I'm in charge

My husband and I were talking the other night, and I mentioned to him that I am sometimes amazed that someone put me in charge of two human lives.  Not in the sense that I think I am a poor mother, or that they are in any danger being with me, but I just wonder what vetting process was used to determine I get to be their mom.

My husband works on Sundays, so for much of the day it's Mommy and the kids.  I often try to get them out of the house, for sanity's sake for all of us.  Regardless of what we do, I am in charge of these two little human beings, their welfare and development.  That's a big deal.

Some days I'm unsure about what I'm doing as a mom.  I worry that I don't do enough, or well enough, or...  but at the end of the day, I do know that I am trying my hardest to be the best I can for them.

Because they deserve it.
