I was reading a new blog today and found a post about what it means to be a "Real Mom" , go check it out. It got me thinking, what is a "real mom"?
A real mom isn't afraid of that green thing hanging off her child's finger, even if she isn't sure what it is.
A real mom will eat the soggy, half eaten grahm cracker when it's offered to her, because it makes her child smile.
A real mom will cheerfully agree that, yes, blue eyeshadow does make the dog look better.
A real mom will bake three dozen cookies at eleven o'clock on a Thursday night because her daughter forgot to tell her there's a bake sale Friday morning.
A real mom will wear a bra that pokes her for six months because it means her child gets to have that toy/pair of jeans/game that they just have to have.
A real mome will smile through her tears as she watches her baby turn into a grown-up, right in front of her eyes.
A real mom will always accept you....no matter what mistakes you make.
A real mom will make the really hard decisions, so you don't have to.
A real mom will always make sure that the lights come on, the house is warm, the refrigerator is full and you never think about why that is.
A real mom is all the things you need her to be, when you need her to be them....and she never asks you to say thank you.
