I am a mother
I nap sometimes and go to bed early when my house is dirty.
I care for a household.
I am proud to see my child grow in independence.
I am scared for the days when he needs me less and less.
I love to cook, bake, eat and feed people.
I look forward to my child's bedtime so I can have quiet time.
I watch my child while he sleeps.
I like to run when I can, practice yoga and walk.
I love being with my family.
I love being alone.
This job is messy.
This job is the funnest one I have ever had.
I cry more after becoming a mom.
I drink coffee and pop and give my child juice.
I fill my home with healthful food and sometimes we eat pizza.
I get frustrated and loose my cool.
I play, laugh and tickle.
I love my husband, my partner in parenthood, I would never want to do this role without him.
I read books with my child.
I watch TV with my child.
I put the TV on for my child when I want to do my makeup and hair for the day.
I pray a lot.
I get all my strength from God.
I think, "motherhood is the best blessing I have ever received."
I think "motherhood is hard stuff."
I am on my phone a lot.
Sometimes I leave my phone at home.
I think my friends who are moms are the best mothers for their children.
I think we moms are just too hard on ourselves sometimes. Give yourself a break, your doing the best you can and that's amazing work. Happy Mothers Day!
