Parenting became easier once I started to admit to my kids that I didn’t know what I was doing. I started enjoying being a mom when I relaxed, quit trying so hard and started parenting from the heart rather than what I thought I should do. I became a better mom when I acknowledged my mistakes, forgave myself and began to love myself. Today I celebrate the not-so Hallmark Moms, the honest, vulnerable, mistake making Moms. I celebrate my sisters, cousins, and daughter who have yet to become Moms. May you be honest and imperfect Finally, I celebrate my kids who have allowed me to be a vulnerable, honest and an imperfect mom and who continue to make me look so damn good!
