Mommy Wins and Woes
I absolutely love being a mom! Let me say that again- I absolutely love being a mom! Okay with that said- I am a tired Mama today! How many of your kids have growing pains? What did you do to help? I am begging for advice here!! My poor little girl is having a terrible time with her legs and I keep being told she will grow out of it. Which I know but it doesn't help when she wakes up crying at night because her legs hurt. I hate seeing her in pain and no one gets good sleep when it happens. And then we are all zombies the next day. Thank God for coffee!! If I could insert an IV of the stuff I totally would right now!
With Mother's Day right around the corner (and my birthday) I know a lot of us reflect on our children and what being a mom means to us. And that means taking the bad with the good (like growing pains). How many of us wonder if we are doing things right? If we are actually "good" moms? If we are absolutely and totally screwing up our kids?
Let me tell you right now- You are a fantastic mom! You are doing a wonderful job! Stop stressing those dishes in the sink, the toys on the floor, and the towels in the dryer. You are only one person!! And no you are not screwing your kids up by taking ten minutes to yourself, letting them eat junk one night, or stay up a few minutes late. Life happens. Just breathe and relax and don't let anyone else tell you what to do with your life and your kids. They are yours! You know whats best for them. Relax Mama! You are doing just fine! It doesn't matter if you are a working mom or a stay at home mom. We are all the same. We love our kids.
