You Are Not Failing As A Mom

When I think about my life with autism and motherhood, I like to believe that I take chaos in stride. I try to find joy and approach most struggles with optimism. That’s just me. And honestly, the only way I can survive with my sanity. In saying all that, sometimes it all gets to be too much.

Lately, I feel like I am waving the white flag. Surgeries, birthday parties, Pink Eye, pee, messes, snow pants, dogs, jobs, and overall feeling like crap is taking it’s toll on this mama. I try to smile. I try to prioritize, make lists, smile, get enough rest, eat well, blah, blah, blah. And before I know it, the feelings of chaos and failure creep in. I’m human and a mom. It happens to the best of us. If you feel this way, and I know you have before, I want you to know that you are not failing.You  are doing a fantastic job friend.

If your kids are happy, healthy and clean then you are not failing. If they make it to school, brush their teeth, get tickled and hugged, then you are not failing. And either am I.

Here is a glimpse into my chaos. I share this so you can feel a sense of normal and laugh and cry with me.

When my son was first diagnosed with autism no one was talking about it. Autism was hidden. I vow to change that.
