I'm not just a Mommy. I'm a wife.
I'm a child of God. I'm a woman.
I'm an imperfect human being. I'm ever growing in each path of my life.

The time that goes by without an interruption, or an explosion of
It doesn't matter what I'm doing.
Taking a bath.
"She took my doll."
"She won't get out of my room."
"She hit me."
"She... They... But can I... Why won't you... Why NOT?!?"
At the end of my rope I grasp, losing my sanity. I can't do this Mommy thing!! I can't be patient when I need to be. I can't use calm, yet assertive words to get my point across!!! I can't have a thought long enough to keep it as my own before it is robbed from me!!!
And just when I think I've had more than I can handle, one of them comes to me and says- out of the blue, in the midst of my chaos,
"I love you!! You're the BEST mommy in the world!!!"
And it all disappears. The frustration melts away, and I am suddenly refreshed with more will, and more strength to live up to what they believe to be true.
