Well, it's New Year's Day...and many find themselves making resolutions concerning the way they want to do things this year: lose weight, eat healthy, go to bed on time, be nice to everybody...I don't know...whatever.

This is a site about motherhood, and I thought that every mom should know: You don't need to strive to be a perfect mother! For one thing, you KNOW what happens to those "resolutions" (and rather quickly)! Let me encourage you that you ARE a mother and you have a natural way of loving your kid anyway! So, if you were hoping to never lose your temper, or to always have time for junior, yeah, do your best. Every morning you have the opportunity to say "It's a new day, what kind of mother do I want to be today?" But save yourself some stress: don't make a New Year's resolution. A year is a long time. Take one day at a time.

Happy New Year's Day every Mommy!
