"Moms Who Should Be Famous" Feature - Meet birdiemom

We asked CafeMom's birdiemom to tell us a bit about herself and her daughter. Here is what she had to say:

It's a bird, it's a plane.... No, it's just mom.

I think all moms (well most moms) are superheroes by just being themselves. I mean we have so much unconditional love and our children look up to us. It's important to be a good role model mostly by being yourself and being genuine.

My daughter is 12 years old and in 6th grade. I think this is a tough age; she's looking to be more independent, but still needs structure, rules, and supervision. We have a relationship that helps her with her needs. We can chat about boys, clothes, her problems openly, but she still understands that I'm the adult and I try to do what's best for her. My daughter has a great role model in her step-mother too; she's a smart, fun, hard-working, fashionable, beautiful woman who is deeply devoted to her friends and family.

 I feel like I'm just a regular mom and a good person. I try to be as environmentally conscious as possible. We grow our own vegetables, we have a compost pile, we recycle, I breastfeed and cloth diaper my youngest (I just started cloth diapering) just to name a few. Not only do these things help our family save money, but I'm trying to help the planet (a little at a time) for future generations.

Everyday I wake up for my family. I love morning hugs and afternoon chats about the day. My daughter always has something funny that happens and I enjoy hearing her animated stories when she gets home from school. She's such a free spirit, and creative, it's so refreshing after being at work all day.

When I think of my role models, my dad and grandmother stick out. My dad is the nicest most genuine person you'll ever meet. He instilled in me a love for everything nature. We would go camping and "take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints." I look up to my grandmother because of the pure love and devotion she had for her family.  

How can you relate to birdiemom's story?

    So nice to get to know more about you!  We also grow a lot of our own vegetables, and I appreciate your dad's philosphy about taking care of Mother Earth.  Environmental awareness is so important.  plant a tree
