I just want my children to look up to me and say hey, my moms a pretty amazing person.
She always dropped what she was working on to hear what I had to say.
She made time to do crafts
She made time to help me read
She made time to make me feel loved, valued, special, unique and inspired.
She always believed in me
She always supported me.
I want them to look at me not for what I did for them physically but for being the role model for how I want to live, love and parent.
I want to set a realistic example, one that they love and adore. One that shows the messy kitchen and the toy car tracks racing across the floor.
The one with the laundry pile and the barbie house decorated for a party.
I want them to know that life does not have to be perfect in order to achieve perfection. Just because things are not in order does not mean that they are not perfect. Perfection is what you believe it is. My mother was perfection for all that she has given me.
I want to give my kids the perfection of a crazy, happy, organized and disorganized home, love, crafts, road trips, snuggle time, ice cream runs and movie nights. My life may not be perfect but it is perfection to me. I want my kids to love that perfection and want to create that same perfection for themselves. This is the perfect role model.
Have a wonderful day!
