For the Blog Carnival inspired by Flo Gascon .. started by Ronnie Sundance Maier and fueled by super inspiring mom's and dad's around the globe!
I'm that mom
... who birthed her babies at home cause it felt like a good idea
.. who nursed her baby near every two hours for the first three years of his life cause it was just what he needed
.. who jumps in puddles when it rains even without waterproof foot wear on just cause it looks so tempting
.. who smokes pretend cigarettes with her kids cause such a big idea is clearly worth exploring in the most authenticate of ways
.. who piles dishes on the counter when the dishwasher is full cause tickle backs on in high demand
.. who pulls out a ladder and holds it steady cause someone wonders if an egg dropped from the roof on to the grass will break
.. who bakes cakes, even if they are simply for the purpose of decoration and never actually get eaten cause the inspiration arises
.. who buys four cans of whip cream cause one is never enough
.. who is willing to pass back a cup/bottle/bowl for peeing in when pulling over is impossible cause sometimes holding it in just is way to hard
.. who watches from the sidelines while holding smaller hands cause she knows that participation comes in all sizes and shapes
... who watches way more disney channel shows then she might choose cause it means sitting beside someone I adore
.. who snuggles under the blankets and tells more then one bedtime story cause sometimes sleep can be elusive
And Yes I am that Mom, who would rather have others judge, laugh or shake their head at her then disappoint, embarrass or belittle her children (or anyone's children really).
