A lot of the time I am referred to as “Super Woman” or “Super Mom” so I am writing today to set things straight. I am a Mommy to 5 very adorable children whom I love dearly and would do just about anything for.
However, I am NOT perfect! I have many flaws. There are times when I wonder what in the world I am doing. I am so behind on a lot of things that catching up is such a huge hassle and so I avoid it.
I yell way too much, my house is a disaster, and I have failed miserably at being a partner/mother. I can’t seem to get organized anymore which just adds to the mess. My vacuum doesn’t work so if you can imagine me sweeping the carpets, to keep things out of Princess mouth, that’s what I do….
I hardly ever make my kids eat their veggies, in fact they are quite the picky eaters, so picky that I end up either making 2 meals or just sticking straight to meals I know they will eat. My children do not listen to me, they do not clean and when I made them clean the oldest ran away, when I found him I yelled and told him horrible things could have happened to him. I thought that I was at least teaching them to be open and honest with me but that blew up in my face this week when my oldest lied not once but twice about some really big things. I made him cry, I really made him cry. I threatened him with jail-time because I am a horrible mom.
My 7 year old has emotional problems (he’s been through a lot, mainly because my dumb butt didn’t leave my ex-husband sooner than I did), My 5 year old has some sensory issues, that are hard for me to deal with.My 4 yr old told me he didn’t want to go to pre-school so I let him stay home…for a week. My 2 yr old is in speech therapy AND he broke his nose and I have no idea how he did it, because he still doesn’t talk so much. And finally there is Princess Dot… yes, I have even failed with her! She fell down the stairs this week. If all that doesn’t scream failure then I don’t know what does.
I do try my best to be a patient and loving mother but obviously my best is not good enough and I have these huge trials to overcome. I may not be a Super Mom but I do have some Super Kids that I adore!
So I’m hoping by posting this and being completely honest with you all you will see that I am a very normal person with some major hurdles and problems just like a lot of people.
