Being mom means different things to different moms. I’ll tell you what it means to me: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Being mom means…
- I never get to go first.
- My food is almost always cold by the time I get to eat it.
- I am always tired.
- I don’t remember anything.
- I never travel light.
- I lose my temper.
- I laugh a lot. Sometimes I laugh right after I’ve lost my temper.
- There are two little girls that look at me like I am the most beautiful woman in the world.
- I am the most beautiful woman in the world to two little girls.
- I feel like I’m never allowed to complain about any part of motherhood without adding the disclaimer, “but it’s totally worth it” or else whoever is listening to me will add the disclaimer for me. No sh!t it’s totally worth it, but sometimes I just need to vent. Give a mother a break!
- I finally had to grow up.
- I get to act like a kid again.
- I don’t always know what I’m doing, but I do it with the best of intentions.
- I’m not always right and it’s okay to admit when I’ve made a mistake.
- No one, but no one is as tired as I am. Not possible.
- I don’t mind cleaning up after my kids, I just don’t really like cleaning.
- Sometimes I feel like I’m not enough.
- I love my kids more than I ever thought possible.
- I can’t watch the news or a TV show without crying if it has anything to do with children being hurt.
- My kids made me love the world more.
- Sometimes I want to be alone, all by myself, and do whatever I want.
- I want my kids to like me when they grow up. Not just love me, but genuinely like me.
- I always need to nurture myself as a person because I am not only a mother, I am also me and I will continue to be me once my kids are grown.
