Book Excerpt: Reason #1 • I am a good mother! Cheers!

Excerpt from Must. Have. Wine. A Toast to Motherhood

The Good Mother

Does it make me a bad mom because I wish it were bedtime already?? Or at least time to cook dinner, so I can pour that glass of wine, hoping my husband keeps the kids entertained long enough for me to unwind, at least a little. Maybe this weekend I can get out for a bit.  I haven’t had a girls’ night in forever and all I want is to get away for a few hours. No one tugging on my pant leg, no “mommy this” or “mommy that”… just a few drinks, appetizers, and some adult conversation.

As much as we all want to be perfect and strive to be good mothers, we often feel as though we’re failing. A good mother wouldn’t fantasize about locking herself in her closet with a bottle of wine just to get some peace and quiet. A good mom wouldn’t count the minutes until nap-time, begging for a break from her children. A good mom wouldn’t dream of a getaway with her friends, desperate for some alone time away from her family. But the truth is–that’s exactly what good mothers think. Good moms deserve a break.
