Yesterday, I was angry and I wrote a blog about our former au pair that I regret. I regret it because in hindsight it was thoughtless and potentially very hurtful to a young woman who really did try.

As I start this new day, I just wanted to clear the air and thank that one friend, who could see my hurt and anger, but still was strong enough to say, “Hey, I know you are better than this” and then asked me to take it down.

My blogging has never been intended to hurt anyone’s feelings. I write about my experience, my family, and my life. Writing has been therapeutic to me as I navigate through this sea of parenting. The waters can be treacherous but they are also beautiful. I think yesterday’s post was one that could have been written and never published and perhaps I could have avoided any questioning of my character.

As I parent, I continue to learn about myself and I am constantly working on being a better person, a better mother, and a better wife. I make a lot of mistakes and I am very open about those. So here I am saying, “OOPS!” in a major way. Forgive me friends. Thanks for reading and I hope that you’ll hang in there with me on the next adventure.
