- Once my son is born, I don't want to NOT shower everyday because I'm too busy sleeping or taking care of him. Afterall, who wants to eat off a sweaty stinky plate? NOT ME! Therefore, I hope I can at least shower, or spongebath, enough to de-stink this new Mama. I wouldn't want to eat on a dirty plate and I'm certainly not going to make him do the same.
- I don't want to be one of those moms who doesn't do something because SHE doesn't feel like it. I want my child to have many different experiences and be able to explore the world and I don't want to hold him back because I am to lazy or don't feel like doing it.
- I don't want to be one of those moms who is afriad to let their children participate in life. I want him to get dirty and be happy. If it means ONE more bath during the day, then so be it. I don't want to hold him back from what could make him happy, even if we do have to sacrifice a few skinned knees and a few hundred boxes of band-aids. It's all part of being a kid and enjoying yourself.
- I don't want to be one of those moms who doens't let their child participate in activities or sports because she's afriad that he's going to get hurt. Now.. I know. This one isn't going to be easy, letting him go and be a rough and tumble kid.. but I want him to experience all that he can.
