Please Don't Call Me "Supermom"

Please don't call me Supermom. Here's why. If a superhero accomplishes something amazing, like getting out of bed and getting dressed and showing up,

even though she is depressed and anxious and feels like she's falling apart, people think, "well, yeah, she is a superhero, she kicks evil's ass for breakfast, so yeah, she showed up to whatever her kids needed to do today, with lunches made and sunscreen

sprayed. Of course she did. I mean, she's a freaking superhero."

But I am NOT.
