Just like Mommy

Today's 100 words:

There are days when I don't like how much power being a mom holds. When I see my kids mimicking me--especially the parts of me that I'm not proud of--it's like a spotlight shining down, showing me just how imperfect I am. I suppose that realization is a good one, as it highlights the areas I need to change, but it's heartbreaking as well because I don't want my kids to use my actions as an example. I have a short temper, and sometimes I have a hard time holding it back. I don't want them to be like me.


  1. we are pieces of our parents, good & bad. i try not to yell, but there are times when you just cant hold back. kids are great button pushers and patience builders!

  2. Button pushers and patience builders--that's for sure! Thanks for reminding me that I'm not the only one. :)
