Failing

Everyone does it! At some point everyone feels as if they are failing at something.

Lately I have been failing at a lot of things, well at least I feel as if I am.

I failed at cleaning R1's favorite tennis shoes that he wanted to wear.
I failed at doing something with Hubs over the Christmas break that he asked me to do.
I failed at making sure the family had CLEAN socks to wear.
I failed at reading books with R2.
I failed at making sure all phone calls at work were returned.
I failed to start my diet.
I failed to visit my bloggy friends everyday.
I failed at providing healthy snacks for the boys because snack size chips were easier to give.
I failed at having family game time.
I feel as if I am failing this motherhood thing and letting the ones I love the most down.

So many things are pulling me in 9,000 different directions I don't know which one to pick first. And if I tried to do something specific over the past few weeks, I feel as if I failed at it.

Oh, I did finally manage to clean R1's favorite shoes and make sure the laundry was done so everyone has clean socks!

Girlfriend we ALL fail! But we are our own worse critics too! Proably our husbands and kids don't think a thing about it 5 minutes later. Just turn those sock inside out today honey! Yeah, that works!

All we can do is try, try, try and rejoice when we actually succeed at something! Believe me....you are NOT alone!
