Sometimes it is obvious that I am just not the best mom. Maybe it isn't that I'm a bad mom, just a flexible mom. One who believes that the experience out weighs the possibility of getting sick. Jade wanted to play in the snow. We hadn't had breakfast yet, no baths and we were obviously still in our pj's. Jade just wanted to run to the mailbox and back again. She put on her ballet slippers- so she wasn't barefoot. I let her run to the mailbox and back again. She was cold and wet, but extremely happy.
