What’s Something You Never Believed Until You Experienced It
I had a really hard time coming up with something for this one. This is what I found… I never thought that I would be a frustrated parent. Yep, I admit, I am human and a normal Mom. LOL!
I always wanted to be a Mother. Always wanted children. I just never imagined that I would lose my temper, get frustrated, or try to keep my children busy, so that I could have some quiet time. Well, it happened. Not all the time, more just once in a while. I find myself a pretty patient person. There are times though that I wonder if I am giving them time-out for the right reason, or am I over reacting? Am I loosing my patience because they are trying me, or is it my hormones? See a pattern here… I don’t want to blame them. I know they are little and I know that they are wonderful. They do try my patience from time-to-time though and I have to remind myself that it is okay. They are learning as I am learning. We really are growing together.
I really feel bad sometimes when I see a sad face on one of my little guys and I want to fix it and I can’t. What’s with that?! I should be able too. I always try my best. I think of myself as a pretty good Mother, pretty well-rounded in my beliefs. I want them to be the best young men they can be, without being to overbearing. I know that I have gone overboard sometimes, but I hope that they will remember me as a Mom that loved them more than anything when they are older. Why, because it’s true. What else would I want, then for them to be loved more than they could ever imagine. 🙂
