I Can Be Happy With A “B”

in Parenting

I could not have read two more perfect posts today.  My husband (dad, brothers, mom) are always telling me to mellow out and relax with the kids.  I am constantly micro-managing them and it’s really a bit insane.  One because they are really good kids and two….well it’s just insane.  It makes me high strung as I watch their every move or am I high strung because I watch their every move.  I use to think it was because my kids are clearly adopted and I didn’t want to seen as a “bad” parent.  I am totally capable of letting them be kids and relaxing at the park, etc.  But sometimes, also know as meal-time, I get a bit over-bearing.  The other times when we are in public (grocery store, zoo, etc) I can be a bit controlling and hyper aware of every move they make.

I am leaving on a business trip today and I need to relax and come back ready to be a “mellow” parent and a bit more type B and way less type A.  Because my kids and I deserve a break.

I’m constantly trying to remind myself of this. Letting go of the idea of perfection is soooo important, especially when trying to balance family, work, school, and your own personal life!
