I am their safe place
I was reminded today that we mamas are our children’s safe place. As parents, we usually take the brunt of our children’s worst behavior. I was just talking to my husband about this the other day.
I had watched my daughter in dance class ... she was smiling, attentive, and pleasant with her classmates and teachers. Then she got in my car and start crying and whining about some small detail. Ugh! That can be so overwhelming and frustrating as a parent, especially as we deal with this on a daily basis.
But we do need to take pause and remember that we are their rock. We are their punching bag and their security net. I need to remember, even when I am tired and it’s so hard, to give them grace. Give them my attention and my empathy. I need to give them my strength. I am their mom. ❤️
