You aren't a failure, you just haven't found the right treatment. Try to just see your blood sugar numbers as just information that helps you dose your insulin, not as a judge. When my blood sugars were high all the time I dreaded testing bs and avoided it, which made my blood sugars worse.
Do you use a pump? For me it was the only way to get decent blood sugars. With shots it always felt like I was high or low.
As long as you're carb counting and adjusting your insulin, your eating habits shouldn't affect your A1c.
The cool thing about diabetes is that when you start making changes you see instant results in your blood sugar. Don't lose hope, just figure out what will work for you. Having your blood sugars lower will help you have more energy to keep up with your busy family.
