Well, hey there! I can see you all streaming over here after peeping me on the Today show. I just wanted to personally welcome you.
Good Enough Mother is the website borne of my book, Good Enough Mother; The Perfectly Imperfect book of Parenting. We have a staff of talented writers and talk about some edgy stuff. The one thing we agree on is that you don’t have to be perfect to be a great parent.
So, take some time, look around, join our Facebook page and then join the conversation.
We’re glad you’re here.
You can read more about me and how I got here, well—-> HERE. Life Lessons: ME! In 2014
But this is not a one-woman operation; there are several folks who make Good Enough Mother go.. Here’s a more on them:
Jackie Gailey is our blog coordinator. If Good Enough Mother were a train, she’d be wearing the conductor’s uniform.
