Sometime I Want to Quit

I like to blog about good things. 

I like to encourage, challenge, and remind other Moms they aren’t alone. 

I like to remind myself. 

I try not to rant and carry on about the things I feel negative about. 

I don’t intend to start now. 

But I do want you to know that sometimes, I just want to quit. 

I hate even typing those words because I’m not a quitter. 

I don’t intend to start now. 

But sometimes, the want is there. 

Like the other day when I told y’all how we were teaching our kids to be thankful. And then a spirit of unthankfulness and complain-with-every-breath swept through our house. It lurks its ugly head more than I care to admit. 

Or when I shared my Advent calendar ideas, I didn’t expect my kids to whine when not all the the activities were fun and all about them! (See what I mean?) 

I wanted to beat them. 

I don’t intend to start now. 

My life is messy. It’s not the clean, crisp (edited) life you always see. I yell (!) sometimes. I cry and whine and dream of a full time Nanny. At times I feel guilty and sad and completely unequipped. 

And even though it may sound pathetic, sometimes I want to be what I blog. I set the bar high, occasionally I scale it, but usually I end up missing it entirely. 

Being a Mom is hard. 

I don’t intend to stop now.
