When it comes to parenting, chances are you either feel like you are acing it or failing miserably. Sometimes there is an in-between area in which we are satisfied with just getting by, but those moments are rare. Unfortunately, most moms (myself included) feel like they are failing more often than succeeding.
So let me just remind you that you aren’t failing as a parent, but that you are actually raising little humans that will be successful and amazing people!
Strangers tell you your children are so well behaved.
Don’t laugh, mama. You’ve probably been there.
In the middle of the store and your toddler is asking every question known to man while standing up in the cart (usually while it’s moving) just trying to secure your medal for terrible mother of the year by falling out of said cart and creating a scene you just might die of embarrassment from.
The baby’s face is bright red and crocodile tears are flowing because you forgot her favorite pacifier and how dare you give her this ridiculous imitation just so you can buy her overpriced formula in peace?!
You finally get to checkout and an eerie calm takes over your children. Ha… As if that would happen. The baby stops crying, at least, and your toddler starts chatting up the cashier. Then it happens.
