I don't know that I've ever given myself a label. My children have taught me there is a season for everything and I just have to figure out which season I'm in and act accordingly. I can't force the season by {insert any parenting activity} anymore than I can bring on winter by wearing snowshoes in August.
I love the mommy label Even on the most.frustrating.days like today!

Awwww,Thanks. I don't feel like it a lot, but I'm working on changing it. Yeah it's sad that people do that. But that would be the extreme few, and like a PP said it comes along with the mentality that if you don't do it X way then you are unattached and not as caring. It's sad that people actually think this
