Great Freebie to Stop the #MomFail days

Freebie-Mom-Fails

I recently watched the movie Mom’s Night Out.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a mom who had always dreamed of being a wife and mom and now isn’t feeling so good about herself.  I have to say it was one of the top movies I have seen in a long time and I think it’s because I could totally relate to it, as I think most mom’s can.

In the movie, her house had become such a mess with kids drawing on the walls, toys all over, dishes everywhere and even one kids head getting stuck in a toilet seat.  She felt so discouraged and bad about herself that she literally holed up in a closet and watched a video of baby eagles hatching.

Have you had a day (or days) like that?  I know I have!!! Many of them actually.

We all want to be perfect, but many days we think of ourselves as pathetic homemakers that deserve an F minus in motherhood.

Instead of locking yourself in a closet, you may snap a shot of your depressing laundry pile after the kids go to bed and share it on Instagram with a self-deprecating comment and the hashtag #momfail. It’s only meant as a joke, of course, but deep down it feels a little truer than you wish it did.

If this sounds even remotely familiar, you need to know two things:

  1. You are not alone. Most of us feel this way far more than we ever admit.
  2. All the ways you failed?? How awful you did today or last week? It’s just not true. You’re doing better than you think.

This is why I am so excited to point you in the direction of this Brand new FREE video series created by two moms who have lived their fair share of #momfail days.

Stephanie and Beth are not only popular bloggers, but they’re also moms in the trenches. They’ve got 8 kids and almost 20 years of mothering experience between them.

They also understand and have the deepest compassion for moms who are working their tails off, but still hitting the pillow at night with a heavy heart and tear-stained face, because they feel like they’re failing at one of the most important things they’ll ever do in their lives.

And so they’ve put together an honest, candid and incredibly encouraging series of three videos just for moms. It’s called “The Truth About #MomFail Culture: 10 Things You Need to Hear on the Hard Days”.

It won’t solve all your problems, and much as they wish they could, they can’t reach through the computer and fold that pile’o’laundry for you. But we can all benefit from a fresh perspective and encouragement from someone who really gets it.

Each video is short – around 10 minutes, and you can watch it on any sort of device and whenever you’ve got a few spare minutes.

To watch the video series, just click this link and enter your name and email to sign up. You’ll get access to the first video today, and then one per day after that.
