I'm Not Like A Cool Mom, I'm A Regular Mom
Of course you are kind, loving, warm, affectionate.
But when it comes to parenting what kind of mom are you? Or better yet what kind of mom do you want to be?
I've always wanted to be the kind of mom that my kids can come to. Share their problems, ask questions, look for advice and tell me the good things happening in their world.
I recently realized that in order to be the kind of mom I want to be I can't be a cool mom. I need to be a regular mom.
This doesn't mean I can't be a fun mom, a with it mom, an in the know-knows what's up, up on the latest music-entertainment-what's hot-what's not, mom.
I just can't be a "cool mom"
If I'm a cool mom then there aren't any rules or boundaries. I won't be setting an example for them to live their life by. I can't be that invisible safety net so they can fall without fear. And I'll embarrass them in public for the wrong reasons.
I'm totally fine with this. It's 100% the kind of mom I want to be.
Just don't ask me to wear the mom jeans.
