Feel Good Friday is a regular series to give you a smile, a chuckle, or a nugget of wisdom to get your weekend off on the right foot!
In honor of the Fourth of July holiday here in the U.S., I thought I’d take some of our country’s founding values and reinterpret them mommy-style. Tweet this post!
Freedom: Going to Target without any children in tow.
Equality: “I changed the last stinky diaper, this one is all yours.”
Democracy: Yeah, right. This is a dictatorship, and mama’s at the helm.
Individualism: Praising your child’s artistic expression, even though you can’t tell if his drawing is of you working at Home Depot or engaging in a more questionable profession.
“Manifest Destiny”: “You’re rolling your eyes now, kids, but remember that in 30 years you will wake up and say, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve become my mother.’”
Bravery: Taking a child under the age of 4 on a transatlantic flight.
Independence: Potty training, dressing themselves, the first day of kindergarten…and on and on from there…
