When I became a mom, a mommy friend of mine sat me down and said “you’re not gonna get an A in every category and that’s okay.”
Yesterday, I took my kids to music class and I could see that they all had food in their hair. During mealtime my kids have developed this habit of putting food in their hair. Typically, one starts it and the other two follow. Naturally, I tried to get the food out of their hair before class but it didn’t work. I didn’t have enough time. So I made a decision. I took them to class anyway, food in the hair and all.
A few months ago, I’m not sure I would have done that but my mommy friend was right. You are not gonna get an “A” in every category and it is okay. Sometimes as moms (parents) we have to make concessions just to keep it all together. The important thing was that they made it to class and got something out of it. My kids have a great mom and a great life, even if they have green peas in their hair.
