Some Days I’m A Bad Mom

232323232-fp83232-uqcshlukaxroqdfv3-336-nu=335---53-;;7-WSNRCG=3;326-;285336nu0mrjSome days I’m a good mom – I feed you veggies & fruit

I keep my calm & don’t yell, even when we’re in a dispute

Some days I’m a lazy mom – I stop at Mickey D’s

I talk on the phone & sit around & park you in front of the tv

Some days I’m the funny mom – I am silly when I talk

You laugh at me when I tell jokes that begin with Knock Knock

Some days I’m the mean mom – I can’t help but scream & shout

You look at me with tears in your eyes when I send you to time out

Some days I’m a nurturing mom – I dry your every tear

I hold you close & comfort you & let you know that I am near

Some days I am the jealous mom – Tonight you like daddy more

I smile with a tinge of envy at the two that I most adore

Some days I am a patient mom – I answer every “Why?”

I take my time & carefully give you a well thought out reply

Some days I’m the frightened mom – I am scared almost every day

I ask God to please watch over you each & every night while I pray

Some days I’m the know-it-all & some I don’t know what to do

I am many different kinds of mother & all of them love you

  1. Beautifully and perfectly said and yes some days I am great mom and then others not so much and still yet this can vary from one minute to the next if you were to ask my girls.

  2. This is very true. We all try to be as close to perfect for our kids. Some days we get pretty close. I always try to remember that although we fear we scar our kids with one instance of us yelling, that is not the case. The fact that you try and care to notice when you are less then what you want to be means you are a amazing Mom. Raising kids is hard and exhausting, nothing worth anything is easy.

    This was just what I needed. I read this right after I lost my patience with my son. Oh, motherhood is a conglomeration of good, bad, exhilarating, and boring days. I just hope that in the end, the good outweigh the bad and that my boy knows I love him. Beautiful post 🙂

  4. I love it! Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful, and so encouraging! Moms aren’t perfect, but sometimes we think we need to be. This is such a wonderful reminder.

    I don’t think feeding your kids McDonald’s on occasion makes you a bad mom, it makes you a normal one.

    This is so wonderfully incredible! I’m glad I read it. I’m glad you posted this honesty. I know I struggle in the being a ‘different mother’ to Baby Boy. Sometimes I’m fully engaged in motherhood and active, sometimes not so much, other times I’m in between engaged and not. It’s all ok though and honoring all those different ways and times is a good thing to do! 🙂

    • Thank you very much for your kind words.

    • It cut me off before I could finish. Lol! I am the same some days I am all in with activities and reading to my child and then others I just don’t have it in me. The best part is they love us for both. 🙂

      • Life Breath Present says:

        Yep! That’s one of those either entry graceful things about motherhood. Our babies love us no matter what. Baby Boy is sure beginning to show some empathy, too which is pretty neat! 🙂

      • That is wonderful. Showing empathy at such an early age is a great sign. Sounds like he has a big heart.

      • Life Breath Present says:

        He has a huge heart! I’m glad to see it so young. I can tell that how Hun and I treat each other certainly has positively influenced Baby Boy, which fils my heart and soul with another kind of joy entirely. I feel like I am doing something right on this motherhood journey. 🙂
