You ARE doing your best!

I know I cant be the only mom (parent) out there who has those break down moments when you just feel like you are failing completely. Dinner is burnt, your youngest wont stop crying, your oldest is now late for girl scouts, all while your head is pounding so loudly it makes you see spots. Yes, these days suck. ¬†You are not alone!! We all have those moment and we just need to remember that no parent is perfect, no child is perfect, and there is nothing in this world that is worth making you feel like that. Dinner is burnt, well it looks like cereal tonight, your youngest just wants one more glass of milk so he gets it. Your oldest is late for whatever activity it is, well better late than never. There are so many ways that we could stress out our lives to the breaking point. That point were you sit in your dark room and cry or the point to yelling and being hurtful to those who love you. That feeling, that stress wont go away but you have to know that you are doing the BEST you can and the BEST you know how to do. You cant stress over everything that happens because that will just tear you apart along with your family. Let the stress go, eat cereal for dinner, show up late, go to bed early and read your kids a bedtime story (don’t worry the laundry and dishes will still be there in the morning). Your family will not remember every burnt dinner that happened or how many activities they were late for. They will remember what a fun night it was eating cereal for dinner and all the different activities they were able to try out. They will remember you being there for them as the BEST mom you knew how to be.
