I am not a perfect mom

When I saw this note in my child's bedroom , reality strikes me.  It was for me. Oh yeah, I have a feeling it was addressed to me.

So, I take the note as a reminder to be gentle with my Cheyenne. Forgive me darling if I am too pushy.  If you have looked at me with the impression of a perfectionist mom, I apologize. I actually wouldn't want you to be perfect.  I want you to make mistakes and keep learning. And NO--don't try to be perfect for you will never be.  Only through your mistakes that you learn and become a better person.

So ,relax----I want you to enjoy life to the fullest. If making mistakes is what it takes, then let it be.

I love you even your stupid mistakes will not change that.

REMINDER - I am not a perfect mom so maybe you need to remind me that sometimes :-)
