I’m not that kind of mom……
I am not the kind of mom that hovers over her kids.
I am not the kind of mom that knows every name of her kid’s friends and their parent’s names.
I am not the kind of mom that joins the PTA or volunteers to be the field trip chaperone.
I am not the kind of mom that cries on their first day of school.
And sometimes, I feel bad that I’m not that kind of mom.
The truth is..
I’m the kind of mom that loves to spend time with my kids but I also celebrate and dance when they leave for 6 six weeks of sleep away camp.
I’m the kind of mom that every friday eats pizza (sometime McDonalds) with the kids while we watch our favorite show Black-ish together.
But today everything shifted.
I got this letter from my youngest at my last Muffins with Moms Day.
It told me that it was ok to be the mom I am, and not the mom I thought I SHOULD be.
That I’m doing ok.
Thank you Patrick.
