The Kind Of Mother I’ll Never Be

I have never claimed to be perfect. I am far from it. So this Mother’s Day, I figured I’d celebrate my in a bass-akwards way of my own. That’s right, let’s talk about the The Kind of Mother I’ll never be.

I will never be the kind of mother who:

  • Doesn’t loose her temper occasionally
  • Cuts her daughters bangs perfectly straight every time (sorry minime)
  • Gets dinner on the table on time every night.
  • Who has never had to ask herself: “this is granola? or dried boogers?”
  • Doesn’t tell her own kids “your mother jokes”. (seriously, ask le hubs)

I will never be the kind of mother who:

  • Can get the whites extra white no matter how much bleach I pour on those muthas.
  • Shows up to every single school meeting and or happening.
  • Always has a clean house.
  • Never feeds the kids cereal at breakfast because I don’t feel like cooking.
  • Never says anything inappropriate in front of her children (that crap happens sometimes)


But despite all that (and a lot more I’m sure) – I don’t think I’m all that bad.

I am the kind of mother who:

  • Loves her children unconditionally
  • Is able to work hard and provide all their needs (and some of their wants).
  • Who thinks that she’s done an OK job of them so far!

And I am certainly the kind of mother who feels like this on days I can manage to get work done, my kids fed, to games and or practice, homework done, dishes cleaned (mostly), workout done,  groceries bought, and lived to see another day. Boom.
