Now Listen Here Young Man

 
I was talking the other day with a friend about how totally incompetent I feel when it will come to being a mom. I can spike a mean volleyball, sew a skirt but raise a human to become an awesome person....I'm terrified.
 Don't get too excited me and Sir Matt aren't even thinking about getting pregnant right now but sometimes I can't help but think about what kind of mom I'll be. Will I be the finger pointer, the shoe thrower, the threat maker....the guilt giver?
 My mom always knew the perfect thing to do, she knew to ignore me while I pouted and sulked in self pitty for several hours on end, just hug me while I cried or tell me to suck it up and put a smile on when I really needed it. She was a dang natural.
 But what if I just....don't know what to do. I do think I'll be good at one thing though, the "mom look". I know how to give a darn good stink eye. Check it.
 Don't you just want to do exactly what I tell you right now?
How about now? Yeah that's what I thought.

10 superstar points if you know where this quotes from

" Your girlfriend gave me the stink eye in art class yesterday" "Katrina's not my girlfriend alright? And I doubt she gave you the stinkeye that's just how her face looks, you know? That's just her face."

  4. Don't worry, you will figure out the mom thing. Every kid is different and they all have to be loved and taught in a different way. The good things is that they come to you very little and you learn all about them before you get to the hard stuff.
    Your skirt is adorable!

  7. juno? if i'm right can i win your wardrobe?? ;)
    and you'll be surprised how much motherhood comes naturally to you... it's like the switch just turns on once you have a baby and you just know, or at least know as much as you need to at that time, and the rest comes through intuition and trial and error... i always felt like how you are describing and then i had my daughter and it was as though i had always been a mother and that i was meant for that role... you'll be great when the time comes, especially if you have such a great mom like you mentioned...
    and you look cute as always :)

  9. It's Juno, right! I desperately need Superstar points! I woke up to snow and resisted my urges to stay in bed until it melted!

    At least not knowing is better than knowing when it comes to being a mom. I have no kids, but already I know I'll be the "bad cop". Sigh... why did I choose to marry a guy that is just so much fun!?!

  17. love how you styled that great skirt!! I always wondered what kind of mom I would be, then I had the boys and being a mom just fell into place...you have the faces down pat already!!

  18. I love Juno, and when she goes into labor and yells "thundercats go!". I worry about what kind of Mother I will be someday. I think as long as you are trying your best, and your children are doing great, you are doing something right.

  22. I didn't have a clue what to do when I became a mom, and five years later I'm still not sure what I'm doing!
