Sometimes we simply fail as moms, but we can learn from those failures. I'm guest posting today over at my new friend Paula's blog, Hopeful Future. She's running a series on what we can learn from our failures. Be sure to check it out. Here's a sneak peak:

My 11-year-old came home from school with a failed math test, and I think, “I could have helped her prepare better.”
My 9-year-old was frustrated with not getting enough attention and chose to get in trouble, after which I drug her out on the back porch and yelled at her, and I think, “I could have handled that better.”
