So easy to be hard on us self. But remember, that kids will get over it quicker than we do and forget and move on. We don’t. But be kind to yourself. It is ok to get it wrong at time. As long as you are aware of it and willing to learn from it. What is done in love is done well.
I pulled your hair, to make you stop screaming. You were sad, for five minutes. I will always remember.
I said that you were stupid, when I told you twice. You cried, for four minutes. I felt guilt, forever.
I interrupted you, when I found your story boring. You got mad, for three minutes. I still worry that I did you wrong.
I sent you away, when I was tired. You got angry, for two minutes. I regret the day.
I doubted you, when you did your best. You stopped trying, for one minute. I’m sorry.
You forgot and still love me. I don’t.
