I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day!! Today isn’t so much about the gifts as much as it is about being able to take the time to just enjoy and cherish your families today — and put work and other things aside.
Remember that you ARE the greatest mom there is. Your children all love you for the mom you are. You are not perfect. You will make mistakes, but the things your kids remember will always trump that.
Every year, my kids fill out little stories about their mom. This year, some of them they shared were:
“My mom is beautiful”
“My mom make cookies for me”
“I love it when my mom plays with me”
“My mom is the best when she snuggles me”
So, even though I know I am FAR from perfect, may yell, lack patience sometimes and may not be the mom I think I need to be; To my kids, I am the perfect mom. And so are you!
