This month, I am going to focus my Rewind Friday on motherhood. My blog is very much a mom blog and with Mother's Day in May, I thought this would be the perfect time to share some of my most loved motherhood pieces.
Parenting 101: Never Say Never is my Mom confession of all I said I would never do but have done. It's easy to think you have it all figured out before having children. But there is nothing like motherhood to humble you and your expectations.
What I've Learned from Motherhood is nine simple lessons that I've been handed over the last 3 and half years. It's amazing how big the influence is of someone who depends on you to thrive. The biggest lesson I've learned has been that putting your needs to the side is never a sacrifice. It's done without thought. You would give anything to make your child's life extraordinary.
My Thoughts: One & Done still rings true as much as it did when I published this post in January of 2015. I love my family exactly how it is. Sure there are things we will never experience again nor experience for the first time but I wouldn't trade my family of 3 for a family of 4 or more. No way. I love my life with James and CJ. It's pure perfection. Most days.
Becoming a Confident Mother is something that I think resonates with so many Mommas. You go from being you, a single individual, to being someone's Momma, having someone totally, completely depending on you. You question your ability, your strengths, you common sense. But you grow and you learn and you embrace your motherhood. I'm still growing into my Mommy role. It's a process that will never stop.
10 Lessons Motherhood Has Taught Me is a raw and true collection of lessons that often times come across as smacks in the face, humbling moments and/or times of pure madness. Personal space and bathroom habits are mentioned and with each lesson learned, you slowly realize that you are truly at the mercy of your children. No matter how "together" you think you have it. You don't. I promise.
Motherhood has been such an amazing journey. Personally and for our family, we've experienced so much joy. It's amazing really want becoming a parent does to someone. I never pictured myself as a Mommy but here I am, thriving in my role, living every minute of it, the good and bad.
