This parenting thing

One would think that by the time you have three children you could pretty much parent in your sleep. In my case one would be oh so wrong. Lately I keep finding myself second guessing my parenting decisions. I hate this. I like to make a decision about something and feel good about it knowing I did the right thing. Apparently my parenting handbook (the one I got late that was missing half the pages) failed to mention that sometimes there are no right and wrong answers. Right now I'm wondering should I call the doctor about that weird rash Kylie has, should I go back to work to help out financially, should I put Sophie back in gymnastics even though I hated taking her last year? I hate to say a definitive yes or no because I hate to screw up, but at the same time I can't just keep saying I don't know to everything. Maybe I should call my mom. Not for her advice, but to see if she still has my magic eight ball from when I was a kid.

Too true! I think I'm going to go get one of those also! Thanks for coming by my blog and becoming a Flocker! Have a great day!

I feel your pain! I wrote a post awhile ago about how I hated being The Mom. Not that I hated being A Mom, but that I hated being The One that has to make all the decisions, has to be able to see the future and predict the outcomes, has to prevent unseen catastrophies and somehow still keep everyone fed, clothed and sane. It's alot of pressure!

I have been struggling with parenting decisions myself...maybe I need to look for guidance from the magic 8 ball as well.

I wish it were that simple!

The more you parent, the more you realize how little you know. It doesn't help that every kid is so different and what works with one won't necessarily work with the next.

Да , я прекрасно понимаю , что все это зависит от человека , но у меня нет таких лидерских способностей , пробивных, коие хотя бы не очень большую гарантию дали, что все с работой ок может быть . Я тихая и спокойная и непрезентабельная (и очень ответственности боюсь) ,но все-таки и стремление стать начальницей ))) профи есть ))), . Надеюсь просто , что со временем ко мне уверенность придет и я добьюсь чего хочу . в данный момент с работой не клеится абсолютно . мне 24
спасибо !
