Being a first time mom, I found I really had no clue what I was doing. I read a lot of books before, but come 2 a.m. when that newborn would not sleep– it all went out the window. I was just surviving.
As our son nears the one year mark, I feel more confident in being a parent. So far he is still a live and one happy kid. I have found that there is so much grace in parenting. They do not come with a manual, but we slowly figure it out and adjust.
I am realizing when I know better, I do better. For the things that I did not know and still don’t- there is grace. It is all part of the journey. We cannot beat ourselves up. We are growing and learning too just like those slobbering minions that follow us all over the house.
‘Whatever that means…’ Motherhood does not look the same for everyone. Moms can be so offended by differing parenting styles. You know what I am talking about.
Our parenting styles may be different, but at the end of the day I can almost guarantee each mom wants the best for her children. I know I do.
