Mother's Day is this Sunday, just in case you were too busy being a Mother to notice. It got me thinking about how sometimes I'm so busy, tired, and stressed that I don't stop to appreciate why being a Mom is worth it. Some days it's easier to focus on the negatives and I ask myself why did I go through all of the pain, nausea, sleepless nights, insecurity, and the extra 10 pounds that won’t go away? So, I wrote a post on Why Being a Mom is Worth It that I wanted to share. But more importantly, I'd love to hear from you.
Why Do You Love Being a Mom? Please comment below and let's create a great list of why Motherhood is amazing. The reminder is a nice gift to ourselves.
I want to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day. I hope your day is special – filled with “Chocolate Cake Moments” where you are smiling, indulged, and enjoying Mommyhood. For some Mother’s Day fun, read my post “Is a Mother’s Day Card Really a Performance Review?” Finally, here are some quotes to make you smile.
