Do you owe an apology to anyone? Why?

Do you owe an apology to anyone? Why?

I need to apologize to my kids. Last night I was a little too short of temper. There was a lot of whining (on their part) and I was tired and had enough for one day. I was trying to get them in the bath and then into bed as we were all exhausted from a long day of fun. I wasn't the most patient of parents.

To my children I say, "Mommy is sorry that she was sharp and short with you last night. I am not perfect but I'm trying to be the best parent that you know. I love you both".

I know I'm not the perfect parent but I do want to do right by them. I only hope their memories of childhood is not when mommy and daddy were impatient but of all the other times when we love them and hug them and play with them and do fun things with them. No pressure on the parenting part, is there?

How about you? Want to air a public apology to anyone?
