That seems to be my lesson for today.

And I think, maybe...this time...this day...

I just may have passed.

I remembered the importance of SLOWING DOWN. Of being a mommy. Of baking cookies and allowing messiness. Of singing silly made-up songs and ignoring the piles of unfolded laundry. Of staying in pajamas way passed breakfast.
I called in sick to work (I AM sick, but rarely call in sick when I am), relinquished To-Do lists, let go of all the "shoulds" and "supposed toos" I have been holding on to and just WAS.
And well...I enjoyed myself and my day with Sonia...immensley. I enjoyed myself far more than I think I should have, yet felt no hint of guilt.

Today, I was just a mommy. Happy. Centered. Present...



Well, today...

I'll remember.

Perfect Mom...

Before I was a mom, I was THE. PERFECT. MOM.

Before I was a mom my children NEVER watched television.

They never ate any food that was not organic and definitely not food that was processed.

They never played with toys that were plastic and made noises...just wooden toys...that fostered imagination an facilitated development.

They never watched television or listened to music or ate anything with sugar.

And NOW...that I AM A MOM,my children have done ALL OF THESE THINGS.

I SO am far from being the PERFECT MOM.

Before I was a mom, I was the perfect mom.

Now I'm a mom...far from perfect.

I think I may have evolved.


That is how many Christmas gifts I have purchased so far.

Oh wait. This isn't Facebook?
