As a mom…I think I deserve more than just one medal…
I deserve a medal for the time I didn’t curse out the rude, older woman behind me in the coffee shop who “huffed and sighed” as I ordered my breakfast and lunch sandwich, INSTEAD I did turn to look at her with a blank expression for a few seconds.
I deserve a medal for the time I complimented Dino on being such a good boy while he acted like a normal four year old in the grocery store INSTEAD of running over the older lady who was giving us dirty looks.
I deserve a medal for every time I don’t yell at parents for posting incorrect and unsafe car seat photos of their children on Facebook…INSTEAD I pray the child makes it home safe and uninjured.
I deserve a medal for the every time I don’t slam the door in peoples faces when they don’t say “thank you” to me for holding it open for them….INSTEAD I loudly say “Your Welcome”
I deserve a medal every time I stretch out each and every dollar and finding a way to feed my family without spending a fortune.
I deserve a medal for holding a million bags in my arms, while carrying a four year old, and opening a door.
I deserve a medal for knowing how to install, take out, and reinstall car seats.
I deserve a medal for being a mom who loves herself and is happy with who she is. In turn he is a happy and blessed boy, who loves who he is and accepts others for who they are.
What medal(s) do you deserve?
