I know sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the craziness and problems that day to day life may bring, but let us not forget that sweet smile they can give. Along with all the stuff they don't tell you when you become a mother, they don't tell you just how you will feel the first time they smile. When they say mommy. Now that mine or older, I love to hear "mommy I love you." It is very easy to take those precious moments and move past because there are dishes to do, or laundry to fold. But just think of the inpack you will have on your child to stop for even a minute, look at them and take in that smile. They grow up to fast and in a blink of an eye they don't have time for you. But if we as moms can show our children to love, laugh and be there then when they do start to grow they will have that to grow with.
Being a mom is the hardest job out there. Yes we are to clean, feed them and keep them safe, but it is also up to us to teach them things so they can become good adults. I know dads help too, and I have a great husband that is very involved with our kids. However we as moms are there a good 80% more of the time, so that puts a lot of pressure on us.
It is true we always know how to fix the big problems, but as it was brought to my attention last week; thank you Amiee, we don't always know what to do with the little problem that still need answers. What am I talking about.... what if your little one hates veggies? Doesn't know how to tie their shoes? Still wets the bed? Wont eat dinner? Can't get into bed on time? You get where I am going. The little every day things that drives us crazy and we think "they are no big deal" can become a big deal over time and with many others put on top of them. Thats why we as moms need to talk to each other, because one of us may have a great solution the others hasn't thought of or tried yet. Take the ideas as ideas not as one saying you have failed. I know these topics can be easy to turn into finger pointing, but that is not what it is. So STOP being so hard on yourself and try your friends ideas... who knows they may work.
You are a good mom, you are a great mom, and an even better person for knowing when you need a little help!!!!
