Every time we go to the doctors office we get a little sheet to fill out. They ask questions like can your child count to 10, do they know their alphabet, do they use good eye contact, etc....then there is that one question that you know they aren't screening your child they are screening you...the mother.....
HOW STRESSFUL IS RAISING YOUR CHILD?
I am preparing for this question for Monday. The only problem is I don't know that the nurse practitioner is prepared for the answer. I am already envisioning me having a total breakdown at the doctors office crying, huge tears just streaming down my face... very similar to the breakdown I just had in the van driving home from Cedar Falls.
All I can say is some days are stressful. .....very very stressful!
I feel like everyday is stressful when you are raising kids. Some days are just less stressful then others. Being a Mother is hard work!!! Raising my daughters is the most Important job I have ever had. I want to raise them to be followers of Christ, to love others, to choose amazing husbands like their own daddy, and to love each other because they are sisters who will always be there for each other.
So what do I find stressful about that? I am scared, scared I will screw it up, screw them up.
So here I fall on my knees and Pray tears falling, giving it to God!
