When your children are struggling, you’re either a good parent to bad kids, or a bad parent to good kids. I mean, parenting really boils down to those two options and I think I speak for all when I say I believe BOTH to be true, on any given day. I don’t claim to know what I’m doing. Every age and stage requires a different solution. But, I do know I give this parenting shit my all. I sob in the dark, alone worrying over these kids. I brag to anyone who will stand still long enough to listen about these kids. I’ve sacrificed more than healthy for my heart and mind to support these kids. When it’s good, my heart nearly bursts with love and pride. When it’s bad, I replay every decision I’ve ever made, thinking somehow I can pinpoint exactly where it all went wrong.
There is so much uncertainty in parenting. You never know what your children will respond positively to, until you try. But one thing is certain, when the sun rises in the morning, I still love my sons and they still love me. And that is enough to motivate me to keep trying. Sending love and light to all the parents out there doing the damn thing. #parentlife #momlife #mommylife #mamalife #bawsemom #singleparents #momof3 #momofboys #twinmom #hardestjobever #mythreekings #lovesofmylife #positivevibes #leadbyexample #teachthechildren #hanginthere #leadwithlove #kids #children #kiddos #youngins
