A Promise to Myself

"I'm an awful mother."
"I feel like a bad mom." 
These are things I've caught myself saying and feeling a lot lately. 

I'm a bad mom because... 
I feed my toddler far too much junk food
I let the tv be on all day, far too many days
I don't play enough with my kids
I don't do crafts or fun things from pinterest
We don't go outside enough
I get frustrated easily and am impatient with my children
I've screamed and spanked...
The list goes on and on

I know I'm not the only mom who has said she's a bad mom, feels the same way I do. 
I'm not the only mom with those things on her list of mommy failings. 
I find it sad though that instead of building myself up, I am tearing myself down.
Calling myself a bad mom isn't going to help me.
Honestly, I feel like it makes me worse as a mom when I do that. 
Instead of saying, "I'm a bad mom," I will say, "I can do better." 

So, if you're feeling like a bad mom, realize more than likely you aren't and do something about it!
Realize you can change, you can do better! That's what I'm promising myself!

  1. Pinterest shows cute crafts but what they DON'T show you is having to take kids out and about to get said items to do crafts! :-) Don't sweat it. You are a good mom no matter how many crafts you do :) And we watch TV here too-- its WINTER and this spring it won't matter when we spend it all outdoors.
