I believe that in the world of parenting, there is time for “fun mommy” and time for “down-to-business mommy,” which is really just a nice way of saying “mean mommy.” These days, I must say that I fall into the “down-to-business mommy” category. It’s not that I don’t like to have fun, but I have just fallen into a rut where I’m so preoccupied with Belle’s behaviour and stupid little things that don’t really matter, and I simply forget to have fun with my little girl. So, I’ve decided to give “down-to-business” mommy a little holiday and let fun mommy hang out for a while. It’s time to have some belly laughs and let loose, so I will play, and just be with my kiddies.
It also helps to see things like this in the bookstore. It seriously made me laugh out loud. (On a bad day, I could unfortunately see myself doing the same as the gal on the book cover).
