Why I (Think) I'll Be A Good Mom

Hopefully I'll be as good as my mom.

Why I (Think) I'll Be A Good Mom
Karlie Frazier

So most of you don't know this, but I am the oldest of four children and I feel like that has prepared me somewhat for what it's like to be a mom. Now I can't say that I am ready to be a mom because I don't even like to cook myself dinner or take myself to the dentist, but I think that if I needed to do it right now, I could. I'm not sure why I would have to become a mother, but let's just pretend that we've entered an alter-universe and I am now a mother. EEk!

The first thing that I would be prepared for is the arguing and bargaining. Now I know I was a terrible kid, you can ask my mother, but I sure knew how to bargain. I would do something we all liked to do when we were younger and any time we don't want to do something we've been asked to do, STALL. Dude, I was a good staller. I could lay on the stairs and I could pretend that I was doing what I was asked to, but as soon as I heard my mom coming near me, I would actually start doing what I was asked. I know for a fact that this was something that we all did as kids, so don't even try to deny it.

I also know how to deal with the constant losing of things. In my house, there are six people and I have no idea how my mother always knows where everything is, no matter whose stuff it is. My brother could ask her where a single shoe is and she would just know. I feel like that would be something I would be good at because I have a pretty good memory and I would be good at making something up in the case I actually didn't know where something was. However, I'm not very good at organizing things, so my house would probably be a mess.

I don't know if I would be good at the comforting thing because I've been told I don't really have a heart. I've been known to tell someone to suck it up if they were crying over something stupid or because they lost something. I'm not very good at the comforting thing, but I am good at the first aid bit. I am currently getting a degree in Public Health and I worked as a life guard for three years and have three younger siblings, so I think I know how to put on a Bandaid and make a boo boo not hurt. I'm also pretty good at coming up with songs about anything.

I think that I could someday be a good mom because I would never stop trying like my mom. I would maybe be as good as her if I try hard enough. I think I'd be good because I always dance in a store when a song is playing no matter who's watching. I will always play a game to make someone happy again and to not cry. I am pretty good at disciplining people and I am again the first of four children who has seen lots of different styles of discipline. I hope one day that I am a good mom like my mom and my grandma!

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
