If you were a fly on the wall at my house, you'd be sure to hear your share of fussing, complaining and whining. Maybe even a slammed door or two.

But enough about me.

In the pressure cooker that's parenting, I have exploded more than once. And it's harder to clean up than spaghetti night with a toddler.

So after years spent indulging in fruitless self-flogging, I finally let go of my obsession with getting it all 'just right.' I confess...I'm not a perfect parent.

Whew. That felt good.

Now, when my son saunters in with his 42nd tardy of the school year, I let it go. When I hear myself hollering "Whatever!" at my teenage daughter, I move on.

Having it all together is overrated anyway.

And I've determined not to waste God's grace. I'll never get it just right. You won't, either. So read on, sister. If you see a little of yourself in me, I hope it helps to know that you're not alone. Nope. If you're a mom, face it. You're never, ever alone.

Tweet Me Tuesday will be back here next week!


Hello, fellow Tweeters!

If you read the post below, you can see I am making a switch to Wordpress this week (at least that's the plan. I've run into a few glitches.) My bloggy world is in a fair bit of chaos right now.

For that reason, I won't be posting and participating in Tweet Me Tuesday this week. However, my blog hop co-host Kristen is still on the job so be sure and see her over at MamaBytes and link up!
I hope to be back in action and posting again (hopefully in my new WordPress home) later this week.
Thanks for your patience and hope to see you here for Tweet Me Tuesday next week!
Melinda

  5. Praying it's going a bit smoother. Remember, just one step at a time. And when it's all done, you're really going to love it! :)

    By the way, @JohnHaydon is great! Very helpful! He switched to Headway and I believe he has good info on his site - plus he's always been great at helping me when I ask questions. So in case you have any :)
