You might have some days like that. But if you are like most of us - those days will be very few... and very far between...
There are going to be days when breakfast - and maybe lunch too - is dry cereal or a peanut butter sandwich. Some days that might even pass as dinner as well. If you can actually get them to eat anything without resorting to force feeding.
There might be days when you're not sure you'll be able to find the washing machine behind the pile of dirty laundry. When your kid can practice his or her writing skills in the dust in your coffee table.
Days when the t shirt without spit up stains and yoga pants are what passes for high fashion on your life. When you find yourself struggling to remember your last shower.
When you let them watch one more episode of that cartoon just so you can sit still and rest for a couple of minutes. (or finally get in that shower mentioned above)
Days your little sweetie is squirmy, whiny, or demanding at the store. Maybe he or she even has a full blown temper tantrum.
When bed time is a struggle you're not sure you're winning.
Sometimes you're probably going to lose your cool and raise your voice.
But here's the thing ... that's ok! It doesn't make you a bad mom. It makes you human.
The only perfect mothers are the ones invented by television writers or our own imaginations. I promise you that even the mom who seems to have it all together has days when she feels like she's struggling. We are all just doing the best we can.
Stop trying to be the world's best mother - and just be the best mother you are capable of being today.
She's pretty awesome. (Just ask her kids)
