As a parent, I have often felt the struggle of not being a good enough mom. I love my five children with my whole heart. As a mom I have hit the stage where the first part of my heart has left the nest and is making a nest of her own with her Husband and my first Grandbaby (arriving this winter). Now I am living at home with not one but four teenagers.
Today one of the four decided to play me against my husband to start a fight because she didn't want to do as she was told. I fell for it hook line and sinker. I went as far as calling my husband in tears because of the way she was acting. My husband, after listening to me cry and rant then called her and put his foot down. God I was stupid. Mom's know you are not alone in this, I swear I never felt so insecure. This child of mine played me because she didn't want to do as I asked plain and simple. She hit my insecurities because she wanted her way instead of doing what I needed her to do.
Then she started a fight between the hubby and me to get her way. I am thankful that the hubby is great at cooling me down. Remember mom's you are not alone in this struggle. We are here for you. Oh the fight in case you were wondering was over the fact that she feels that dishes are beneath her and she shouldn't of has to do them. That's why I am here. Yes, I said it that's why this all started. Because to her Mom translates to Maid.
