I am . . .

I am . . .


short

(or economically packaged)

a little pudgy

(but soft for cuddling)

emotional

(but at least I have a heart)

not that pretty

(but he thinks I'm beautiful)

not that smart

(but he thinks I'm brilliant)

not that funny

(but he laughs at me all the time)



I am not so bad at this . . .

With just a little bit of help.


I am me. Nothing more. Nothing less.


I’m OK with it.


Are you?

I remind myself of this often, because you know what - - being a mother is one of my, hell - - it's MY HUGEST accomplishment.

Misty said...

PS: It's fun to first. (And second).

I am.

I, too, marvel at the way our genes have combined to make some amazing kids.

You forgot totally rad. 'Cause you're that, too.

I'm also in agreement with Mr. Lady.

Love it! I wrote something for my husband with a similar ending this week. I may post it. Or not. lol It ended with "I am Beth."

Lori said...

I love that

Lisa said...

Most days I'm alright with me. There are days that it's more difficult, but I feel that I have to love me in order to teach my girls to love themselves, you know?

MoziEsmé said...

If you can make one of those, you are Wonder Woman! All the rest is inconsequential!

abby p said...

so, i've seen you in the flesh and you are totally not pudgy. if you are, you hide it well. and not pretty? whatever. Not that smart? Right.

I'm with J on all counts.

Karen MEG said...

Yeah, I'm OK, cuz my kids rock! So I must be doing something right, at least some of the time.

But if I was your little one; more than OK, that's for sure.

Jonny's Mommy said...

You know, I guess I am happy with all of that (boy do you sound like me)..but sometimes I do get depressed about how short and dumpy I am.


Nice post.

Pregnantly Plump said...

That's a great post and such a sweet picture! I have to admit that I never truly enjoyed any of my jobs after I graduated college. There were always major issues. This has been the first job where I've been very happy and satisfied. It helps that my "boss" is great at letting me know when I've done a good job.

Kristen said...

Love it!!

That was too cute!

Kathryn said...

Your poetry rocks! :)

A Buns Life said...

For a minute there I thought you were writing about me....but then I realized you were talking about yourself. Silly me. :) You rock at this mommy gig, to hell with everything else!!

Carol said...

Loved that post.

Yeah no matter what we think of ourselves our little ones think we're brilliant.

Well unless we say no, or put them on the naughty spot of course.

This was beautiful.

JO-N said...

This is such a cute post and the photo is awesome.

Elaine A. said...

I am except for the thighs but I don't think those are ever going to change (damn DNA) so I just need to learn to accept it, huh?

Nice post...

Veggie Mom said...

LOVE the free verse! My bloggy friend Melissa B. over at Scholastic Scribe did an Ode to her Birkies about a week ago. BTW, my kids have ended up WAY smarter than either me or The Hubby. And nicer, too! :)

April said...

I'm more than okay with it! And that's a great pic.

Rachel H. said...

I was just talking to my sister about this...I feel like I am finally to the point of being OKAY with who I am, and what I am doing. I just don't know why it took so long! :)

Monica said...

What a beautiful poem about the little guy!

Anonymous said...

I am so NOT getting a blog to do this. Just so you know. You can't talk me into it (like you talk me into everything else).

I'm just commenting because J is super duper cute and I can't believe he's gonna be 1.

My first comment on your blog, L. Do I win a prize?

Stella said...

What a wonderful post.

You know? Some days I am. Others, not so much.

I often wonder about others and this question. I also often wonder about my husband and that question. Does he ever question himself in the same way?

Colleen said...

most days I think I'm okay with being me. there are those days that I'm really NOT okay but thankfully they are relatively short-lived.
