Yup......that's what I try to do.
Some days are harder than others. Things don't go as planned, you didn't get enough done, the kids are acting out to the extreme, but I just keep going. You have to.
I just had a conversation with my oldest last night. It's a struggle to get him to do homework or projects. (Been there before, and it's biting me back!) He also just started little league. Practice times are 2 hours 3 days a week. I'm trying to teach him how to plan ahead with homework so he can balance his time. Then if there is a project on top of that.......Ugh! I'm not one for projects, I admit that. I loathe them!
Anyway, he goes on to tell me that if there is a day that he just doesn't have enough time to get all his homework done, then he'll just miss practice. I told him that wasn't an option. He can't just give up on something. A commitment is a commitment and he just needs to learn how to make it all work out. I then proceeded to explain that being a mother is hard work. Taking care of kids, cleaning house, making sure the kids have food, clean clothes, etc. I told him that just because something is hard, doesn't give you an out. There are NO quitters! Even though I'd like to run out of the house some days while screaming and tearing my hair out.......I don't.
I just keep on going.
