I'm Going to Be a Better Mother, I Promise

So I just had a fight with Emma where I issued the statement, “I really love you Emma, but sometimes I just wanna take your cute little head and throw it in the street.” Harsh?
I’m really not cut out for this motherhood thing. Maybe that’s why I’m not getting pregnant with Martin Baby #5. Heavenly Father has given me four children and finally realized, “Oh.”
Yep, it’s gotta stop.
I love you Emma my Dilemma. And Martin Baby #5, if you’re up there fretting, I love you too.

More than once I've said "I love you, but I don't want you around me right now. Go to your room!" Not exactly heads in the street, but then again, my girl isn't 8 yet. I see the way she's headed, though, and I'm not looking forward to all that sassiness when she's bigger. Good luck making up with Emma!

Knowing your not perfect makes you a better mother. Lighten up on yourself.

Really, I’m not too hard on myself I just ought to let my words reflect my truer feelings.
I really like what Ann says to her spunky girl. I’m going to use that in the future.
For more information on Martin Baby #5 see May 30th post.
Jennifer, we take ‘em one at a time.
And thanks so much Raina for reminding me that everything can get worse.
