"The Savior emphasized the importance of keeping records. And one of the most valuable records is the one you keep of your own life." Spencer W. Kimball

Epic Fail

Today was an epic fail as a mother...lost my temper more times than I can remember, check.  Kids went to bed crying, check.  Desi asked me why I get so mad all the time, check.  Lindsey stayed downstairs all night because of the crying, check.  Wyatt fell over several times while trying to stand on his own, check.  I stayed in my pajamas all day, check.  Charly screamed and cried more times than I can remember, check.  I told Charly to go away while I was on the phone because she was throwing a temper tantrum, check.  I feel like going to bed crying, check.  I feel like a mad woman who's losing her mind, check!  Why is it when I feel like I'm starting to do better, I realize how many things I need to do and all the things I need to work on?  The funny thing is when I think about how there are so many better moms out there, I realize I don't want a different mom for my kids because they wouldn't know all their likes, dislikes and quirks like I do and at the end of the day, my kids still want ME.

We have those days at my house all the time! Seriously! I'm sorry you had such a crappy day...next time bring everyone down here and we can have a party. Maybe the kids could play together and have fun since there'd be new people to play with, and we can do something relaxing!

If you never fail, how will you know when you are succeeding?

If we were all perfect mothers, what would there be left to learn?
! The great thing about being old is that the awful days are forgotten and you only remember your successes! I PROMISE!
