I'm always looking for a working definition of the "good mom". The definitions that float around in my head usually involve moms who are willing to do activities that go above and beyond the call of duty...going where no mom has gone before.
Take Jen at Diagnosis Urine
I read this post and just looking at the pictures created hives up and down my body. Do you see all of those little beans? I can't even count the ways that this scenario would go WRONG in my home. Beans Beans Everywhere.
I know a girl who had to be taken to the emergency room because she got a small object stuck in her...um...what's the appropriate word here. In her you know what. Yep, some brave medical resident had to dig that thing out of her inner workings...and she was 6. Ick.
Anyway, Kudos to Jen for going above and beyond. I'm inspired...but very scared to follow in her footsteps.
