I’m a Mother even When I Suck at It! (Fragmented Fridays)

8 Flares 8 Flares ×

This week I haven’t been on my mom game. I’ve lost my temper, been a jerk, apologized, and beat myself up over my shortcomings. I’ll get over it, but more importantly so will my kids. I haven’t been the best mom I can be, but I love my kids and I’m gonna keep on being human and learning from my mistakes.

I always tell Put Pie, my eldest, that she made me a mother. She loves it when I tell her that. She seems to glow with a bit of pride at the sound of it. I watched this video, which is actually an ad, and loved it because, well, it is just exactly how I feel about being a mother.

And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
(don’t forget to add “in bed” at the end, if you are so inclined):

You can’t always be wonderful.

    I just want to point that Put Pie also made your husband a dad. Good work for a baby.
    all the best

    Oh no, I knew I shouldn’t have watched that. I just knew if would make me cry.

    My grown children do not mention the times I lost my temper with them but they always talk about things like the times I made cinnamon toast when they were sick, fixed their bike instead of telling them to wait for Dad and the times I let them play with my make-up and help me paint the walls. Thank goodness:)
    That video made me cry too…

    Love the video, I’m going to put that up on Mother’s Day and I will link to you :)
    We all do the best we can do and sometimes it is very hard to be a mother. ((HUGS))

    Mothers are human. And that video made me all teary.

    Everyone has those kind of days. The kids have to know that not everything can be perfect all of the time.

    Beautiful video. I can’t help but notice that you avoided any mother reference in your fortune cookie.haha How about “Your mother always hopes you will stay out of trouble.”
