The Inner Goddess

The “Good Mother”

What does a “good” mother look like?  A “good” mother is a nurturer at all times.  A “good” mother doesn’t grieve for the loss of her flat belly, her perky breasts, her sex drive, her sex appeal, her time to pursue her passions etc.

Well, screw the “good” mother label. We certainly don’t fit it (well, Amy *thinks* she does but Ilana knows better).  We’ll tell you what we think a “good” mother actually looks like.

A “good” mother is real. A good mother is raw. A good mother is tired and drawn and sometimes yells at her spouse and her children.  A good mother understands her value. She understands that giving birth does not erase her identity and does not limit her. A good mother understands that she still exists, that she still has needs and desires and wants and passions.  And that is ok, that is necessary.
