I feel like I’m finally starting to become the mom I want to be.
You know the type.
The patient, calm, involved mother you always pictured yourself being.
I’m working at it. It’s a lot of work. A lot of reminding myself “I’ll miss this when it’s gone” and “this too shall pass”. A lot of deep breaths and mommy breaks when I start to lose my cool. It takes a lot of time and energy and conscious thought.
But I’m getting there.
On my way to becoming the Mama I always dreamed I would be.
(Hopefully I’ll be totally there before all my kids are grown 😉
