i want to be a better mom. . .

sometimes (ok - a LOT of the time) i think that I should be a better mom

i want to be a better mom

more patient, softer spoken, more energetic, more crafty, just plain old more everything. . .

i couldn't possibly love my boys more than i love them - i make a point to tell them every day how much joy they bring me.  being their mom has forever changed who and what i am for the better - forever.

even when i am yelling about the toys strewn all over the house (honestly, middle-age PMS is the WORST kind of hell) I am loving them and thanking God for bringing them into my life.

and that's why i want to be a better mom. . .they deserve the best - and i know that isn't me. . .i could do better - I WANT to do better. . .but changing habits is not always easy.

do you struggle to be a better mom?

catch you soon -

  1. More CRAFTY???!! You couldn't be more crafty unless you changed your name. :)

    Seriously, though, I think so many of us moms struggle with these sorts of issues, Hillary. I know I certainly do. The problem is (among many), that the expectations we have for ourselves - from ourselves, but also from what we perceive a "good mom" to be (i.e., June Cleaver) - are unrealistic at best and impossible at worst.

    All we can do is the best we can. And from where I sit, you're doing that incredibly well.
