So what does it mean to be a good mother? I always thought it meant working your ass of to provide, keeping up with the laundry, making healthy meals, kissing boo boo's, singing silly songs! Now i wonder if all being a good mom really means is loving your children and letting dishes pile up! Is it letting dust cover your night stands while you play outside. Or is it just being who you are and raising your children to be who they are? I know a couple of people that really are everything their parents ever wanted in a child and i know even more people that are nothing their parents wanted but their parents will never see that side of their child. But more importantly I know a few people that are everything their parents never wanted and yet some how they turned out to be everything their parent could have asked for. I would like to think that i am one of those people. I have really screwed up in life by making really dumb choices and following stupid paths yet somehow i found my own dirt road that i am slowly working on paving. I have realized that we all look at parenthood in a different way. I know that i will screw things up with my kids (heck i probably already have). I will be a good mother as long as my child turns out to be a good man! I will teach him right from wrong, I will show him love, never hate, I will sing silly songs, I will let dishes go unwashed, I will fight for him but most importantly I will fight for me! Can our children ever really know how to live if they never see their parents living!
