That Moment I failed, epically
When you fail as a parent, you apologize and hug and kiss and go bowling and buy McDonalds and have movie night.
My alarm wasn't set correctly to remind me of Cadens school performance. We missed it. We were both so sad. Tears formed inside his little eyes when we had realized my mistake...
These things happen as parents. Sometimes, we drop the ball and man, does it feel like a punch in the guts. But these are the moments that we teach our children how to respond.
We stay honest. We admit fault. We give hugs. We have quality time to refill that hurt in our hearts.
It happens parents. You aren't a failure. You are doing your best and learning how to improve.
It is okay to fail. Just remember how to respond when you face that moment.
