Yesterday my daughter (she's 4) told me, after getting in trouble mind you, that she wanted a new Mom. One that does not punish, that gets her whatever she wants and does not make her eat pork chops. I started thinking about this comment last night and wondered if we could order up our parents (Moms in particular) would we change anything about them?
I always wanted a Mom who was supportive, loving and fun to be around. To some degree this is what I got and what I try to replicate. There are a few things that I have trouble with (who doesn't) in regards to my parents but when I listen to others I do realize how lucky I am.
But what about everyone else? If you could change one thing about your Mom what would it be? As a Mom I know what I would change about myself; I would have endless patience so after the fifth why question I did not get snappy. That and as always independent wealth and skinny without giving up any of my junk food. Ah the dream!!!!
