A Mommy Pledge

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I'm "borrowing" this from my awesome momma blogger friend over at JourneyChic.  It so perfectly sums up the job of a mother, that I had to share:


I will pick you up when you fall down.
I will wipe the tears from your eyes and the poo from your bottom.
I will read you stories again, and again, and again.
I will bounce you and sing to you even when my back hurts and my throat is sore.
I will comfort you when you wake at all hours, for whatever reason.
I will pick your nose until you can do it yourself (and then promptly teach you to use a tissue).
I will put a smile on my face the moment I see you after bad day at work, because my smile makes you smile, and your smile turns mine into a genuine one.
I will sing, dance, and make ridiculous faces just to please you.
I will hug you and kiss your perfect, chubby cheeks until you push me away.
I will teach you everything I know. Sometimes, I will let you fail so you can teach yourself.
I will always be there for you when you need me, no matter how old you are.
I will love you no matter who you become, what you do, or who you love.
I will be a better person because you gave me life, as much as I gave it to you.
I will not be perfect, but I will do the best that I can.
I will always be your mommy, and you will always be my baby boy.

Be still, my heart.  Hope this finds you well.
