Mommin' Ain't Easy

8/12/2016

As moms, we are our own worst critics. I ask myself daily, "am I doing this whole mom thing right?" At night I'll stay awake thinking of all the things I could have and should have done better as a mom. I struggle daily with "mom guilt" even over the simplest things. Was I on my phone too much? Did I read him enough books? Did I let him watch too much TV? Did he eat too much junk food? Did I spend enough quality time? Was I too grumpy? 
Did I put him first? The list goes on and on...............
But why, WHY are we SO hard on ourselves? Don't we get enough judgment and backlash from society? Isn't it God's job to judge us? At the end of the day my baby is fed, clean, in a warm, comfy bed, being cuddled to sleep by a mother who would give her last breath for him. As mother's we have a huge responsibility to mold and shape our children into decent, well rounded, loving human beings. Trust me I get it, but there has to be a point where we give ourselves a break. We aren't perfect, no mother is, but I truly feel like we're all trying our best. Comparing ourselves daily to other moms is the worst thing we can do. I honestly believe comparison is the thief of joy. 
Parenting isn't for the faint of heart. All the mistakes and lessons make you who you are. Everyday is a learning experience that will make us better than we were the day before. I've made it my mission to stop being so hard on myself. When I see Liam's smiley face look up at me and say, "love you" I know I must be doing a whole lot of right. 
He is one amazing little boy...
and I'm one awesome mama, even on the bad days.

  2. I don't think that Mom guilt ever goes away, my Mum still seems to have it and I'm 23! It shows you care and love your little buddy. I've been following your blog since you got married and followed you on Instagram throughout your pregnancy and life as a mother and from what I can tell from that, little Liam is incredibly lucky to have you as his Mommy. You need to be less hard on yourself girl, your little boy is happy and that's all that matters! XxxX
