A New Mom

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!!!!

When I was a kid, there were a lot of things I would have changed about my Mom.

Now, not so much. She seems perfect to me now that I'm 41 years old.

Good job, Mama Bunny!!

P.S. - I think it's hysterical that your daughter would like to trade you in for a nicer model!!

Didn't we all dream about having our "real" (princess) mom come and take us away from the mean mom that never let us get away with anything. I know I did.
