Let go of the stressing and striving. Let go of distraction and discontentment. Let go of chasing perfection. Your kids don't want perfect...they just want you.
Maybe if I’m just more prepared. Maybe if I start a little earlier. Maybe if I plan just the right back-to-school breakfast and after school snack. Maybe it won’t be a total shitshow.
Our happily ever after is far from fancy and not even close to glamorous...
Please God, help me be a patient mom.
One of my main jobs as a parent is helping my children GROW UP.
The truth is most of our lives are lived in the ordinary moments every single day with the people standing right beside us.
That's the ultimate goal, right? To do our very best and love them like crazy and just enjoy these fleeting Kid Years as best we can???
