A post I read this morning titled “The Kind of Mother…” made me evaluate the type of mother that I am. I asked myself quite a handful of questions, but one of the questions I had a really hard time answering was this: “Did I turn out to be the kind of mother I always wished to be?”
Ever since I was mature enough to feel the want for children, I was certain about what kind of mother I want to become. I wanted to be the perfect combination of a parent and best friend. I want to be a figure of authority and my child’s role model, but I also want to be my child’s most trusted confidante, most loyal supporter, and most dependable ally.
So did I turn out to be this kind of mother? Hmmmmm. I don’t know. Perhaps, I am not really the right person/s to answer this question.
