This week I haven’t been on my mom game. I’ve lost my temper, been a jerk, apologized, and beat myself up over my shortcomings. I’ll get over it, but more importantly so will my kids. I haven’t been the best mom I can be, but I love my kids and I’m gonna keep on being human and learning from my mistakes.
I always tell Put Pie, my eldest, that she made me a mother. She loves it when I tell her that. She seems to glow with a bit of pride at the sound of it. I watched this video, which is actually an ad, and loved it because, well, it is just exactly how I feel about being a mother.
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
(don’t forget to add “in bed” at the end, if you are so inclined):
You can’t always be wonderful.
