels like I am reading about myself!! I am a goody-goody through and through, but this parenting thing has at times made me laugh hysterically and at others brought me to my knees. I want to be “that mom” but I can’t figure out how “that mom” does it! I have lost mother-of-the-year every year, usually to “that mom”! You crack me up with your stories in writing and on air! Maybe “that mom” is the one who can laugh at herself and tell her kids she isn’t so perfect!
Welcome to the club, Pam. We have jackets. But those jackets have zippers that don’t work because none of us have the time/energy/patience/know-how to sew. Thanks for commenting. Your words made me smile. 🙂
