On those days when you feel as though you are moving backwards, remind yourself of this important fact: Motherhood is not nearly as much about racing to the finish line as it is about becoming a better version of yourself.
Candy Land was one of my favorite games as a child. It is so bright and colorful, and I just love it when you get the special cards that transport you closer and closer to the finish line.
As a grown up, I find this game to be far less enjoyable and sometimes downright frustrating. All that work to move forward, only to find yourself transported back to the Peppermint Forest.
I have discovered many similarities between the game of Candy Land and the early seasons of motherhood.
