My daughter didn't eat anything
but tortilla chips for dinner.
She went to bed with damp hair.
The TV babysat for a while today
so I could deal with my depression.
I told her to put herself in time out
because I was busy fixing a gourmet lunch
What kind of mother am I?
I've read the parenting books.
Taken classes on early development.
I've read the mommy blogs.
Joined the mom groups.
I should be the perfect mom.
But I'm not.
I yell sometimes
(But I try to follow up with hugs).
Meals don't always include a veggie
(But I'm always trying to find one she'll like).
Bedtime is nowhere near consistent
(But I am always willing to sing another lullaby).
I am an imperfect mother
(But I love her more than life).
