rise and shine mama
I never dreamed about a big white wedding, but I always dreamed about my kids.
Not a day goes by that my heart does not swell with love, that I do not look at my kids with wonder, that I am not thankful that this is my life.
I am a good mom but some days are hard.
Today is one of those days.
The whining is making me crazy.
I am calm and a consistent but today I am feeling neither.
I walked away from my whining five year old and told her that I needed a moment. Just a moment.
She followed me.
Really, why would you follow me. Just give me one moment, give me a chance to breathe and compose myself. So that when I talk to you, I can be kind and mature and not sound like a barking dog or a five year old.
I don't know the right reaction. I barked, she barked.
I don't know a perfect parent or a perfect child. I don't have all the answers, I wish I did but I don't.
Some days are better then others, it is only nine in the morning and today still has a chance.
Today will be a good day, we will get there.
My kids have a good life, I have a good life.
