But sometimes I can't help but feel my daughter has drawn the short straw when she landed me as her mom. I'm just not one of those women that love doing mothering-type things. I don't know how to sew. I get bored playing games or doing other activities. I hate watching her do art sometimes because of the mess it makes. I don't pack lunches for her in the morning when other venues of food are possible.
There's probably many other areas I fall short in that are just not coming to me at this moment.
Is my daughter happy? Yes! Does she love her family? Yes! Is she well-loved? Of course! She she well-cared for? Absolutely!
But I always feel like I should be doing more. I fall way short of perfect in this area.
I imagine (or maybe just hope) that I'm not the only mother that feels this way. Please tell me that the rest of you feel like this at one time or another.
Do you ever feel you sometimes suck at motherhood?
