|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.
You have taken your time to read my blog, so I probably owe you a bit of insight into who I am. My name is Tre, and first and foremost I am a mom. Some days are better than others, but they are all perfect in their own way.
The husband and I live a pretty normal life. If normal means raising a teenager, a nine year old, and a toddler. It's chaotic and fun. I gave up trying to be a perfect parent somewhere around the time my first child had his first birthday. It was too much work and I was too stressed out all the time. I was missing all the fun I should have been having. I stopped listening to everyone else's opinions and quit reading all the parenting books. I listened to my own instincts and did what I thought was right. Granted, I am still super Type A so fun for me is organizing bookshelves with the kids. Finger paints and things of that sort make mommy take a time out (some days with her favorite wine glass).
