Mama done good



If my southern grandma was still alive, I know she would look at this picture, pat me on my knee and say, "Sugar, you done good."

And she would be right. So far, I have been able to keep my head above water while keeping my babies safe and alive and somehow teaching them along the way to love and care for another. To be there for one another no matter what. And in 2012, I did not take enough time to look at my accomplishments as a mother.

So for me this is what the new year is going to be all about: believing in myself as a mother and giving myself those back pats when I deserve it. They don't say its the hardest job for nothing. and there have been days and will still be days when I will just want to lock myself in the toilet and cry about what a terrible mother I have been. But this year when those mommie blues come, I will think about this photo and remember the moment: Charly about to fall off the log and Luca grabbing her hand and saying "Don't worry I will help you."

Yes grandma, I have done good."

Happy 2013!!
