You know those days where you question every decision you've made? Like, did I scold Nixon more than I actually loved on him today? Was I more short with him than usual because I'm stressed? Did I spend enough time with him without working? Am I making the right decisions today for his tomorrow?
Gaaaaah. Some days that #momguilt slaaaays me. And you know what? It's usually the guilt that is the worst part out of everything. Not that I may have been short or that I may have had to work a little extra today or that I don't know exactly what tomorrow holds, but the negative thoughts I have toward MYSELF. What is this teaching my son?
I'm grateful to Caleb (my boyfriend) for grounding me and helping me to see things from a different perspective. Realizing that when I focus on the positive, the best I can do is to be better tomorrow and use today as a learning experience to know that life won't always be perfect and because of that, it truly is all that we make it. So here's to tomorrow and being better moms just for making it to the next day 👊🏼
PS- every time I'm having mom-guilt, I scroll through old pics of us together 😩 (just me? 🤔😂) I cherish that we have these photos together through all the different stages. This one from when he was 3 is one of my favs 💗 Thanks @jessicajanaephotography for be such a bomb photographer and capturing this 😘 #kindredoak
