Being a Mom..

Being a mother can sometimes be overwhelming and exhausting. Oh, and you can forget about that thing called sleep. There are also the doubts and guilt that you can’t help from feeling: ” Am I being a good mother? Am I neglecting my husband?” You find yourself pulled in so many directions, followed by a to do list that is never ending, housework, work, prayer, life, love, joy, and sadness all mashed together in one weave.

There’s also the worry about being able to afford college, clothes, books, and sports. There’s never enough money or time, but there is poop, lots of poop. There will also be broken crayons, legos all over the floor, and food in every crevice imaginable, all at the feet of a 3 yr. old with an insatiable appetite for adventure. ” I wonder what will happen if I poop here? If I paint the walls with Vicks will mamá notice?,” I can almost hear him thinking.

Mamá does notice and sometimes wants to crawl right back into bed and shut the door. Yet, the wheels of life must keep turning, and meals must be made, clothes washed, and floors cleaned. At the end of the day I’m not a successful chef who runs her own restaurant, as I might of envisioned when I was younger. I’m nothing exceptional to the world, just a stay-at-home mom, but you know what? To a little 3 yr. old someone, I’m the most important person in the universe, and that’s all that matters. At least that’s all that should matter.

Being a mom can sometimes be overwhelming and exhausting. Oh, and you can forget about that thing called sleep

    ………and you wanted 10 of those…jajaja ! But is worth it 🙂

  • Don’t think too much about all the things to do! 🙂

    • Just one day at a time..I know…but it’s easy to forget it

  • I was talking to my childhood friend last night. They never had children and she works 60 hours a week. I was thinking, Why? What’s the point of having all that money and no time to use it or spend it on. Her whole life revolves around a job. You have more purpose being a mom.

    • Thanks for the reminder Stacey. I was just having one of those days, but there is no doubt in my mind that this is what I’m supposed to be doing,

  • The photos are too funny! Kind of reminds me of going through art college and having to put up with the Foundation students in the canteen literally covered in charcoal. Seriously, they must’ve gone to the loo and applied it!

  • There’s nothing better than being a mom!
