Another year is beginning....today.
I am looking forward to another year of Hearts at Home in March! This year's theme is 'No More Perfect Moms'. I understand the idea behind that, but here are my thoughts about that.
A Perfect Mom
A perfect mom
is able to jump out of bed in a single bound when she hears a crash downstairs
knows that a quiet house is not a good sign
can feel as defeated as her daughter over algebra homework
cries with her children when someone hurts their feelings
yells at the careless driver on the road for endangering the lives of her precious cargo
successfully hides a stash of chocolate in her room because it's not good for the kids
knows just when to put the kids down for a nap so she can enjoy her favorite show
provides a courtesy to her children in the restaurant when she offers a special trip to the restroom
gets tired of driving to the orthodontist, school dances, play dates, and sporting events yet does them anyway
forgets to wash that special outfit for school the next day
invades her child's Facebook account and may or may not post a sweet message about Mom on their page
tags pictures of her children on Facebook doing 'interesting' things
lets her 5 year old pick her clothes and do her own hair before taking her out in public
knows when to admit she's wrong to her children
realizes how quickly her children are growing up
gives out lots of hugs, kisses, and 'I love you's' even when they're not wanted
knows this job was assigned to her by God, and is easier with His help
Therefore I declare, "I AM A PERFECT MOM!!"
