Truth in Parenting | Parenting through mistakes

At some point, you just have to let go and let life happen. You can't plan for everything. You can't foresee when bad things will happen. But you have to come to peace with bad decisions and mess ups. Don't fear making the mistakes. Don't let the mom-guilt overtake you. And when you need to, forgive yourself. By your example, you are teaching your children to forgive themselves, too.

We're human. We're just doing our best. Sometimes less. And that's ok.

    October Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month Events in Tampa Bay

    “When a child loses his or her parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses his or her partner, they are called a widow or widower. When a parent loses their child, there isn’t a word to describe them. This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world.”
