Accepting Imperfection as a Parent

Like all mothers, I have always wished to be the perfect caregiver for my child. In the time I  have spent being parent, I  realized that it is just not possible to be perfect! I was glad to read 10 Truths I Learned In 3 Years Of Imperfect Parenting, a post from one Mom who shared my exact sentiments.

Parenting will put you through a myriad of situations that will elicit a host of emotions within you! You should expect to feel anger, incompetence, guilt and resentment; but know that there will also be feelings of joy, love and pure happiness. Believe me when I say that you wouldn’t trade those beautiful emotions for anything in this world.

Being a parent will change your life forever. In my opinion the change is definitely for the better. Having children is probably one of the biggest responsibilities and most difficult tasks you can have in your entire life. Nevertheless, without a doubt, it is also the most rewarding and the most beautiful experience.
