I do. Alot. But then I look at my friends who have kids that are older and don’t “need” mom as much and I am reminded that while it can drive you insane at times, its good to be needed.
Then I look at my friends who don’t have children and while I remember that time in my life with fond memories, it also seems sort of “empty” compared to my life now.
Yes, my house is now generally a mess and, really, why did I bother to mop that floor just to have another spill (and yes, even poop from time to time) making a mess on my crowning achievement of cleaning from the last hour?
Kids do alot. They bring out the worst in you and they also bring out the best. Nowhere else in the world will I get better smooches and hugs than from my son. And no one else in the world loves my horrible singing as much as my daughter.
So the next time you are falling apart at the seams, at the end of your rope or feeling like mom fail of the year….Take heart that we all take a turn and worrying about these sort of things is exactly what makes you a great mom!
