i am a mom. that is not all that i am, but it is a huge part of me. i do not want a cookie. this is a life i chose.

i am not a chef. i rarely cook.

i am not a chauffer. i haven't driven a car in almost 8 years.

i am not a healer. i do kiss a mean booboo but i'd be lost if i ever saw bone. there's a reason i didn't spend years in medical school.

i am not a seamstress, though i do love to sew. maybe one day when my child(ren) are grown i'll have time to take it up again.

i am not a maid. i clean up after myself and the child for which i am responsible. i have the great fortune of a husband who shares equally in this responsibility.

i am not a psychologist. literally, i have no training in the field. i have no idea how my words or actions will actually affect my child in her future. i just hope i'm doing it right.

i am not a nutritionist. at least i recognize that soda is not food.

i am not a teacher. i impart habits, not calculus. i teach love, that's about where my qualifications end.

i am not amazing. i have a child. i love her very much. i'm doing everything i think is right. she is mine and i am hers. none of my decisions for her make me an expert in any right. i am just a mother. she is my only reward.
