I get it.
Really I do.
I am there too.
Only five more pounds then I will.
When I get my hair done, then I will.
I have to get new clothes, then I will.
As moms, there a million different reasons we say we will…sometime.
But that’s how you see you. What if, what if just for a second, you imagine how your kids see you.
I hated this picture series.
I should have pressed my shirt (what what I thinking??). I should have sucked in a little more (what WAS I thinking?). I should have lifted my chin so you wouldn’t have seen the wrinkles anymore. Clearly I WASN’T thinking.
I should haves was all that I saw.
There were only things I didn’t like about this picture.
Until my youngest son said it was perfect.
Which I still don’t see.
But he sure does.
What does perfect look like? And whose version are you trying to live up to?
