Facing the Tough Moments is Making Me a Better Mom

As parents, I think we all have the child who has the power to bring you to your wits end in a matter of seconds. The one that makes you want to be a better mom 8000 times a day.

This does not mean that they are a bad kid, that you love your other child(ren) more or that you are a bad parent—it just means that their personality clashes with yours sometimes and you go from 0-100 before the spilled milk even hits the floor.

It wasn’t until I stopped delegating parenting to my significant other when  I was at my most frustrated that I started to reap the benefits. Facing the challenges makes the results so much more rewarding.
