Change of Heart

I started writing a post yesterday about my failings as a mother. About how no matter what I do, my kids don't listen to a damn thing I say. About how the kids fight me every.step.of.the.way all day long. About how I feel like I'm failing my kids by not setting rules that they can actually follow. Or some such drivel.

Then I got this on Twitter:

MicheleDan@kristins4kids Remember--none of us are perfect parents. Think how hard it would be on our kids if we were. We just have to be good enough

great advice kristin. parenting is probably the hardest thing we'll ever do. i go through those times too when i feel like i'm not good enough, i think we all do. but, we get up each day and try again. i know right now it blows, but some day they'll all be in school and eventually they'll all be out of the house. i think about that sometimes when i am at my absolute limit and it makes me sad and i calm down. a little : )
