I think I may be the only person I know who doesn't blog. The thought had never really crossed my mind until very recently. The hilarity that ensues in my household on a daily basis is deserving of a sitcom; canned laughter and all. My mom is forever reminding me to "Write that down. You'll want to remember it." So, this is the manner in which I have decided to put pen to paper.
The theme in my life as of late has been what a top quality mom I am. Friends are always quick to remind me that no mom is perfect. I am always quick to remind them that that saying was invented to make craptastic moms like me feel better. No one is perfect. Duh. But, in the race to be the best, if slightly imperfect mom...I'm running backwards. I have the innate ability to screw up just about every aspect of the child rearing arena. No pity, please. My self deprecating banter is just that. A way for me to vent. I know I love my kids. I know I would catch a grenade for them. (You like that hip, musical reference?) I am also aware of my flaws and shortcomings as a mother. Instead of beating myself up (too much) about it I choose to go forth with honesty and humor.
Care to join me?
