The Husband Aaron took this picture of me on our honeymoon. I am staring out the window looking at Cannes. At the time I was thinking about what I wanted out of my life and my new marriage. I have some of these things ,like an awesome husband, baby, and dog, but am still working on others. Now that Princess A is here I have a lot of things I want out of motherhood.
Everyday I wake up I try to be a good mom but inevitably I make some mistakes. When Princess A was first born, I was very hard on myself when I messed up. I also stressed out about the bad things in the world that I can’t control. I wanted to be a “good mom” and to me that meant being the perfect mom. Now that time has passed I am easier on myself and have quit trying to be perfect… and you know what? I am able to enjoy my baby more!
So I keep thinking what I want out of motherhood and what I want for Princess A and since the world and my daughter will always be changing all I can decide on is that I want to BE THERE.
I can’t take away all that is bad in the world and I can’t be a perfect mom but I can be there for her when things go wrong to give her advice and a big kisses!
This song reminds me how I feel about my family!!!
