I have never tried to be a perfect parent, fairly certain I’d go insane if I tried. Every day I wake up doing the best that I can do, that day. That is all you can ask for.
There is so much pressure to have the perfect child, be the perfect parent, your house is spotless, you bake, you make everything, you run your self ragged trying to be the perfect parent that you forget to be a parent.
I expect to see a unicorn before I see a perfect parent!
