Good parenting... not at all.
A gracious God... MOST DEFINITELY!
This was a complete surprise this early in the school year. As most parents know, the summer slump IS REAL! And, this is a level 1 school!
And, I gotta admit I have not been the best parent lately - trying to maintain one business and start another, being married, and yada yada yada... I have been absent, A LOT.
Even getting them to school most mornings were filled with threats and intimidation, (from me to them); daring them to utter a word as I needed complete focus to navigate through traffic.
Then once getting them to school, I would break down and cry, jump out of the car, and curse my butt off.... OUT LOUD.
STRESSED!!! Why, because right now, while my insta feed may be filled with good to great positive posts about life, I'm in the thick of IT - trying to figure it all out.
My life is not balanced because my pendulum leans more to the things I NEED to put in place for our future. So, I am stressed, over-stretched and anxious most days.
I am missing friend time, fun time, and family time.... a lot.
So again I say my children's achievements, (this time), are not "good parenting". In fact, it is with the help of a great parenting partner and God's grace that covers us all!
