Let's be honest...parenting is wonderful some days and absolutely exhausting on others. Just when you think you have everything under control BAM, it all goes out the window.

Today's Tip: Allow yourself to be okay in the imperfection!

I used to think good parents got it right every day...and then I had kids of my own. I discovered there is no such thing as perfect parenting, Other things I have learned from the messy middle of parenting include...

1. Parenting is unpredictable

There are days when you think, "No problem, I've got this." Enjoy those days, because this job is always full of surprises! Your sweet baby hits the terrible twos or your pre-teen has taken "bad attitude" to a new level. Hang in there, it's okay. We've all been there, trust me.

2. Even the best parents struggle

You know that mom with the perfect kids? She has challenges too. Yes, her kids may behave in public, but I can promise you they are not always perfect angels at home. Nope, that mom may have a child who is defiant beyond reason, can't read at his grade level or is struggling with bed wetting.

We all have challenges, it comes with the job.
