This post is inspired from my mommy board. We've been coming up with ideas to get us all blogging more. So this is a post about what this quote means to me:

"As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person."

As a mother, I feel like its my responsibility to help shape and mold the person my child will turn into. I want to teach him right and wrong. I want him to understand its ok to be sad, and to enjoy happiness in little things. I want to Parker to learn respect and manners, and use them at appropriate times. I want to teach Parker how fortunate he is to have a huge family that loves him. I want Parker to understand that no matter how upset or mad I am with him, I still love him more than myself. I want Parker to see good in others.
This reminds me of another quote I once saw. "A parent's life is a child's guidebook." As Parker's mother, I feel it is also my responsibility to live the rest of my life in a way that I would want him to. I want to see my son become the person I already know he can be and I want to do everything I can to keep him on that track. He is MY world I and one day I want to be responsible for all his good

That is beautiful. I have the same hopes for my boys. Being a mommy is a huge life-altering experience. But, I wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything in the world!
