Playing house

Sunday, June 7, 2009

Sometimes I do not feel like a grown-up. Especially around other moms. I feel like I am so much younger- and not good younger like irresponsible immature younger.
Some of the moms at preschool are so much more 'together' than I am and seem like 'real' moms. I feel sometimes like I am just pretending- playing a role.

Does anyone else ever feel like that? I am explaining this very poorly- forgive me- I may edit this later for clarification.

The point is I never feel like I am a grown-up just a kid playing dress up--- ugh. No idea how to say what I want to say

I'm a lot older than you and I still feel like an imposter sometimes. Just keep plugging along, do the best you can, learn from your mistakes, read, and consult with friends you trust.

Yeah, i think all of us feel that way sometimes.What's the old saying "fake it till you make it". I definitely have that goin' on.

Overall most days I am now feeling pretty confident in my mothering skills, but I am certainly not one of those put together women who seem to pull everything off without a hitch.

I totally feel like I'm pretending ALL the time! Since I'm only a few months older than you, i too, feel like every other mother is years older than I am. I have several mom friends whose kids are the same age as mine but they are a decade older than me. Everytime I'm out w/ the kids, I keep waiting for someone to ask if I'm babysitting.

I know exactly how you feel. I always feel this way. I am not put together and never have been and feel as though I missed the boat on how to become a real mom and not just feel like a kid with a kid.
