My baby got Leader of the Month at school today.
She told me the night before. She’s a work in progress. Is my kid the only one that waits until the night before or on the way to school to tell them anything?
I struggle a lot with parenting because I like to do things right. I like to know that I am doing things right. I like to know that I am making the right decisions, that's the thing about parenting. There is no right way. You just do the best you can, and pray your kid comes out okay.
I think we all spend an immense amount of time trying to figure out parenting. We spend the better part of our time trying to get it right. Trying to figure it out, trying to do the best we can for our children.
Being a parent is by far the hardest thing I have ever done in life. Many days I feel defeated by it all. I am my biggest critic. Definitely is the toughest job on the planet. It is hard being the chef, disciplinarian, chauffeur, cheerleader, coach and everything in between for a little person. Being everything to someone all of the time is hard work.
I have hard days, being a mother is hard. Most days are spent trying to do the right thing.
However, it is also the most rewarding experience. I wouldn’t change my little person for anything in the world.
To see your child excel in school is a feeling I cant describe. To see your creation excel makes it all worth it. These very seldom reminders that "you got this."
It's reassurance that bed times and imposing vegetables, though sometimes difficult, are worth it.
I am not perfect, neither is my child.
We are a work in progress. Today was reassurance that we are going in the right direction.
