The Perfect Mom?

Rachel here. I woke up this morning with this video posted to my Facebook. Bryan had a similar one for people who work in public accounting, and I remember how funny and TRUE it was. Do I understand the first thing about accounting? Absolutely not, but I understood the personal family issues that the characters were implying. When I watched "my" version of the video, I thought it was perfect, and I couldn't have done it better myself. It's funny because I started off just like "Barbie" ... wanting to be the perfect little mommy. Do I still feed my children organic food... as much as we can afford. Do I think breast is best... yep... but only if it's best for you... Reese was breastfed for 2 months, and I nearly died. Did I consider not vaccinating because of the fear of autism... because the internet told me... not completely... I desperately wanted to change our schedule but instead took a leap of faith and trusted our AMAZING pediatrician. Am I the perfect mom? No chance in hell. Do I always do what's best for my children? No chance in hell... they love goldfish too much. But I do spend every waking moment with them each and every day, and we do the best that we can. I think everyone will find the humor in this video whether you're like "Barbie" or "All American Mommy".
