I would never take pictures of them, say, in bed watching movies on the iPad, because moms like me simply do not have time for them to watch movies. We are far too busy with our Montessori learning activities. And if we ever DID watch movies, we would do so with properly styled hair.
I am so thankful that I’m the kind of mom whose children are ALWAYS smiling… never mad at the world, hauling around naked baby dolls.
3.) Cereal is no way to start your children’s day. They are worthy of a hot meal and YOUR home cooking.
4.) By all means, take pictures of your little treasures. With a good camera. Do not rely on your husband to send you morning cell phone snapshots while you’re at work. By all means, be at home with your little ones! And take the pictures yourself! Otherwise, the composition of the photos might be less than perfection.
5.) And the final rule of being a perfect mother is GRATITUDE… thank God often for what a perfect mother you are.
(And then bust out laughing at how ridiculous that is!)
