I am not that mom

I’m not that mom who always has tissues in her handbag for snotty noses.

I’m not that mom who reads her child a bedtime story every night.

I’m not that mom who thinks home-baked is better than shop bought when it’s time for baker day.

I’m not that mom who doesn’t bribe her kids to eat dinner.

I’m not that mom who doesn’t switch on the Disney Channel while I make dinner.

I’m not that mom who has a lot of patience when my kids eat with their mouth open.

I’m not that mom that doesn’t mind the mess of an untidy bedroom.

I’m not that mom that cooks vegetables every night.

I’m not that mom that takes her kids for their annual dentist checkup.

I’m not that mom who carts soccer boys in her SUV every afternoon.

I’m not that

But

I am that mom that will make sure you won’t go to bed with an empty stomach.  I am that mom that will work every night so you can have a good education.  I am that mom that will make sure you won’t have to go without.  I am that mom that hopes and prays that you are happy.  I am that mom that loves you like no-one else.  I’m that mom that will fight for your safety and well being.

I am that mom that hopes one day you will realize that I did my best.  And I hope it’s enough.

  1. My mom was (is) that mom. Like you. And it is enough. She raised two strong, independent girls who love fiercely and completely. Because we know we were (are) loved.
