Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on October 23, 2013

Sometimes I feel like a failure as a mom. I lost my temper with my six year old this evening. She is stubborn and rebellious and has an answer for everything and when she doesn’t get her way she cries. But as I finally said goodnight to her tears came to my eyes as I wondered what I was doing wrong. Why did I feel like I was in battle instead of interacting with my child? She is as beautiful as she is stubborn and as kind as she is rebellious. She is super intelligent and has as many questions as she has answers for everything. She laughs so much and so hard as much as she cries when she doesn’t get her own way.
Some days I feel as if I’m doing everything wrong and then other days I can see in her words or actions the lessons that she is learning. It’s exhausting and tonight is one of those that makes me feel like throwing in the towel. But that feeling won’t last long, especially as I check on her and her sister as they sleep and say a silent prayer of protection and thanks for allowing me to be the mother of these two beings.
I’m exhausted but I’m blessed.
Tomorrow is a new day…whatever messes I made today I hope to clean up tomorrow.
