You’re doing better than you think you are.
On any given day, you are trying your best to give your kids a good education.
Now — what YOU think is your best — and what you are actually able to give — may not be the same thing!
You may think your best is perfect science experiments and perfect handwriting and everyone getting all their chores and no fighting and everyone singing happily throughout the day.
When in reality your best today may be just getting dressed and putting cold cereal on the table and turning on Daniel Tiger because it’s “educational.”
If you got up and you tried today, that WAS your best.
Do you want your best to be a little better tomorrow? Sure you do.
Do you want this level of “best” to stay this way? Of course not!
Redefine “best” as “I’m trying.” And tomorrow you get up and try again. Because you really are doing better than you think you are!
