I am so excited to share an exclusive excerpt from author and fellow mom, Dianne Bright’s book titled “Mommy’s Hiding in The Treehouse–With A Glass of Merlot.”
“Mommy’s Hiding…” is a collection of 31 honest, relatable, and introspective essays about our casted role as MOM and how that role may affect us day to day.
Here’s a thought provoking excerpt from essay number 5 titled, “Take Off Your ‘Super-Mom Cape.'”
“As moms, we try way too hard to do it all. We wear an imaginary cape that says “Super-Mom.” …The super-mom cape makes us feel invincible, so we put up our guard and don’t let others into our home to see the dirty tile and the spills on the table from breakfast. The problem with wearing the cape is that it limits the depth of our relationships…”
To learn more about how your cape maybe getting in the way (as well as read up on the rest of Bright’s honest and relatable essays from “Mommy’s hiding…,”) head on over to Amazon and pick up a copy today.
