Although my husband tries his best to share parenting responsibilities with me, the type of work he is in gave me no choice but to take the lead parent role. Although I truly enjoy every moment I spend with the minis, there are still some days when I feel like I’m an epic fail at parenting.
I often find myself asking: Am I cut out for this? Am I doing it right? Are my kids growing up okay? I often wonder as well what my kids think about me, especially during times when I turn into The Hulk.
Then I saw this video:
I got curious so decided to ask my daughter what she thought about me–being the mom who juggles parenting, homemaking, and work. Does she think I’m not giving them enough time? Read on…
Me: K, what do you think of Mommy?
The Princess: Hmm. You are super duper ka-duper great, Mommy! You’re the best Mommy ever!
One sentence and I found myself holding back my tears. Oh my goodness!
Me: What do you like about Mommy?
The Princess: You take care of us! You give me food. Lots of yummy food! And you give me a bath when I’m stinky. You’re the best, Mommy. I want to be just like you.
Moms and Dads, don’t be hard on yourself. There will be times when you’ll feel like you’re not being the best parent in the world, but always remember that you will always be the best parent for your child.
My Kid Just Said documents the heart-warming, silly, and sometimes scary conversations with our minis. Kids do say the craziest things, right?!
