I know it is hard to believe.
It is for me too.
But sometimes things aren't always fresh baked cookies and field trips over here.
I would love to paint you that "perfect" picture, but truthfully that is not how it is.
Take this morning for example.
I was looking over an assignment Claire did.
I noticed a few typos and grammatical mistakes.
I also knew she had not included a few of the requirements.
I offered to retype the assignment and make the corrections.
All hell broke loose.
Claire was not interested in having me correct anything.
It was her assignment after all.
Screaming and crying ensued.
And that was just me.
Then Claire started.
Then Chad added his two cents worth.
Which I clearly did NOT ask for.
I don't try to be controlling.
I was only trying to help.
But sometimes my good intentions come across as controlling.
Or trying to make everything perfect.
For that I am sorry.
I am still learning.
I am not a pro at this whole Mom gig.
I still make mistakes.
I made a huge one this morning.
Will fresh baked cookies and a hug make it all better?
That is what I am hoping for.
