Holly is not doing so good on getting things done!
This is an interesting goal for me. Most of my goals are SMART – but this one that doesn’t have a finish line or even a set measure of parameters. What is a great mom? How do you know if you’ve been one? When do you stop counting?
I mean I guess when I’m sixty and my baby is in his 30s he might say I was a great mom.
Instead of worrying too much, I try to concentrate on making the best of being a mom every day. We go for walks, have lots of cuddles, play… I try to be mindful of the things I do for him.
I make decisions based on the least-harm theory. I may not choose the right type of diaper or might not have “naptime” down to a science but in the end I want to know, in my heart of hearts, that I have done the best I knew how to do.
If it turns out that playing the radio is harmful and mothers shouldn’t eat blue cheese when nursing, then at least I’ll know that at the time I did the best I could.
