· Have I mentioned how hard parenting is? This is definitely the hardest thing I’ve done. One of the reasons I am writing this blog is because I have felt, at times, completely lost as a mom. I can’t tell you how many times a day I question how to parent. I wonder if I’m doing it all right (which I’m not and never will) and wonder how to do it better. I have been blessed to have some amazing mentors in my life and have an amazing church that equips parents to better raise this family. The Pritchards (http://www.pritchardministries.org/) are a family I call often for advice. They’ve given me a lot of the tips you see here. I have many families I admire and watch. I have so many peers that are amazing parents, and I observe and ask questions. I watch parents in the grocery store to learn how to do it better or how not to do it at all. I can’t emphasize enough that this blog isn’t a result of being a perfect parent. It’s actually a result of feeling a bit stumped by the whole things. I don’t know what I’d do without mentors guiding me and giving me solid advice.
