Happy Mother’s Day to all you PIC MOMS out there.. new moms, stay-at-home-moms, working moms, single moms, expecting moms and more.
Mother’s not only give us life. Motherhood requires 24 hours of patience, guidance, strong maternal instincts, putting your children before yourself, teaching, cooking, doing laundry, doctor visits, taking care of sick children and the list just goes on and on. Mom’s at the end of the day may find ourselves extremely tired, whether we work and come home to our children or spend all day with our children. Being a mom is a labor of love, a blessing, a joy and should most definitely be cherished!
Here are a few things to remember..
Being a mom is not a competition. Don’t compare yourselves to other moms out there. Save your mental and physical energy and put that into your kids. It’s not about who buys their kids the biggest and most expensive birthday present or what mom makes the cutest cupcakes. It’s about spending quality time with your kids. Be yourself and trust your instincts. Even though you might be doing things differently, odds are you really are trying your best and doing a good job at it.
It’s better to laugh than cry! Sometimes motherhood can be frustrating and complicated. It can even drive us to tears. Try to laugh instead of getting worked up and remember the moment will pass!
It’s okay to have a messy home. I’m sure we would all love to have a home with everything in it’s place all the time. This isn’t the reality when having children. A house is a home when a family can really live in it! There is plenty of time when the kids leave home later in life to have an orderly home. For now, remember it’s okay to have messes! Messes are temporary things that create permanent memories!
Enjoy your own journey as a mother! Being a parent is the most important job there is. Your child depends on you for everything from learning their first word to all the values and beliefs that you pass onto them. Make it a great journey and a fun one!
