Better Mom

If I was a better mom,
I’d clean those dirty dishes,
That have been sitting there for days,
Taunting me as I push through,
Challenged in many ways.

If I was a better mom,
I’d work three jobs to finance,
All we could ever want.
And I’d do it without exhaustion,
Because of expectation brought.

If I was a better mom,
I’d make a million dollars,
and buy my children many things;
go on a few vacations
and bring lullaby’s to sing.

If I was a better mom,
I’d show my babies,
Many times each day,
how much their daddy means to me,
and how much we love to play.

If I was a better mom,
I’d run on little sleep,
Caffeine would be my best friend,
And yoga pants I’d keep.

If I was a better mom,
I’d organize awesome playdates,
And have a bunch of friends;
I’d be in a million board groups,
And be awesome at pretend.

But I’m just a normal mom,
Surviving this hard life,
Praying my babies know I love them,
Even when faced with strife.

Because even though I’m a normal mom,
That’s still something; I’m proud,
Because I’m doing what I can,
In a world that is so loud.

Because when you’re a normal mom,
You may feel lack-luster,
But in the eyes of your babies,
You’re a perfect wonder.

I’m proud to be a normal mom,
Unique in my own way.
I love every minute,
As I go about my day.

Be proud to be a normal mom,
You’re doing enough, I promise.
Be present, make memories, and enjoy,
and look past the chronic.

Be proud to be that normal mom,
Who feels that she is struggling,
Because she has so many titles,
That she is always juggling.

Be proud to be that normal mom,
Who strives for perfect each day,
And be proud when you fall short,
Doing this your way.

Be proud to be that normal mom,
Who loves with her whole heart,
Forgets many important things,
and cries when life falls apart.

Be proud to be that normal mom,
Perfect in her own way,
That loves her babies unconditionally,
Each and every day.
