  • There's no such thing as a perfect mom/person. I just try to do my best and make sure my son knows he is loved and cared for.

  • There's no such thing as a perfect mom but I think there can be close to perfect moms, its the one who does what she can to help her family, she is always there for her children when they need her, she loves her family unconditionally and her kisses always make the boo boos stop hurting! Lol

  • Yech - I don't like perfect.

    Too much pressure.

    I'll be over in the "loud singing, occasionally smack, lots of messy hugs and kisses, little bit snarky" section.
