What Motherhood is All About

Motherhood can mean a lot of different things- some joyful, some frustrating, and some hilarious. There are some moments that I think all mothers have in common. Here are a few of them.

Motherhood is:

Saying, “How did this happen?” ten times a day. Like when you go to put on your shoes and find a puff hiding inside. Or when you find a diaper in the laundry basket and a onesie in the trash.

Sweeping every day (or vacuuming, if your man-cub eats over the carpet).

Watching your kid’s eyes light up when daddy comes home.

Missing your baby when you are away from him.

Worrying about what your baby just put in his mouth.

Wishing your baby could stay a baby forever but can’t wait for them to grow up and become more independent.

Wondering how they got poop on their blanket when they are wearing footy pajamas.

Wanting them to take an extra long nap but worrying about them when they do.

Loving their smile when you come and get them from their crib when they wake up in the morning.

There are a million moments in each day that describe what motherhood is.
What is motherhood to you?
