Every girl who becomes a mother instantly appreciates her mother more, but I can’t tell mine that. I can’t ever send a…
“thanks for putting up with me” text or a “how did you do this?!?” call.
On particularly hard days at home with three babies I sometimes think of her and try to be as patient as she was and to see the light through the dark like she did so well. I thank her in my mind and hope she can hear me from heaven.
Oh, the struggle of parenting! Trying to raise a healthy kid in today’s processed world is NOT easy.
There are food commercials glamorizing sugar-coated cereal, packaging made just for kids in pretty colors and designs, everyone and their mothers trying to pass off candy and “treats” to kids that don’t belong to them, fast food commercials showing off “must-have” toys…there are so many things working against a mom just trying to raise her kid to eat real FOOD.
