The past week or so have been extremely hard on me. My sweet little girl has became really sassy.
From the small stuff to larger stuff, it has just seemed like she was having so many temper tantrums.
From morning to evening, she was screaming or crying and I just wanted to sit down and cry with her. I didn't know what to do, I didn't want her crying and mad. I didn't want her screaming and throwing things all over the house or smacking and biting me. I just felt completely defeated.
Then, I begin to really think and I had prayed for this little girl for so long. I should celebrate these moments in my own head of course because these tantrums meant I had this precious little girl God had given me the responsibility to take care of. I get to love her through the good times and all the very trying times. I get to spend each and every day with her and you know the bad times will happen but I get repaid with her hugs and kisses. I get repaid when she does something totally amazing and she looks at me and smiles the biggest smile.
There will be many more days that I will feel beyond defeated, that my mind will be more exhausted than my body. That I will want a mommy moment to just sit and be.
The great thing about being a parent is that you are helping mold this little child to be someone, to help them along the way. I worry sometimes that I am or that I will fail her but I know that God doesn't give me more than I can handle. I am beyond blessed that her daddy is in our lives and he helps out.
Parents of multiple children and single moms, you are beyond incredible for everything you do. Mom's like me who have one child and are just doing the best you can with them, you too are doing great things.
Every day won't be sunshine but there will be more sunshine than rain.
