You know what’s hard as a mom? Giving yourself some credit. For every time we think “I did a good job today” there are 50 other times we threw shade at our parenting. It’s like “Yay! Maisy knows an animal sound!” …. Wait, should Maisy know more animal sounds. Did Owen know animal sounds at this age? I cleaned too much today and ignored the kids. But yesterday I didn’t clean. Will the kids develop correctly if the house is a mess? And so on and so on.
Today I say, we give ourselves a compliment. Here’s mine:
I teach Owen things and give him lots of hugs.
I make Maisy take naps so her brain can develop correctly and so that she’s less grumpy.
All these things make me a good mom!
