At the end of every day I wonder, how did I do today?
Did I tell you no too many times, did I put you in time out for something stupid, did I make you smile enough, play with you enough, practice colors and shapes enough, talk to you enough, let you watch tv too much, give you enough healthy food…Am I failing? Is there something I should be doing right now that maybe I’m not?
Being on the other side of the world from friends and family since before he was born has been tough. No breaks, no suggestions, no advice. (Except google in the occasional emergencies of course).
Sometimes I just wish we had someone here to tell us, you’re doing great, you’re doing everything right, he’s right on schedule…you’re a good mom.
