Welcome to Modern Motherhood

Guess which shot was submitted to preschool for the family tree display.

Take a peek behind the curtain and see what modern motherhood is really about – doing it all with mediocrity while excelling in one thing only – pretending like you’re the kind of wife and mother that others feel inadequate to in comparison… and failing.

Mama Tries Blog strives to make all mothers feel empowered, supported, and inspired through life’s accomplishments and utter failures. It’s time to destroy the Facebook highlight reel and show real life in all its absurd glory. Most moms know, some days, it’s either laugh at yourself or curl up into the fetal position and cry. And, frankly, it’s hard to drink a glass of wine like that.

Mama Tries Blog is the creation of Teresa Carlton, a wife and mother of two mischievous little girls who, with a little help from sauvignon blanc and sarcasm, has nearly mastered the art of appearing to have her life together. Her writing has been featured on Scary Mommy, Babble, HuffPost Comedy, Blunt Moms, and Sammiches and Psych Meds. Follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, if only to feel better about yourself in comparison.

  1. This is Mike from http://www.michaelblackston.com. I have a weekly life journal podcast I deliver from the road called, Road Noise – Life one mile at a time. I wanted to let you know that I featured your blog at the end of the latest episode. I’ve decided to do a review of positive things I run across and your blog is the first review ever of that segment. You’re welcome to listen to the whole thing if you wish, but if you want to jump right to your review, I begin talking about your blog at around the 29:15 mark. Here is the link to that latest episode:

    1. Michael, I am a crier by nature. And your podcast review just made me cry in the best way! Thank you so much! I feel like a musician who just heard her song on the radio for the first time! So glad you decided to keep the podcast going! Also, I can’t wait until my girls are old enough to get into local theater programs! Thank you again!
