    Mother's Day Week

    May 7, 2008

    There are so many reasons I love being a mother. The more I think about it, the more my joy swells. Mostly I just love that I have this job, with basically no prior skills, and I feel like it is a natural fit. Even though I'm not the most nurturing, huggy touchy feely mother, I feel like teaching my kids to do things on their own, and stand up for themselves is just as important as holding their hands and carrying them around. Don't get me wrong, I do my fair share of hugging and kissing, they certainly aren't neglected in that area, it's just not my strong point. But that's okay. I hope I make up for that in other areas.

    If I've made any errors as a mother - and I'm sure I've made many - one of the biggest has been in the arena of not letting my kids do for themselves. They've all come out fine, but I think I could have been better at showing rather than doing so much.

    I love being a mother too. I like being a friend to my kids too. Its an even balance. Mother first, friend second.

    Love the posts.

    You are so good at that. Your kids do so much for themselves and I feel like I have to do everything for my kids. You have been such a good example to me.
    Love you!
