I’m Watching You…Love, Mom

Read next

You are my children. You are my life. It’s my job to make sure you are safe and to teach you to make the right decisions and I want the very best for you. I want you to be independent and learn to make your own decisions, but please know that I am always here if you need help or direction. 

I trust you, but I know there will be times you try to sneak one past me. Guess what? I will know. Mom’s just know. Like it or not. Mom’s know.

I know when you “sneak” three granola bars and stand in the pantry to eat them.

I know when you “clean” your room by shoving all the toys under the bed.

I know when you don’t wash your hands after you go to the bathroom.

I see you when you pick your nose and casually wipe the boogers on your shirt.

I know when you are feeding your dinner to the dog.

I see you when you think I’m not watching and you sneak another piece of candy.

I know it is you that shoves millions of candy and food wrappers in the couch cushions.

I know you bring your Pokemon’ cards to school even though I told you not to.

I know what you are doing, even if I can’t see you.

These things may not seem like terrible things, but as you get older the choices will get harder and the consequences more severe. Just remember…you are my baby. I am the only person who knows more about you than you know about yourself. I worry about you every single minute of the day. I am so proud of all you are becoming and all that you already are, but remember…A mom always knows. So don’t even think about it. 

I’m Barrie. I’m sarcastic, vocal, & strong willed. I've married for 11 years and have 3 kids. Being a mom is the hardest things I've ever done, but so rewarding. I'm amazed at the chaos, laughs, & exhaustion of mom life. I'm on  Scary Mommy, Babble, ParentCo, Sammiches & Psych Meds,& ModernMom.
