You are doing a good job, parents. Mom, you are doing your best even if you believe with everything you are that you can do better. Dad, you are doing your best even if you believe with everything you are that you can do better. You are doing a good job, parents.
Life gets infinitely sweeter with children and infinitely more debilitating. There are days when it seems equal and days when one out-weighs the other. You will get through this. Today this was your best. Tomorrow your best will be another level. Your best is not a bar that stays in one place. It moves. And thankfully! Each day we have a different level of energy, effort, ability and awareness to parent and to survive everything else. Be mindful of where that bar is. Be kind to yourself and know it will keep changing. And we are all going through it with you.
