What kind of parent are you?

I found this post on www.huffington.com that was originally from Jill Smokler at www.scarymommy.com describing how Jill sees herself as a parent and it really hit home, especially the pool and bath reference.  I think more often than not, things may not work out exactly like we want them to or think they should, but we try our best to be good parents.


I am a breastfeeding failure whose children still managed to thrive.

I am a parenting class drop-out.

I am an unintentional co-sleeper.

I am an out of frustration yeller.

I am an infrequent school volunteer-er.

I am a reluctant short order cook.

I am an unfortunate curser.

I am a thank you note believer, but often forgetter.

I am a Betty Crocker baker.

I am a laugher, at all the wrong moments.

I am an eye roller.

I am an incompetent homework helper.

I am a skip the bath if you’ve been to the pool believer.

I am a documenter of the little moments.

I am a lover of my children, but disliker of most others.

I am a non-bedmaker.

I am a well intentioned mistake maker.

I am a laid back obsessor.

I am an over-bandager if it stops the crying.

I am a “tomorrow is a new day” vower.

Basically? I’m a parent who tries.
