I have my moments but these are the moments I want to brainwash my boys to remember!
I am the type that would sit with my boys and play with Matchbox Cars for hours while they were younger. I am the one that enjoyed the Eric Carl books WAY too much and loved reading them for my boys. I am the one yelling “I LOVE YOU” from my car as my boys walk away for school. (Yes, they give me the evil look!!)
I am the type of Mom that can overlook messes. (This drives my Husband nuts!!) I want all my boy’s friends to come play at our house and think it’s cool!! I am the Mom competing with my boys doing jump tricks on trampoline and accidentally double bouncing my baby and giving him a broken arm. (Not Good!!!)
I am the crazy Mom on rainy days playing outside. We toss a plastic silver ball back and forth to each other while running in the rain—we just laugh for hours! I am the type of Mom that pushed my boys down a steep hill on their bikes so they would love the joy of speed.
(Keep in mind, I am also they type of Mom that needs her “Mommy Timeout“.)
I am the one out singing my boys in the car! (As they are yelling at me to turn it up so they can’t hear me!!) I am the type that chooses to sit at the kids table during family gatherings!
I am the type of Mom that wants to be remembered for all the fun little things. I want them to remember the time they challenged me to tricks on a smaller trampoline and I bounced on my behind so hard–I hit ground–and couldn’t walk for days!!
The laughter and the quality time is what I want to be remembered for! I have a great husband that goes along with me or has given up on my crazy–a LONG time ago. I am blessed to be the type of Mom I am because I love kids!! It doesn’t take big toys or lots of trips to have a good time. Most of these amazing memories come from our own backyard!
What type of Parent are you?
Happy Mother’s Day!!
