motherhood | a hug will do.
I would like to congratulate myself for improving over the last 6+ years. I have become better (not perfect) at closing my eyes. Breathing deep. And sometimes even escaping to a corner to calm my nerves. The guilt that piles up after yelling is depressing. I believe one of my (most important) jobs as a mother is to testify of my unconditional love. And well, yelling just doesn't fit into that equation, now does it?
I have learned that there are (usually) three culprits that contribute to meltdowns...
2. lack of sleep
3. in need of attention
And I have also learned the power of a hug. Because sometimes they just need to know (and feel) that you love them. That you love them despite the tears. The messy house. The bickering. I am their rock and they should know that.
