Rules. Expectations.

Posted in olechik27

These are similar, but sometimes the lines between them are blurred. I thought I was getting the hang of the rules AND expectations for being a good mom and a good wife… I have yet to really “get it” though. These rules and expectations seem to be ever changing and I can never just be there in that glorious place where I’ve GOT IT!
