So many times, I’ve told a crazy Mom moment story to a friend or neighbor and they’ve told me to write it down. That after all the years, these are the memories that you’ll look back on and smile.
There are so many things no one tells you about being a mom. Last weekend was my fifth Mother’s Day and while every day I’m learning something new, here are a few things I’ve discovered along the way….. .
Getting those hugs at the end of the day are everything.
I didn’t expect to be pooped on by one kid while the other vomited in my hair.
How you rewrite history each night when they go to sleep where they miraculously become perfect angles.
While I didn’t struggle with getting pregnant. I thought I lost Marielle for two days and that devastated me.
When you see them accomplish something on their own and the light in their eyes makes your heart burst.
How I can’t watch post apocalyptic shows with a female lead because I’m sobbing about my inability to keep my kids safe from a zombie invasion.
Also, I now tear up when I go to a wedding and the parent gives a speech. I can’t help but imagine myself in their shoes many years from now.
That feeling of loving something so much but also feeling marginalized because of it.
How many times I have to ask to get thier shoes on to get out the door for school in the morning.
That I would be Mom shamed because I thought Marielle had followed her brother into the playground but was actually hiding in the bushes and was basically accused of abandoning and traumatizing her.
To all the moms out there going through all the feelings, you got this. ???????? ???? #love #stronglikemom
What Mom moments have you had along the way?
