There is a blog I read called Zen Habits. I have been behind and found THIS OLDER POST to be a wonderful reminder to me… a mom… of the ability to stay a good mom to my kids. This particular post was written by a guest, Vered at MomGrind.
Here is a sample:
5. Be Patient. Raising kids is hard work. Kids are noisy, messy and incredibly demanding. Yes, you will lose your patience once in a while. I do. But for the most part, try to take a deep breath and see them for the small, helpless people that they are. I am not a patient person by nature, but motherhood has taught me to be more patient than I ever thought I could possibly be.
Take the time to go enjoy it.
