Do you ever have days as a mom where you think man, I really stink at this job? Today is one of those days. Caring for Rigby is really easy- I feed him when he's hungry, put him to bed when he's tired, change his dirty diapers and love him in between. At 2 Porter is a little more work and honestly sometimes I'm not sure I'm cut out for the job. I'm pretty sure I let him watch too much TV, eat too much junk, I don't get down and play with him enough, I give in too easily which just encourages his whining, I get short with him too quickly, my initial response is most often "no" even if there's no reason for it, I don't teach him enough, and I feel like he can get whatever he wants - by like 7 he's going to be walking all over me. I don't want to be one of those moms. He really is such a wonderful child but he is STRONG WILLED and he is SMART and he is ARTICULATE and the combination is sometimes a challenge. I don't want to be hard on myself because as moms we do our best but I really think there are a lot of areas that need improvement.
Welp, tomorrow's another day.
