I am having a horribly Mommy failure moment.
For several reasons!
1. My children eat horribly! I tried so hard, I listened to those Gerber commercials, telling me that how my BABY eats now will dictate how they eat and the choices they make for the rest of their lives! Guess what.....I think they are right!
I tried so hard, I fed them all the right baby foods. I transitioned into all the right foods, and Thomas never did like a lot of vegetables. He never did like meat, unless it was a cheeseburger. He used to eat grilled chicken all the time. Now? NOTHING!
Christopher ate like a champ! He was my self proclaimed vegetarian until he ate a cheeseburger. But he won't eat chicken, unless it's that "guess you can call it chicken" chicken from Panda Express.....Yes I feed my 2 year old fast food, don't judge!
Well apparently now? They won't eat anything! The last two nights both my boys have basically gone hungry, because they won't eat their dinner! Mommy Failure Moment #1.
2. My 3.5 year old WILL NOT poop in the potty! He WILL NOT! And he knows when he has to go, he knows when he gets that urge because he disappers and gets all quiet!
Now I know he has issues, he's had chronic constipation since he was 6 months old, he's been on miralax every other day for the past year. It's not a matter of his stool not being soft, it's soft, he just has this fear.
His school is pressing me! He will be 4 in May, and once he turns 4 he can move into the pre-K class, and in the Pre-K class you can't NOT be potty Trained.
I've tried, I've read every stupid piece of literature on the internet about this, and I've done. it. all. And now? I got nothing. Mommy Failure Moment #2.
3. My child acts up, as most 2 & 3.5 year olds do, it's happens, so child is perfect! But apparently no matter what I do, it's wrong! LOVE THAT! And we'll leave it at only 3 Mommy Failure moments for tonight, even though I am sure there is so much more, my emotional state can't take anymore!
I've only been doing this mommy thing for 3.5 years, I don't know it all, I don't know all the answers, and I'm going to screw up, let's hope my boys won't suffer because of my failures!
What do you see as some of your mommy failure moments? Or maybe? You're the perfect parent and you can tell me what I am doing wrong?
