Can’t stand to look at Pinterest because you feel like such a failure as Super Mom? You are not alone! I am constantly plagued by the fear that I am not doing enough with my kids. And that’s coming from someone who for a while sold craft ideas to Family Fun Magazine. Later, when I hit a slump I couldn’t even stand to look at the magazine because it reminded me of all the great activities I should be doing with my kids.
I have been chatting with some other super moms recently and have found that I’m not the only one who feels this way.
We talk about and publicly post our successes.
We only see our own failures!
Is that mixed up or what? But this weekend I got a hint that, yes, maybe I am not such a failure after all! 🙂 How do you know when you have done enough crafting with your kids? When they do it on their own.
Not that this is the first time my kids have done their own crafts, but just a recent reminder. So take heart, if you do any activities with your kids, you’re doing enough. Kids also need to learn how to entertain themselves.
Both my daughters were devastated to re-learn that our ratty old, tiny, cheap Easter tree had not made the move with us. (They had blocked out the memory of learning this last year.) I mentioned they could make a new and better one out of a tree branch, and Sparkle did! Dizzy helped her, so they even took pictures so I could post directions for you.
