The Guilty Days {The Ordinary Moments}

 This little one is growing up so quickly and as the years go by I start to get worried at how fast it is speeding past.


Lately I have struggled with Moo’s moods.. Her temperament is s different to H’s and sometimes I find it hard. Parenthood Is hard. I put her to bed at night and feel terribly guilty about things that have happened throughout the day. Me and the husband will talk about our feelings and worries of what the day has bought us. We talk about how we spoke to the children and how awful we feel, if we loose our temper. Sometimes  I want to go and wake her up and give her a big hug and kiss and just let her know that we love her very much. No one can prepare you for what motherhood brings. Its hard, on a daily basis and as Moo gets older it gets harder.

Its not all bad, mind. Moo is so gentle and caring and she is turing into such a wonderful confident little girl my heart beams with pride. She Is a talented, funny, beautiful 6 year old. Who I cannot believe turns seven this year!

When we have a bad day, I always remind myself of what she has become already, and its everything I could of asked for…

I am linking up with the lovely Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for her wonderful linky The Ordinary Moments

    It’s funny isn’t it, you get told quite a lot about the physical hardship of parenting, particularly in the early days, but not so much about the emotional side.but at the end of the day we are all just trying to do our best, and we all just human and somewhere in the middle of all that we are hopefully nurturing and nourishing our children – fingers crossed!

    I think we all have moments when we have just wanted to scream. I often want to sneak into my daughter’s room and whisper that I love her. Life gets busy and I feel quilts that I have less time with her during the day. Recently I had rim tried to hug her instead of completely losing it. If things are just getting out of control, my hubby and I just ask her if she needs a hug or just tackle her with a hug. Most times it has worked but every child is totally different. Please don’t feel bad. We are all learning and growing as parents. Thank you for sharing your feelings.

    At the end of the day, all you can do is look back and know that you did your best, debrief as you say you do and choose to learn from the things you didn’t like. We’re all learning as we go along, try not to feel guilty, as if your actions come out of love, you’re only being human, and when you feel you’ve mastered one stage, they start the next haha. The joys of this rollercoaster called parenting. I think you do an amazing job xxx #ordinarymoments

    I know the feeling Anna-Marie, in fact I wrote as much in my post this week too. It is hard and I feel guilty almost every night, mainly for not giving them my full attention or for losing my temper to easily. Mads is going through a great stage at the moment, bar she is non stop hyper which can make us all lose our tempers after a while as she doesn’t calm down. x

    Oh man its so hard some days – just a month or so ago I seriously felt like I was failing everyday, shouting, getting cross, hating being a mother lol okay maybe not that extreme but my 4yr old was NEVER listening, never behaving how id hope etc, it was so hard. I dont know if it changes or we just learn to be more patient and tolerant but It doesnt seem to be as bad! There is however something new to battle lol xxx

    Thanks for voicing how most of us feel! #ordinarymoments
