That is what I need.
As I inch my way (with a reluctance I cannot completely shake off) into motherhood, this is what I need help with:
How do I become a better mom in the sense of rolling with the flow, soaking in the good moments and letting the unpleasant ones roll off? How do I get to the place where the screeching, whining voice of my hungry baby (as I am making her bottle) doesn’t rake every last nerve in my body the wrong way (imagine stroking a cat backwards…this is my nerves)?
These are my million dollar questions. This is the goal(s) I am striving for. I am not certain if it is attainable, so if it isn’t…well, I guess I really need to know so I can adjust my thinking. If it isn’t attainable to not be annoyed, then I can strive for handling my reaction better.
I suppose (wow. irony.) I just solved my own problem with my own answer in the last sentence. Interesting how writing helps my brain function more smoothly.
Well, I still would like to hear answers to my questions posed above from anyone who is willing to offer…uh, allow me to rephrase…if you are a parent, then I would love to hear your opinion, advice, answers or hysterical pointing and laughing…all other opinions will be read and discarded because you know NOTHING of parenting unless you are one, trust me on that. Although, feel free to entertain me…
