"The thing that's important to know is that you never know. You're always sort of feeling your way."- Diane Arbus

I believe this quote sums up parenting. Although there are a lot of books out there from so-called experts, I am convinced that every child is different and so is every parent. One person's hang-ups wont be the same as someone else. I think the biggest thing I have learned through my experiences and that of my friends is that your feelings are valid and okay. It's okay that you don't love parenting everyday. It's a really hard job if you want to be a good one. Sometimes you will feel like a failure, that good ole mommy guilt, but then there will be days when your child says you are their best friend. Anything worth having wont be easy and being a mother is definitely the best gift I've ever received. So I am going to embrace the good, the bad, and the ugly and keep feeling my way through this journey.
