Mommy Mondays: I want to be a better mom...

On this day after Mothers' Day I am reflecting on my job performance over the past 19 months. I'm doing an OK job, but I still want to be a better mom... I want to be the kind of mom who is able to get out of the house early and run errands with her baby. Instead, I am me and my baby sleeps in and I can’t manage to leave the house before 11 when I have to get us both ready.   At the Post Office this morning I saw a mom with two toddlers . It was 9:00 AM. This mom was out of the house and her hair was combed. Her kids were dressed and relatively well behaved. She had even trained the older one to handle the money. Maybe one day I will be more like her!   I want to be the kind of mom that does the right thing and feels the right way about it. Sometimes I go through the motions, but I’m not really feeling it.   One day when my daughter threw up in my hair I thought it was gross not cute. I didn’t like smelling like sour milk and I was upset that I had to leave the house
