Motherhood Dreams left Unrealized

Before I became a mother, the thing I was most excited about was being able to mother however I wanted to. I was so excited to take the best from every mother I knew and make it my own. But now that I've been parenting for almost 8 years, the things I had imagined myself doing, the life I imagined myself living seems to be left unrealized. I thought I would be kinder, more organized, and a better parent. Yes, I try to teach my children to get along, to revere the scriptures, to be gentle and loving and a million other things I hope for my children to learn, but it's often apparent to me that that our reality does not match up with my ideals.
