A mother is a biological and/or social female parent of an offspring. Because of the complexity and differences of a mothers' social, cultural, and religious definitions and roles, it is challenging to define a mother to suit a universally accepted definition.

It was this new definition of myself that brought me into this group. As a woman who always was focused on career and not creating a family, I had become a “Mother” and a “Step Mother”. I had so many questions about my new baby and upon joining Moms group I now had an endless supply of advice. We are all different mothers with different mothering techniques however the goal is the same, to raise happy, healthy, socially conscious, kind, wonderful children. Hopefully with our wits still in tack at the end.

Every person has a different relationship with their Mother, some good some bad, some indifferent. I am blessed to have a wonderful relationship with mine. Although I did cause her a fair share of heartache and despair she loved me all the same. Watching me fumble through my mistakes and bad choices yet never giving up on me.  She is the person who has always been there and never turned me away. EVER…that would be my definition of a mom….Dale Rudd my mom.

So when I look at what kind of mom I want to be to my children I don’t have to look far. I have 7 sources of inspiration that live heartbeats away and 1 that is off in Australia.
