Parenting in general freaks me out. I want to be my best for my kids. Despite my best efforts, my kids will turn out. I like to remind myself that, and go to a parenting class.
Last week, as we were talking about the class, our daughter overheard us. She had an opinion about our parenting.
"Guys, I know you are good parents. Wanna know how I know you are good parents?".......
"I spend a lot of time in my room."
We laughed too hard together. It's true. She does spend a lot of time in her room getting a grip, and letting me catch my breath. In a calm moment, she was thankful and it was funny. It won't be funny next time I have to send her to her room, but it helped me not take myself so seriously.
