Becoming Mama

The Parakeet truly believes to parent well you must make decisions, decisions about the kind of parent you want to be.  You must be mindful and not assume you always know what you’re doing.  She reads books and articles on the topic. She talks to other moms and dads about their philosophies. She keeps the Huz up late with her current inquiries.  She’s been thinking a lot about parenting lately, about the mother she wants to be, which led her naturally to consider the kind of child she wants to raise. 

The Parakeet would like to raise a boy who
thanks God for each day
is hopeful
seeks adventure
is kind to others
does not raise a hand in anger
thinks before he speaks
stands for the elderly on the bus
treats living things with respect
cares for his body
is responsible with the gifts he acquires
is ambitious in utilizing his talents
dreams
appreciates art
spends time in nature
loves his mother and father
honors his wife
surrounds himself with great friends
serves his community
and knows that he is an amazing and loved child of God

The Parakeet has read much about different parenting and learning styles lately.  She is working to create a lovely and loving environment in which Little O can grow.  The more she reads and the more she inquires among other parents, young and old, she has come to realize that to raise the boy she hopes to raise
she must become a person who:
thanks God for each day
is hopeful
seeks adventure
is kind to others
does not raise a hand in anger
thinks before she speaks
stands for the elderly on the bus
treats living things with respect
cares for her body
is responsible with the gifts she acquires
is ambitious in utilizing her talents
dreams
appreciates art
spends time in nature
loves her mother and father
honors her husband
surrounds herself with great friends
serves her community
and knows that she is an amazing and loved child of God

Then, she could be a Great Mama.
