Today I was that mom.

I was the mom who added time to your shopping trip because my toddler was trailing behind me on her own two feet.

I was the mom who almost bumped into your cart 3 times because I forgot which isle the diapers were in.

I was the mom with the crying toddler that offered to buy her cookies.

I was the mom who did not buy the cookies because my child hit me.

I was the mom talking on her cell phone while her child screamed hysterically.

I was the mom who was carrying a toddler in one arm and pushing the cart with the other.

I was the mom who bought multiple frozen meals.

I was the mom of the child who bit open two packages of Doritos in the check out line.

 

Today I was that mom.

I was the mom who was so proud that her toddler was walking.

I was the mom who was up all night with the toddler.

I was the mom who cared that her toddler was overstimulated and thought cookies might help.

I was the mom who was confident enough to carry out discipline in the presence of others.

I was the mom who was on the phone sorting out an urgent situation with my child’s school.

I was the mom who smiled to hold back tears as I passed the other mom with toddler in one arm and cart in the other.

I was the mom with 3 small children who feels that in a month which is too chaotic, my time is better spent loving them than cooking gourmet meals.

I was the mom of the child that was hungry and tired and had behaved her best in an adult situation.

I was the mom rocking out in the car with her toddler because that is how she unwinds.

I was the mom who sat in her driveway because her toddler was sleeping.

I was the mom who was too hard on herself . . . and we have all been that mom.

 

Whoever you are, whatever your story may be and whatever kind of mom you are at the moment I encounter you, I love you. Your children love you. God loves you. You are the perfect mom for your children.
