I have heard a lot from my mother about how it is important to be the best mom that you can be, and to always be a leader, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen her do anything to be a leader that was better than what I did. She was always very clear about what she wanted, and what she wanted me to be, so I do think she really had my best interests at heart.
I think she’s right, and my mom also has a big influence on my outlook on life. You know, I was never a particularly big role model growing up, and I don’t think I ever went to a party or anything where the adults I was around were going to be super-involved. I think I was always a little more reserved, in a way. My mom really encouraged me to do whatever I wanted and to be more independent.
It is likely that your mother has been playing a positive role in your life since you were a toddler. She instilled in you a love for playing games and making up stories, and a love for the arts. It is also likely that your mother is very supportive of you as you grow older and that you feel a strong connection to her. I mean she would be a pretty great mother if she wasn’t so damn old.
I’m not sure if this is the best advice to give but I think it may be a great suggestion to give to women who are having serious doubts about motherhood. My mother was a single woman with four kids and a job in a non-traditional way. She never complained about that and I always knew that she was a good and loving mother.
I was not born a mother, but I have been a mother for nearly a year now. For the first year, I felt like I was on a train to hell (or maybe hell’s version of a train would be the best way to describe it). I was so tired that I was just going to drop dead in my sleep. I thought I would be a good mother because I thought I would be a good wife and housewife so I did a lot of that, to no avail.
I felt like I wasn’t really a good parent because I was so tired. I was so tired that I had no energy to do anything else. I took it out on my kids and I didn’t have the energy to do anything else. I took it out on my friends and I didn’t have the energy to do anything else. I took it out on my relationships and I didn’t have the energy to do anything else. I was just going to drop dead in my sleep.
Advice I’ve received? Yeah, I don’t know if “advice” is the right word, but this is what I got.
My advice to you is this: when your kid is sick, you are a real fucking mess. Even if it is a cold. Even if it is a flu. Even if it is a strep throat. Even if it is a cold, even if it is a flu, even if it is a strep, you are not going to be able to do anything about it.
That’s the advice I had from my mother, when I was a kid, when my mother’s boyfriend had cancer. He was in the hospital and she would call me and try to convince me to call my mother to come and take care of me because she would not be able to care for me herself. But I knew she would not be able to care for me herself, so I kept calling her, telling her I needed her to come to the hospital. She always called me back.
I think she was trying to let me know that she supported me. She loved me so much, and I really didn’t know what to do. I thought if she was alive, she’d be there to take care of me, but she wasn’t, so I just kept calling her.
