I'm sure this is a rant I need to let out but just wondering if anyone else gets exhausted by always trying to do the "right" thing and still ending up in the same or worse situation than everybody else anyway.
I make sure my dd eats a super healthy diet, gets exercise everyday, etc. I muster up every drop of energy I can find to make sure I'm doing everything I can for her. We are a very holistic family.
So knock me over dumbfounded when I get told my five year old has four cavities. Seriously, there are kids all around us eating nothing but pop tarts and gummy snacks all day and here's my kids who NEVER eats that crap and brushes every night without fail and yet somehow she's the one who ends up with bad teeth. I still have no idea what I'm going to do but I'm starting to feel like what's the point.
I spend endless hours researching, living against the norm or mainstream, to find what should be the better way, the healthier way, and it still doesn't pay off.
I'm so exhausted. I mean really really exhausted. I try so hard and I still feel like I'm failing her. So what's the point? Maybe we should just do whatever we want and eat whatever we want and just have fun all the time since we're not getting any benefit from doing things the way we are now!
