|You don't have to be perfect to be an awesome parent.|
It is road trip season again. This means, if you have more than one child and you are driving more than ten feet down the road, you will hear fighting in the car. Siblings tend to find anything to pick on each other about. The husband and I can vouch for this first hand. We have also found an amazing way to combat it.
First and foremost, I have the up most respect for housekeepers. I used to run my own cleaning business for years before I decided to trade it in for the full time, stay at home mom gig. I really do not know who has it easier. I know who gets paid better, much better. The stay at home mom job is fulfilling, but most days it is thankless and there is no time off.
I am sitting here in my living room looking at a room that was clean twenty minutes ago. Since then, youngest child has force fed his Little People bananas, strewn cars on every flat surface, and gotten into the Play Doh I begged middle child not to leave down last night. This was because mommy needed to run to potty, and I really thought a banana would keep youngest child occupied. I was not wrong.
