I think I'm going to be a bad mom. Don't get me wrong (I've been told) I'm a killer Aunt, but there's just something about being a big kid myself that has me a little worried. Everyone always says as long as you get the bills paid, and keep the lights on, you're doing good. But, let's face it, it's a big sticky mess of a world out there, and you can't always eat ice cream and Popcicles.
My reasoning, however, says quite the opposite. I argue that, when you CAN have cupcakes for breakfast you should. Not every day, of course, but if times are good, and even when times aren't, it's still okay to smile for no reason at all. Find those moments and make them happen; you deserve it, right?
So I'm here, today, to tell you to eat the brownie tonight, go jump on your children's trampoline, sing in the car when nobody's watching, and always put extra syrup on those waffles. Make every day magical! What's your 'magic.'
What Daughter Says: Just because you aren't a kid doesn't mean you never have to feel like one again!
