I recently had a great talk with my best of friends, I told him about how it is not always easy. Some people think that I do it with so much ease, yes it comes natural for us to be in the environment we love however it doesn't make it easier as a mother. There's tears, there's tantrums there's silliness. Because that is what being a mother involves.
I remember once, we were snowshoeing and all having a great time. So suddenly our daughter dropped to the ground and there was a full on tantrum. Screaming, tears and kicks in the air. It wasn't because of what we were doing, it was because she was a kid. She is a kid.
I left the area carrying my daughter on my shoulders, I had snowshoes hitting me in the face. I had tears. I was so discouraged. But the point of my story is kids will be kids. We could have been at home, watching her favorite movie and this would have happened. Sure in your house the embarrassment is far less dramatic but when I look back, I wouldn't change a thing. We are growing together, learning together. Being a mother and a father is a hard job but it is truly to best job in the whole world!
