Becoming a mother opened my eyes to how frequently I would make comparisons between myself and other moms. I would think, “Wow. She is so organized!” and “I wish I could make everything look that easy.” I often felt like I wasn’t meeting the expectations I placed on myself, especially regarding Vinnie’s eczema.
