So, it seems that there are tons of not-so-perfect mothers out there. What?! *Gasp* You know the ones I am talking about. The moms that don’t carpool 5 kids to 17 weekly activities while staying perfectly made up and put together. These are the same moms that don’t make their kiddos perfectly symmetrical and made from scratch cupcakes for her kids and the entire team, as well. They don’t have both a perfectly manicured garden – oh, and a perfect manicure. I admit it. My name is Dawn, and I am a crappy mom.
I am a crappy mom because…
I kiss my husband in front of our daughter.
I let her stay up until pretty much whenever she wants most nights.
She has a TV and her own DVR in her room.
My husband does the laundry.
My husband does most of the cooking, too. I hate to cook and he loves it.
We don’t eat at a kitchen table, we eat in the living room in front of the TV and watch Beverly Hills 90210 reruns together daily.
I let her have a cell phone at 9. She is 15 now. And she still has a cell phone. And she hasn’t gone over the minutes once.
Sometimes I yell. Ok, often I yell.
I often yell empty threats of groundings and cell phones being taken away.
I don’t spank (for all of you who do).
I let her listen to whatever music she wants.
I let her wear whatever clothes she wants.
I let my daughter go on out of state field trips.
I have taken her to tons of concerts – all different genres.
I have taken her shopping in the middle of the night on a weekend.
I let my daughter have all of the makeup/beauty products that I am asked to review on this site. All.
I was a single mom until my daughter was 9 and I worked 2 jobs to make ends meet.
I then dropped one job and finished my college education.
And most of all, I love her more than life itself.
