I think it is important not to draw any particular conclusions about FM’s descriptions and demeanour. We really have no idea of the person she is. And we also cannot be certain as to how we would act in a similar scenario, let alone somebody we do not know who has a completely different background and history to ourselves. She may actually have been a fabulously organised mother. Or she may have felt the need to portray such an image.. lots of parents do (just look at all the unrealistic portrayals of family life on social media!), but it doesn’t necessarily mean anything sinister. IMO
I agree with you. It still fits within normal behaviour to me. Some mums just always talk like this, whereas I'm rather self deprecating and openly discuss my parenting fails.
One friend of mine is the perfect mother. She is super organised, makes story boards, photo books, very dedicated, instaperfect type. She is lovely but she only ever self promotes. But as she's a super close friend I know how deeply insecure she is and I suspect that's why my friend self promotes like she does.
I imagine it wouldn't be uncommon for a FM to feel insecure and perhaps over compensate.
