I am slightly over 3 years into this motherhood thing. There are times I feel like I am still a teenager and can’t take care of myself let alone two tiny humans. There are also days I feel like an elderly person hobbling to bed. I wanted to share what Motherhood is to me and I would love to hear what Motherhood is to you.
Being exhausted all the time.
Making up silly songs and dances about things like brushing teeth. “Gotta brush brush brush your germies out…” going strong for 2 years now.
Talking someone off the ledge about Daniel Tiger not being available to watch right then.
Knowing that having 2 cheeses, Mickey Mouse chips, and applesauce at school pick up is necessary to survive meltdowns.
Being able to change a diaper in under 20 seconds.
Heating up your coffee 4 times before you’ve had one sip.
Multitasking between shhh-ing a baby, playing trains, and answering emails.
Knowing all the words to every song in Moana, Trolls, Paw Patrol, and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
Sharing the last bite of something you really want to eat because a tiny voice says “can I want some mommy?”
Putting yourself last 99% of the time but loving every second.
Getting more excited about buying something for them than yourself.
Celebrating the little wins of the day.
Crawling into bed exhausted but happy.
I would love to know what Motherhood Is to you! Share below!
