There is a part of me that still is very selfish and begins to lose sight of the end goal in mind;
raise a responsible, well-adjusted, contributing member of society.
I begin to worry that I am not getting enough 'me time' when all Cheetah wants is to have someone watch him jump in the pool for the 100th time.
I worry that I am making the wrong choices in life
and that later Cheetah will pay for my lapses in judgement.
I hope that he will remember more of the fun days we had together
than the days when I lost my cool and couldn't keep a level head.
I am the mom who tries to cram as much as she can into each 25th hour
while hoping to hit the lottery and institute the new 8 day week.
We all could use a Nundina in our future.
I attempt to provide the boy with the most out of the box childhood that I can.
I have taught him the joys of April Fool's day, making microwaved s'mores, and peeing outside.
I have grown a lot since I realized that the boy was mine to keep.
He has taught me some difficult lessons about myself and life.
Sure I would have been a perfectly wonderful person without becoming a mother
but now that I am THAT mom, our lives will never be the same.
Thanks, Jane for your never failing words of wisdom and for being someone I truly admire.

I hope you are all enjoying this week's I Am That Mom post, and to think we still have more to come!
Happy Tuesday to you and you and you.
