This morning, I was getting late and had to drop the kids at my parent’s place by myself as hubby is travelling. In my rush I asked the girls to speed up and rush to their grandparent’s place while I was busy keeping their schoolbags and water bottles inside Dad’s car. Poor Lil Love fell on the road and all I did was to shout and ask her to get up, go running upstairs and ask grandpa to clean her trousers. I rushed back into to the cab and once I was settled, I felt so sorry and so bad that I couldn’t hold my tears back. I felt bad because I didn’t bother to stop and see whether my child was hurt. I didn’t even give her a chance to explain what she was trying to tell me. I didn’t even try to pacify her. What the hell am I working for, if I can’t give proper attention to the kids? Feeling really really upset and I know I won’t feel better until I reach back home, see them, say sorry and give her a tight hug and a few kisses.
Am I failing as a mother?
