I am not a playful mom - I'll wrestle and be silly for a little bit, but I need my space after a while.
I AM a mom that loves to cook and bake with you.
I AM a mom that loses my cool and yells sometimes. I am also a mom that apologizes for my bouts of frustration and gives lots of long hugs and kisses after time-outs.
I AM a mom who will never refuse a hug, and never lets go until you do -- even if that requires carrying you around when you're way too big to be held.
I am not a build-legos-with-you kind of mom. But I'll do it for a hot minute because I want you to be happy.
I am a strict mom. Like, no technology until you're 50.
I am not a laid back mom -- I like order and calm.
I AM a crafty mom who doesn't mind playdoh messes and glue -- but I draw the line at glitter.
I AM a mom who will lay in bed and be silly at bedtime, because that's our time to connect and talk about the day.
I AM a mom who will sing you the same song for 6 months straight, every night, because you love it.
I AM a mom who will check on you every night before I go to bed. I am not the mom who makes a separate meal but I am the mom that allows treats. I am not the mom who goes all out for birthdays but I am the mom that goes buck wild all December-long. I’m not the mom who will sleep in your bed with you, but I am the mom who will insist you’re sleeping right beside me when you’re sick.
