I have been sitting her for several minutes wondering what to write today. It's my first day back to blogging off the top of my head since I had Andrej - yes, that cute little "chunk" up there...who is 3 months old already and 15 1/2 pounds. Aren't my boys just the handsomest boys you've ever seen?
Yes, so I've been sitting here running various ideas through my head, looking my topic ideas for Tuesday (because, you know me and schedules....even my blogging has a schedule!!) all the while avoiding the very topic on my heart.
Because it makes me feel too vulnerable. And yet I know so many others experience the same feelings.
At the end of the day, I lay Robi in his bed and wonder if I spent enough time with him. Am I doing an adequate job maneuvering him through the 2-year old phase with a healthy mixture of discipline and love? And I too strict? Too lenient? And I too preoccupied with housework?
In other words, am I am good mom?
It can be so intimidating sometimes.
But just when I start feeling really down on myself my son comes running up to me and kisses me on the leg and reaches his arms up for a hug...for no reason other than "just because".
And it's those moments I live for because they reaffirm the fact that no mom is ever perfect, every mom faces these same thoughts and feelings...
...and no matter how often we fail and fall flat on our faces on this path we call Motherhood, our kids still love us most.
And that's what's on my heart today!
