Sometimes I Get Motherhood Right
If you read last weeks post, Parenting Differences: 1st child vs. 2nd child, you may think I’ve done nothing right as a mother. And by you, I mean I think I have done nothing right. Thankfully the same day that post went live, Stephanie over at Sic Mama, tagged me in the Rocking Motherhood challenge. Talk about timing, right?! (And a HUGE Thank you to her for thinking of me!)
What is the Rocking Motherhood Challenge you may ask? It’s a challenge making the rounds in blog land where moms tag other moms to write a post about 10 or more ways they are #ROCKINGMOTHERHOOD. The purpose is to help encourage other moms to step back and be proud of the things they are doing well as a parent!
Now, I in no way can compare to the amazing mother of 5 she is! Yes, she has five human children and is doing a kick ass job of being their mom! But I can say with confidence that my children are my priority and I love them more than I have the words to describe.
Rocking Motherhood, The Domestic Realist Style
If you’ve spent any time on The Domestic Realist, you know that I am very realistic, practical, and honest with my thoughts and opinions. This list is no different. And because I wanted to try something new I thought I’d make a video to showcase the amazing mother that I truly am. (HA!!!) So that you can walk through your own home and see the same visual proof of how you are Rocking Motherhood, one day at a time!
I wanted to counteract last week’s post which was a very real portrait of how I may not be the ideal mother since becoming a mom of 2. It’s all about balance. Ya know, the Ying and yang, RIGHT?! I get to show you (and myself!) 10 ways I’m Rocking Motherhood most days of the week!
