Is it just me or are you always questioning how much you do for your children. What happened to the days when three meals a day, a roof over your head and clothes on your children's back made you a darn good parent.
Now days there's all sorts of things you need to do and buy not be a good parent but to be the perfect parent. We have social media portraying unrealistic expectations and unattainable goals for most people which is apparently the in thing because everyone wants their seemingly perfect life.
I even question myself a million times a day, am I doing this right? Are my children feeling loved? Am I giving them enough time and attention? Am I spending too much time on my phone? Am I letting them watch too much tv? Should they really be eating this or drinking that?
But why? Why am I doing this to myself? Why am I constantly questioning myself when I have four beautiful, healthy and happy babies? Why am I constantly feeling guilty and second guessing myself?
What I should be telling myself a million times a day is yes you are doing that right because you have made a decision based on your motherly instinct which is NEVER wrong! Of course your children are feeling loved just look into their eyes and you will see it. Yes you are giving them enough time and attention because you are doing the best that you can with the time that you have. Who cares if they are watching to much tv every day is different just go with it. No you are not spending too much time on your phone you spend pretty much all the hours of the day investing time and energy into your kids if you need time to zone out then zone out! Stop worrying about what they are eating and be thankful they are eating it there are people starving around the world.
Everyday I am going to try and spend less time judging and questioning myself and spend more time loving and encouraging myself. I can't be perfect and I can't do everything right and I don't want to. I just want to do the best job that I can. I'm not going to compare myself to others instead I'm going to surround myself with people who inspire me and lift me up.
So have I answered your question? Are you doing enough?
