Finding Myself

Since this post I have been working very hard on being the mom I used to be and I am thrilled to share that things are improving. I am speaking kindly to Princess and we are playing together more. We are laughing more and having fun. I have to work hard to stay on this path. I am still not perfect, but I am not striving for perfection. I asked Princess how I was doing and she told me that I "get all check marks", that it's all good now. It still isn't easy and I must remember to fill my cup so that I can continue to be the best mom I can be. Thank you all for your support and encouragement.

Great for you both! I think it's great how you spotted something in yourself that needed fixing and went on ahead a just started fixing it. Beautiful!

That's wonderful and so sweet that Princess gave you all check marks! :)

Sheri, thanks for the hugs. They are always appreciated. =)

Kelly, back at'cha!

SMT & Rachel, we are having a lot of fun again...and it's so amazing. Rachel, doesn't she look good?! I have to post about the treatment we used for her eczema.

Sheila, it was a hard thing to face but I knew that if I didn't it would destroy both of us. It's still hard, but so worth it.

Aliceson, I thought the check marks were sweet too, but I have no idea where that came from. The only check marks we use is to check things off a list. I guess I've been put on a list? ;)
