I figure that I am a pretty decent mom most days.
Not perfect, but certainly not worthy of calling DCFS on.
But sometimes, I just think that I suck.
Sometimes, I can't handle it when the girls are whining over me fixing their hair.
Sometimes, I get annoyed when my boys tattle on each other.
Sometimes, I look at the food that I worked for an hour to prepare that the kids have "decided" they don't like and feel drained.
Sometimes, the bathroom toilets get a ring around them and I have no will power to clean them.
Sometimes, time-outs don't work on my kids and all I want is to be put in time-out myself.
Sometimes, I am brought to my knees... brought to tears... begging Heavenly Father to give me the patience and love that my children deserve.
Sometimes, I recognize painfully, that I don't have the answers.
So, mommies... what is the solution?
What do you to "be a good mom" when your children are working hard to bring out the devil in ya?
Sometimes, all I can think is "Good thing ya'll are cute! That may just be your saving grace!"
