A Perfect Mom

Another year is

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!!"

I should probably add a line that says a perfect mom realizes a perfect home is one decorated by her children daily. :P
