1st post by one clever mama
We don't want you to get the wrong idea. We actually aren't any more clever than most mamas out there, but we do believe that a lot of what we have learned along the way of this journey called motherhood entitles us to the adjective 'clever'. Most moms learn how to be clever out of sheer neccessity and this is our little spot to share, vent and generally be moms together. What is it that many people say, "you have to pass a test to get a drivers licence, but there's no requirement to become a parent" so true, so true. It's a learn as you go experience. You do the best you can with what you know. Jill (my partner in crime here) and I have shared a lot together thus far (though we are doing so several provinces away from each other). I think you need someone (or several someones) to be a mom with. To get hints and tips, to share frustrations and aggrivations and to know that you aren't the only one going through whatever it is you happen to be going through at the moment. That's where this Clever Mamas idea came about. It's been a process to get it here, but we are glad that it is here. We don't by any means claim to know it all (goodness knows you don't need someone like that in your life), in fact part of us knowing that we're doing okay is the fact that we can admit that we aren't perfect. This is just our time, mom time.
