Being A Parent

mother looking at son

My blood is boiling and my heart is racing.

I can’t tell if I’m angry, disappointed, sad or all three.

Being a parent is so much harder than a lot of people think.

Explaining to a child the ways of the world and why mom can’t always be sweet

At times I wish my son knew just how much I love him, adore him, would give my life for him.

One day he will, but until then I try my best, my best to keep my cool, but remain firm in my stance.

To teach him how to respect, be kind, stand his ground, and to not say things he’ll one day come to regret.

Being a parent is beyond exhausting, yet gratifying so I have no regrets.

I am still working to be my best and learning as the days progress.
