Mothering Moments: Good Parenting

Being a mother is hard work. There's the long hours, breaking up fights, constantly picking up, endless laundry, and meals to prepare. Not to mention very little pay, unless you shun cash and prefer crayon artwork on your walls, "shared" sticky candy, and someone eating all the Little Debbie's so you don't ruin your diet. You are supposed to mold them into decent human beings and guide their path as best you can. Being a mom is not for the faint-hearted.

But every now and then, a brief spark of happiness shines through, and all the stretch marks and mom jeans are worth it. I had one of those rare glimpses one Saturday while the kids were watching Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban. This conversation testified that I am doing the very best for my kids.

Baby: Why is Doctor Who in Harry Potter?
Boo: Because he's playing the bad guy.
Baby: Doctor Who is not a bad guy! He's the Doctor!
(Baby proceeds to be indignant about her sister's claims while Boo attempts to explain the concept of actors.)

Isn't being a mother great?

It's those moments that make it all worth it!
I'm a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan, and the hubby & I often exclaim, "Oy with the poodles alredy!" Yesterday, Cooper started saying it too. Mommy WIN!!
