Thought I'm sure some of you would argue - after all, we're talking about moms here - there is no better mom on the planet than Beth.

Some days when I get home, she'll tell me that she had a bad parenting day and feels miserable about it. But I don't buy it. I have a feeling that her worst parenting day is far better than my best. I know it's not, but she makes the mom thing look easy. She's even in he temperament, quick with a unique and positive way to enforce a rule and fair when the rule gets broken. Me, well, I'm armed wi a quicker temper, I'm not nearly as innovative and I'm gasping for air after 30 minutes of solo parenting.

I make it look doable. Beth makes it look easy. There are many days I wish I was a better parent but never a day that I don't appreciate the mom to my kids.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day.

what you lack in even temperment and innovation (i myself feel like i lack the same things) you at least make up in eloquent ways of professing your love. happy mother's day, beth!

I know that Beth is very certainly the best Mia-Owen Mom on the face of the earth, just like mine is the best Heather Mom ;)

And this post to Beth was probably one of the best Mother's Day gifts you could give her... Very sweet.
