A MOM DAY STORY
I'm having one of those “mom” days. You know those days that you're trying to do a million things crammed into one day. When you know raking the leaves should have been done last weekend when it was beautiful outside and you had more time on your hands. Yes, one of those days that the kids have to argue about anything and everything. As I am writing this my son Chance goes to me, “Mommy, Cheyenne just said my middle name is toe.” My daughter Cheyenne starts singing… “Middle name's toe, middle name's toe… at the top of her lungs.” Chance yells, “My middle name is NOT toe!!!!!”
It's one of those days that I am searching through the refrigerator trying to find a cucumber for “mommy spa time” and remember my husband is allergic and my kids all hate cucumbers so I don't buy them on a regular basis and tomatoes won't work on my eye lids. 😐
It's one of those days that relaxing in a hot bath with a glass of wine and some candles lit, would be right up my alley, but remember I don't like wine and my bath pillow has a hole in it.
It's one of those days that I sit back… breathe a little bit, think a little bit, and remember how blessed I am to have a bath tub, own a refrigerator, and be ultimately blessed that I am a mom.
It's one of those days that I realize I am simply not the perfect mom. But to be honest with you, I wouldn't like being “the perfect mom” it's just not me. I try my ultimate best to be a really great mom but honestly I wouldn't even want my kids to think that I was a perfect mom. It would show them that I never mess up or that I never have a bad day. Moms make mistakes and have bad days, too. It's just how you recover from the mistake or how you handle the day in all, that sets an example for them. We always want to strive to be better as parents. It's only natural to want to give your kids your very best. Just don't forget to set some time a side for yourself too. 🙂
