-Have you ever fallen into the trap of being able to believe you are a good mom if your kids get could grades? The problem with that plan is then if your kids don’t get good grades (which is completely possible and mostly out of your control) then you no longer have permission from yourself to believe you’re a good mom… In today’s episode I explain my cupcake analogy in detail with tons of examples to help you understand the power of taking care of our own needs and remembering that everything else (aka your wants) is frosting. In case you were wondering, your kids getting good grades is just frosting and has nothing to do with if you are a good mom or not. Such good news!
