In good times and bad, I’ve always been a full-disclosure kind of person. Buff, my  husband of two decades, is more stoic; he believes we sort of soldier on, keeping these things to ourselves. That means he probably won’t love this post. Oh well.

Last week was sort of a difficult one for me for several reasons.

    Rene,

    This is spot on! One more I would add is to create a “braintrust”. Basically small group of professionals you can go to for support, strategies and opportunities. I absolutely love your blog. Love it!

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
