Super Mom

Bad Mom / Good Mom

Sometimes I suck at being the good Mom.  Sometimes I overreact.

At least I know how to turn around and say ‘sorry’.

I suppose that makes me a good-enough Mom.

    • I think it’s important to be able to say those words. Many parents don’t, leaving the kid to feel it’s all their fault

  2. Me too. A lot! Guess it makes us all good enough then hey? We dont want our kids growing up thinking we (and them) never make mistakes…

    • I read that once. How kids cannot have perfect parents, because we don’t live in a perfect world. They will think they need to be perfect to be good enough and that’s not true. So being good enough, is okay, yet the guilt ….man the guilt is horrible

    Melany I think it takes a honorable person to say sorry

    Your boys are wonderful guys which in turn means you are doing a fab job

  4. I think part of saying sorry is teaching our kids that life isn’t always perfect and its not all going to be sunshine and roses all the time! Its a life lesson in itself!

    Well thats what I tell myself anyway :-p

  5. I’m a crap mom sometimes… but I DO say sorry and explain. I think it is important. It is not an excuse, but it does provide a reason and way to understand.

    I swore at my kids yesterday. 😦 It was wrong of me, but I explained that *I* was feeling irritable and snapped. It was my fault and not theirs and so I apologised.

    I think you are more than good enough.

    • ((hugs)) I know that you will never ever mean to swear at your kids. I think you are an amazing mother. I think your boys know it too

  6. I know you are an amazing mom. Because you care so much. Everybody makes mistakes, but being able to say sorry really makes your kids realize you’re human and that you’re trying too. Just like them.
    Sometimes I feel like I should be the one in timeout not them. 😛

    • Time out sounds great!…time alone…oh wait,…it’s not supposed to be 🙂 But yes, time-out for grown-ups are what it’s supposed to be. Time to chill and think.

    Showing regret and having the guts to apologize is one of the best lessons your kids can learn from you. Way to go, Mel.
