Parenting Yourself

Parenting is kind of funny. You think it’s all about teaching your kids, when in reality it teaches you more about yourself.

When I found out I was having a girl, I knew she would be like me. I just didn’t expect her to be SO much like me. My daughter is me in every single way! I see the look on her face when she is getting mad, and I know what she is thinking. I see her brain turning as she tries to talk me into another cookie. I used to do these same things. I’m literally parenting a miniature version of myself.

THIS IS TERRIFYING!!!

Seeing my child grow, and develop into a mini-me really made something click for me.💡

💭 “I know where she gets this”

💭”What have I done?”

💭”Was I really that crazy?”

Karma is coming full circle, and I know it’s my own fault. I wish I could say that I am ready for it, but I know I just have to ride out the storm.

Being a parent has taught me to better myself, be more patient, and to take things as they come. It just took me nearly 30 years to figure this out 🤷🏼‍♀️
