Being a mother is THE most fulfilling thing ever. I truly feel that way. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my child happy and nothing makes me feel more accomplished than when seeing my daughter excelling in life. However with parenting comes great responsibility. You are responsible for how that child’s life turns out. Their childhood experience lays heavily on your shoulders and their success as adults weighs heavily on your mind, day in and day out. So yes parenting is what I was born to do, but it is very difficult especially when trying to build a career at the same time.
Last week Leslie got a C- for the first time…ever. I was shocked and very upset. I blamed myself for not studying hard enough with her. I work late hours and often feel tired when i get home. I am definitely guilty of going through her homework in a hurry and not asking enough questions. So now i realize i need a better balance work/life balance. Leslie and I are going to work hard to get that C- dropped and getting that honor roll! My baby is so smart she deserves all the recognition in world and I will be better at making sure she gets to where she needs to be!
