“I knew I was going to be the mom who not only made the best chocolate chip cookies but also let my kids help me, never once getting annoyed at the mess they made. The mom who is never in a rush, never yells and never accuses.
Until I figured out the perfect mom is not the best mom. The patient mom is not the fun mom, and the fun mom has a temper.
Until I had my kids and realized the mom who doesn’t bake cookies creates the best forts, and the mom who hates to play with her kids loves to read to them.”
