Motherhood is some scary stuff. From the cradle to the grave there remains a constant nagging feeling of failure and imperfection.
At the end of the day as we crawl into our beds, there’s still a part of us that stays alert just in case….
It’s an awesome privilege to be a mother, but countless times we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be the perfect mother making it a monstrous task.
Happy Mommy makes a Happy Home….but many times dealing with our children can be pretty frustrating ….so let’s see if we can talk through some coping techniques to help keep everyone happy.
- When we get upset with our children, let’s put ourselves on a time-out to avoid saying or doing anything we will regret afterwards. Go to your room and shut the door. You are now officially on time-out 😴😴
- Take some time to pamper yourself and do something to make you happy. Shoes shopping isn’t a bad idea 👠
- Do what’s important and forget the unnecessary stuff. Energy saving mode 💃💃
- We are moms and not maids. Share responsibilities 🙊🙊
As mothers, we hope to at least hear the praises of our children expressing how wonderful we are and the great job we did in raising them. But what if this never happens?
Be confident about how good a job you have done and is still doing. Those adorable angels 😏 are still alive. The fact that we do the same things over and over again, even when we are exhausted calls for a Noble Prize 👭….we do have influential powers 🤔🤔
Mothers, we are amazing, talented, gifted and the most beautiful women on planet earth. We are the only living human being that can do several tasks at once with only two hands 🤹♀️, sometimes with little or no appreciation.
Refuse to be blinded or discouraged of your own self worth because of lack of appreciation. Bad moments don’t make bad mommies….It’s not a bad life… but just some days that we question ourselves.
