You’re doing great. I promise.

If you’re anything like me, you’re pretty sure you’re messing up this parenthood gig. Oh the conversations our kids will have with their future therapists…. it’s overwhelming to think about, right? But guess what? We’re all just winging it and doing our best. No one has it all figured out.

Good news: those crumbs you’re constantly stepping on, wee-soaked bedsheets you’re washing, and noses you’re perpetually wiping all point to the same thing. You’re doing the damn thing. You’re meeting their needs and showing them love.

Parenting rarely feels glamorous or illustrious. You might be surprised, however, to find that photos of you actually parenting your children tell a very different story. There’s an abundance of beauty to be discovered in the mundane moments.
