I wonder if I'm a good mom now....

I'm a stepmom to a 9 year old boy and a mom to a 4 girl year old girl. I don't freak out over little things. My kids have their own TV's and watch them when they want to. I don't cook every single meal and we eat out quite a bit. I work full time and my kids are in public school. Grades are important but I have never spazzed out on my SS for getting a C. I dont' pitch a fit when they get a boo boo. They don't just watch cartoons. My 4 year old loves Greys anatomy. I didn't breastfeed. BUT they are well behaved kids who have amazing manners. But I feel bad like because I don't freak out over every little thing like some mothers on here do. Does that make me a bad mother? lol. I've always felt like I was a good mom until I joined this site and saw what kind of things ppl saw as bad. lol

    I agree... and the ones that care enough to "rethink" what they do are the ones that I'm not worried about. Its the Moms that are know-it-alls and won't listen to anyone that worry me.
