Prior to having children of my own I thought motherhood would come pretty easy for me. Hahaha, sucker! I’ve learned and experienced some hard truths since having young kids. There’s no such thing as sleeping in anymore. There’s no such thing as having a private moment in the bathroom. I’ve been pooped, peed and vomited on. I’ve learned and have got pretty good with negotiating and what bribing is all about. But Mabel might be even better at it. These of course are just some basic examples.
I give myself a pretty hard time when it comes to striving to be this “great mom.” The fact is though, I’m trying, hard. I want to be someone my children can lean on, trust and laugh with. To give them a solid foundation of good morals and a strong work ethic. A sense of security, to be themselves and to follow their dreams. And if I keep going back to those fundamentals then I think I’m on the right track.

I love watching my kids grow, learn and discover. I am so grateful that they are healthy and happy. Hands down motherhood has been the greatest challenge and by far the greatest gift presented to me and I respect the person I’m becoming because of it.
I wanted to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day! Thank you for reading and/or commenting. We all have something special and unique to share as we walk down our own independent road of motherhood. I’ve learned so much from you all and I thank you.
Did you do anything fun or out of the norm today? Hope you enjoyed it!!
