Day 3: Yes, I am behind a day again! I am inspired by Renee Ho to write this today. I have been struggling a bit with patience with my son. You know the saying… “Patience is a virtue”… Well it’s not necessarily one of my virtues. Most days are great and I can’t be fazed and then there are those days where every little challenge pushes me over the edge and all of my parenting skills are put to the test and I find myself being a yeller… It’s not the mom I want to be, even as I am yelling I am aware of how rotten I am in that moment. I will always apologize and promise to him as well as myself that I’ll do better next time… sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. When my children grow I don’t want their good childhood memories to be clouded by my shouting. I am a work in progress just as my children are. Just because I am an adult or a parent doesn’t mean that I am done growing… My intention for the new year or better yet, the newer me is to be more patient, yell less and love more.
