I've been thinking about this article by April Perry from Power of Moms all week. I've been reading it and re-reading it to remind me of the kind of person I'm striving to be. The article has been all over Facebook and Twitter over the past few days, but if you haven't read it, you should. You might like it too. :)
And if you haven't checked out The Power of Moms website, it's fantastic. So inspirational, and I'm really looking forward to performing at their upcoming retreat in Park City next month. If your hubby needs a good idea for a Mother's Day present, you can send him this link for the retreat! What a great way to kick off Mother's Day weekend!
P.S. Here's another favorite post of mine from April (which appears in Whitney's new book). I actually said, "Mommy is a person and needs to fix her own dinner" to my son tonight. I was kind of proud of myself. :)
P.P.S. The picture of the kids above has nothing to do with anything other than them being cute.
P.P.P.S I also want the record to show that I have a picture of myself with L. I look hideous, and she has her binkie in her mouth, but it's a start. :) (Note to self: squatting down in pictures is NOT flattering. Please don't do it in the future.)
Thanks, Allison for the pictures! And for letting us stay at your house, and eat your food, and for babysitting my kids, and for basically being awesome.
