After a rather inconsistent beginning, I made a decision to write a new post every day. I make a concerted effort to have something new to share with you all, as short or long as it may be.
This space is a therapeutic place for me. While I sometimes struggle with topics or which words I want to use, I always know by the end of each post, it is exactly the way I want it.
I wish this was true of my parenting. I wish I could say that by the end of the day, I knew exactly what I did was right. I don’t intentionally do wrong things, meaning I don’t hurt my son in any way. I just question my abilities from time to time.
And yet, by the end of the day, Choo-choo tells me how happy he is and how he wants me to be happy, too. Despite all the disagreements, whining (sometimes from both of us), and even straight up disasters, my child is happy at the end of every single day.
I aspire to have the same mindset. It’s a new goal for me to set into motion. I will keep you updated on how it goes.
