What makes you an imperfect mother....

Obviously nobody is perfect, and I think as mothers we always make ourselves feel terrible for not being perfect at everything, at least I know I do, when really we arent alone, we arent the only ones who do something that we arent proud of.

So what is it that makes you an imperfect mother?

I'm a push over, I've been THAT mom that bought her kid a toy when they through a fit in the store just to get some peace. I've done a lot if things just to get peace when I'm having a bad day. But she also knows boundaries and does know the meaning of the word no

This too, and it breaks my heart when I realize it. When I'm angry at someone else Olivia has to deal with it


Quoting crystaldinae:

I lose my temper quickly and yell. I always sit and wonder afterwards why i yelled, sometimes over the smallest things. Also, when i feel that im "too busy" to take a few moments to play with my daughter. It doesnt happen everyday, but when it does happen, later im wondering why i didnt just put my things to the side for a few moments. I hate that feeling so much! Im working on it though.
