Sometimes, I'm a better mom when I wear sweatpants.
When I wake up in the morning and throw on yoga pants for the day- I am willing to snuggle on the couch and read stories. I am more likely to clean my home as I don't fear bleach stains or spills.I will chase them around the playground and sit on the grass with them. I don't worry about wrinkles, stains, or tears when I wear sweatpants.

Sometimes, I'm a better mom when I serve breakfast for dinner.
Instead of laboriously making a well-balanced meal, I serve pancakes and waffles drenched in syrup. The kids love the "no vegetable" dinner and they gleefully eat crispy bacon with sticky fingers. We discuss their school days while flipping pancakes and I have the time to enjoy dinner without the huge mess in the kitchen.

Sometimes, I'm a better mom when I leave dishes in the sink.
Sometimes when I am not the perfect mom, I actually am.
