Today is a special day!
It is Mother’s Day! Moms are the hardest workers I know of.
As mothers, some of us, if not most of us, are battling mental illnesses, regular exhaustion, other medical problems, jobs, school, relationships, and more than one child. It isn’t easy to get up every day even when you don’t want to. It’s not fun when you and your partner are equally busy and tired. It isn’t a walk in the park when you can’t go out, can’t spend money on yourself, can’t lay up with your spouse or even engage in sex. And not because the kid(s) are interrupting but because you guys are just so freaking tired.
Sometimes when you even have the time or money, you don’t have a sitter or you are too tired to go out. Sometimes learning the techniques on your own or with your spouse is stressful. And those moments lead to the ultimate test of strength and love within one another. Sometimes getting advice from others when you aren’t willing to accept it can be frustrating. Sometimes people judging you based on your parenting methods can be down right degrading.
Regardless of how messy your home is, how chaotic your life is going, and how much time you don’t get to yourself…remember that you are doing the most wonderful best job in the world. No one can do what you do better than you for your kids. No one compares to you when it comes to your own flesh and blood.
Keep up the amazing effort and work. Always remember that when other parents, old and new, give you advice, they are only there to help. They have been frustrated and stressed out just like you have felt or are feeling. Don’t hesitate to ask for help or a night free.
Super heroes need days off, too!
I love my mommy and my mommy in law, I wish you both a happy mothers day! Without you both, I couldn’t be a mother myself.
This is my first Mother’s Day gift from Alaina that her daycare helped with. 💗
My daughter, my mommy, and my brother being so silly. This was from the other week. She has so much going on and still has done her best to make time for us. She has handled being an amazing mommy even when life has gotten heavy and crazy. She’s been supportive of my parenting and has helped me acknowledge a different parent of myself not that I am a mom. Thank you mommy, i love you so much. 💙
