Here's the thing: I'm not a perfect person by any shape of the imagination. Never have been, never will be. And that's OK. That's a part of who I am. But I'm also not a person who really cares much about what other people think or say or do. I mean, of course I care, especially when it's affecting me or mine, but if I can't change something, I don't really put much energy into it. (It's taken me an insane amount of time to truly live my life like this because, again, I'm not, nor have I ever been, perfect.)
That all said and done, I've never been one to really worry about my Parenting.
Again, I'm not a perfect person and this holds true in every single aspect of my life including Parenting. But just because I'm not perfect at it, doesn't mean I can't rock it. And frankly...
I'm a Rockstar Parent.
I love being a Mama. I love it with everything I have, everything I am. The moment she was placed into my arms, I knew that parenting was what I was meant to do in my life.
And I kick ass at it.
I'm not saying I know everything about Parenting. It doesn't mean I'm some expert. It doesn't mean I don't read books and blogs and articles and comments on Parenting. It doesn't mean I can't afford to learn more about Parenting.
But it does mean that while I don't really give a shit what the Joneses are doing, I do care about what kind of parent I am- and that's a damn good one with the confidence to say so out loud.

1.) Share something your child taught YOU about parenting.


  1. You're absolutely right, you don't have to be a perfect parent to be a kick ass one. And all you have to do is take one look at that gorgeous, happy, confident girl (love her!) to see that you do in fact kick ass!

  2. None of us are perfect. Ever! At anything! What I love about this is your confidence. Keep rocking that. And your daughter will always feel it and exude it as well (and already is....she looks so happy, too) the Joneses are overrated and what do they know anyway?

    You have one of the darn cutest kids I've ever seen.

  3. I laughed when I read...

    I'm a Rockstar Parent. Love that. And I love being a mom too, I just don't have the confidence these days I guess.

    Lovie is growing. You can tell by that photo.

  4. Love your take on this. We have that kitchen and your daughter is getting more adorable by the day. That is all.


speak your mind.
