As a parent, it's important to not beat yourself up too much. It's a hard friggin job. Every day I question whether I've done something that will cause my girls to be scarred for life. It could be something as simple as accidentally saying the word "stupid."
There is an ongoing banter in my head about these things that they will probably never remember, but I will continue to worry about...
"I just called the toy I tripped over stupid. Emily is going to think I'm calling her stupid and she will go through life thinking that she is stupid."
Mommy guilt...it's a lovely thing.
Well, instead of berating myself for these things, today I'm going to applaud myself for one thing that I taught Emily to do quite successfully. One thing that I'm proud of teaching her...
"Dance like no one is watching."
