This motherhood thing can be really hard sometimes. There are days I really feel like I have my ish together and I’m really rocking at my mom-ness. Other days I lay in bed after the kids have FINALLY fallen asleep and think about all the awful things that happened that day.
I shouldn’t have yelled at Huff the Tot like that.
I should have taken the kids outside.
Maybe I shouldn’t have allowed the TV to stay on for so long today.
Did I even read a book to them?
We had Chick-Fil-A for lunch. I should’ve cooked our meal and made sure there was a green veggie.
We can really beat ourselves up over the things we think we should have done, should be doing, or how we think our lives should look. Then we feel horrible and think we’re damaging our kids and we’re terrible moms. I had such a day Saturday. Then, I watched this video and it really put things into perspective.
I’m going to try to no sweat it when I give my kids crackers instead of kale, pop in Moana instead of trying to learn Mandarin like those “super moms” on Instagram, and realize I’m doing a great job just by being myself.
