Poem: I’m a bad mom

Hello,

This peom is more like a personal rant, so it’s a fairly bad poem. I’m having a hard time with potty training, behavior, and speech therapy stuff with my daughter. The issue isn’t with my daughter right now, but with everyone else. I’m actually very happy to say that presently my daughter tolerates me and even gives me hugs.

I’m a bad mom

I’m a bad mom
thats always wrong
that thinks she’s never wrong.
While my daughter lags on 6 months to a year
behind others when she’s
speaking
to
you.

And we say she goes at her own pace.
Cause she can jump so high,
And she can argue her point
In a blah blah kind of way.

But its not just the doctors anymore.
Or me,
Unfairly comparing her to others.

I see how she lags
And wants her way.
You see how she lags
And wants her way.

I’m torn between she fine and not okay.
I’m told I’m doing well, and she’s so happy.
While being told I do nothing, because my daughters behind.

And so
I’m a bad mom when I make her cry.
And I’m a bad mom when she gets her way.
And I’m a bad mom when I try.
And I’m a bad mom when everybody else doesn’t get their way.

  1. I felt every bit of that poem. We as parents learn as we go. There is no instructions. What works for one parent and child may not work for another. What matters is you love your child and she loves you.
