The Imperfect Mom:

Candid Confessions of Mothers Living in the Real World

edited by Therese J. Borchard ’94M.A. (Broadway Books)


Writers tell their tales of mommy mishaps from the frightening to the funny in this collection of 36 essays.

The editor says she hopes the diverse essays here “will make moms everywhere breathe a sigh of relief and relinquish their pursuit of perfection. Because there is no such thing as a perfect mom.”
