Imperfect Perfection: How This Modern Mom Took it Back

...aka Gwyneth Paltrow is the Mythical unicorn of motherhood

Perfect Mom

The other day a friend posted a New York Post article on her Facebook page with the headline, Modern moms looking for perfection in all the wrong places.

Naturally, it caught my eye.

These so-called "perfect moms," where are they? I can’t say I know any.

Don't Waste Your Money Buying These 5 Baby Products

Plus, The 5 Products To Buy That Will Actually Get Used

by: Tanya Enberg

With the arrival of a baby, you can expect to receive mountain loads of teeny, tiny onesies and seemingly nifty gadgets that too often end up collecting dust. When I was expecting our son almost two years ago now, my heart melted over the many cute little things kindly given to us from friends and family, but as time moved on, I realized how unnecessary many of these baby goodies proved to be. Some of them were hardly used, others remained unused.

Run for Cover—Elmo Is In The House

INSUFFERABLE, SCRUFFY, AND WHAT'S WITH THAT HORRIBLE HIGH-PITCHED GIGGLE? SIGH . . . THE ELMO YEARS HAVE ARRIVED

The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

After spending years pulling her hair out writing for national newspapers, magazines and online publications, journalist Tanya Enberg is now pulling her hair for an entirely different reason — trying to learn the rather chaotic rhythms of parenting.

When Tanya and her hubby were planning to start a family, she had no idea just how difficult the parenthood job would be, or how deliriously in love she would fall with their newborn squish. The intensity of joy that arrived with motherhood is incredible, mind boggling and, yes, unexpected.

Fact: Until her son’s birth, Tanya had only ever changed one diaper, and that was on a plastic doll in pre-natal class and still she found it very, very challenging. Now, she can almost change diapers in her sleep and sometimes has.

Oh, and she’s since learned all about onesies (and secretly wishes she could get away with wearing one), been peed on many, many times and has expertly mastered the art of the afternoon nap.

As a lifelong travel junkie, Tanya is the co-founder of the website ChicSavvyTravels.com who hopes their little guy will also be bitten by the jet setting bug.
