I Am Messed Up

My Matty turned three today! I love him more than life itself.  He is such a beautiful, perfect little boy.  I know I have failed him miserably.  I am not a perfect person so therefore can't be the perfect mother.  I have failed, he too like me, will not have the perfect little family.  He already has a brother by a different father and eventually I'm sure he'll have siblings by a different mother.  It's sad really. I wanted so more than anything to provide my children with a perfect life.  It didn't happen.

 

I take comfort knowing that Jeremy and his family are great people and that my Matty thrives under their care. I am grateful that their love and caring extends over to my Will.  

 

I take great comfort and will always appreciate that they are what I couldn't be.  I am weak. I am messed up.  I am Matt and Will's alcoholic mommy.

 

I hope and pray that the love/happiness I see in Matty's face when he sees me will always be there.  I want them to love me even if I don't deserve it.  I want both boys to know they are the most perfect thing ever in my fucked up life.

 

I am what I am, that fucked up person who can't get her shit together.

    I don’t think there is a such thing as a perfect life. Its not like we have a blueprint to follow. We do have beautiful children who love us though. I think that makes us pretty lucky actually. .. wink ..
