Fun Friday and Friday Rant

It's Friday, which means it's time to prepare yourself for a great weekend. Especially if you're a mom. I hope your Mothers Day is filled with relaxation, good food, and cute gifts from your cute kids.
But on a side note:
The articles about motherhood are really killing the joy of motherhood. Whether it's stories about how you're a bad mom if you're not strict enough, or how it's okay if you're a bad mom, or how you need to enjoy every moment of motherhood and not look at the Internet, or how we should be honest about the fact that not every moment is that fun, or about three year olds who are still breast feeding....en...ough!
Just be a mom, do your thing, go with the flow. People wonder why moms have less kids these days...maybe it's because motherhood has turned into this over-analyzed thing, where you have to wring your hands about every choice you make. Need advice on what to do, here's a good rule to follow: Did your mom do it with you? Yes? Did you turn out fine? Maybe even a tad awesome? Then it's fine if you do it too. Or did she do something you hate? Then avoid it.
Now don't worry about it, move on and do the best YOU can do.
And please enjoy your special day celebrating what an awesome mom you are!

P.S. When did my teeny tiny baby become a full on toddler that actually PLAYS at the playground?

Enjoy every second every moment. I sometimes want to be a bubble parent and just hold on to them so tight to make sure they are safe BUT in reality I can't. So I will work hard PRAY harder that they come out at least double better then me:)

stopping by from Casey's link up! I always say motherhood is really whatever "works best for you." We're all different and that's what makes the world a more interesting place, right?? :)

Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!
