If you stopped right now and took a hard look at the kind of mom you've been this past week, would you be excited to be a kid that had you for a mom?
I stopped and thought about that today after having a particularly stressful day. Lately I always feel like I'm running around like the women in the Kathy cartoon, all frazzled and stressed out. Just taking care of the kids and house, but not being much fun at all. I find myself wanting a break now and then (I get a break from the kids about once every 3 months). And while every mom deserves a break now and then, the truth is my thinking about it daily isn't fair to my kids.
I know a lot of you are quick to judge and will bash me or pretend you have it all together. But, I'm sure quite a few of you need to do as I've done and take a long hard look at yourself and honestly see room for improvement.
