The other day I was reading one of my favourite Facebook groups and a post stuck out about mom’s having a hard day, this got me thinking about my own feelings on having those brutal days that never end and make you feel like the biggest failure on planet earth.
Let me start with the other day when my innocent 10 month old was just walking along our couch, which is a sectional and was bopping along and banged his face for no reason against the couch…well let me tell you I have never seen so much blood come out of a baby’s mouth!!! Total mommy fail, I felt like the worst mom in the world even if I couldn’t have controlled it. Later the same day he got his first black eye on a ride along toy in our living room, which again he bashed his face against…this made me feel like the worst mom ever like I can’t even control what goes on in my house.
We try our best to have control and be the perfect mom….NEWS FLASH….we could try the rest of our lives but it will never happen, but I am ok with that because my kids love me just because I am their mom and that is the best feeling in the world to me. Having a bad day doesn’t make you a bad mom!!!
Many mom’s question their parenting and really you shouldn’t because at the end of the day all the bumps and bruises are lessons learned, all the tears are an opportunity for a special mommy hug. I know these days make you want to pull your hair out, Ive been there and it sucks those days make you want to crawl into a little hole and drink a bottle of wine. But when you go to your kiddies bed, crib or playpen after they have fallen asleep…no matter how long it took…and you see their beautiful peaceful little faces dreaming away it will make your day melt away and know that tomorrow is another day and anything is possible!
Best advice I can give you mom’s is call a friend or family member and take some time to yourself if you can’t wait for hubby to get home, have a bath, take a walk but most of all………drink some wine!!!
And Just remember……………..
