Well I’m on my way. I don’t know where I’m going.
Happy Mother’s Day weekend, here’s a peak into my life as a mom. I’m not a perfect mom by any means, but my son thinks so. So welcome to my new job. In my new job there are days when we stay in our pajama’s, watch a little tv and eat…shhh…sugar. Did I mention that I love my new job. There are rules in my new job, some followed some not, but we try our best. In my new job, I’m a magic creator, a boo boo fixer, a monster chaser, and a baseball coach?…The thing is, there’s no manual for my job, no rule book, and no two jobs, or children for that matter are the same. A mother knows her child. I know that I’m creating a world where my child can be a child, I’m building my sons self worth and confidence, morals and manners. I will teach him it’s okay to fail and great to succeed, to taste the bitterness of defeat and the sweetness of victory and to learn from both. Essentially I will try my best to teach my son to follow his dream, whatever it may be, and follow it with love and passion. That’s what I was taught.
I learned from my mother to go after what I want in life and I will pass this along to my son, adapting and customizing along the way. My mother taught me life lessons that I am grateful for, I think it’s one of the greatest jobs a mother can do. I’m lucky to have learned and continue to learn new things daily as a mom and from my mom. This truly is the best job of my life, always will be and I will never quit. I never wish a minute of my new job away, but I do look forward to the future. Whether it be in an ice cold rink on a Saturday at the crack of dawn, or listening to a musical rendition of twinkle twinkle for the 37th time in a row. My future is bright and now almost as magical as it was when I myself was a child. So Happy Mothers day to my mother and to all the other mother’s out there who are just trying their best to create magic and memories, we will continue to try our best.
I’m on my way, and I’m taking my time.
