This weeks topic is What is my vision of the perfect mom.

The perfect mom. There is not one. A great mom is one that knows that being the perfect mom is impossible & in no way reachable. No human is perfect, no mom either. Loving our child[ren] with everything inside our being, that is damn near close to perfection right there. Our children are not looking for perfection from us. They are looking for love, comfort, protection, & our time. 

In the midst of screaming kids & a messy house, a good mom knows that she is doing the best she can. She may have a mommy melt down but she picks herself up, says a little needed prayer, & goes on about her daily routine. She looks in the mirror at the hot mess she has become & loves it. Really loves it. She is proud, & knows she is blessed. 



I am one bad ass mom, so says my About Me page.

  1. There is no higher calling in our lives than the call to be a wife and mom. Our role changes as our children grow but realizing the gift of life in front of you is the first step to being an awesome mom.its not about just meeting our children's needs. It's also about embracing who they are as little individuals. Each stage of mommy hood is amazing! Just you wait until your daughter calls you about her own life or her baby. Then you will know it wasn't about being perfect it was about how much you love them and showed them how much they mean to you.

  2. <3 I want to enjoy every stage with Kenzie. & Mina. They are blessing for sure. When I see me in Kenzie I know that I have to strive to be the best mom I can be for her. Though when I hear her say a cuss word that she obviously learned from me, it shows me right there that I am no way perfect. I am human. I am a mom!

  6. You ARE a badass mom! This was so well said. All you can do is lay down the foundation, and pray, and trust in the Lord that what you're doing sinks in. :)

  7. This couldn't be more real. So many times we can get caught up in thinking we are not doing all we need to. I have struggled a lot with this in being a new mom but have realised over time that we can never really get close to perfection. We can only do the best we can, and if all that is is loving our child(ren) then that's perfect enough! I am looking forward to joining in on some of these Mamas Tell All. I think its a great idea! :)
