What I Have Learned From Motherhood {So far}

Motherhood is exciting, joyful, fun, trying and above all rewarding. Here are a few things I have learned about Motherhood {so far}.

Thank you to my three little men for all that you have taught me. I honestly cannot even comprehend the fact that I have almost been a mother for 4 years. Time does fly by WAY too fast. Over this time frame I have learned so much about myself through my kids.

I have learned to live in the moment. I cherish all of the precious time that I spend with each of my kids because these moments pass by far too quickly. I am extremely excited to see what the future has in store for my boys but for right now I do not want to miss out on anything.

I have learned that it is not about me. My children come first. There are many changes that occur when you become a mother, but I do not look at them as sacrifices. I could not picture my life without my amazing children. I am truly blessed.

 

I have learned being a parent is NOT a competition. There is no such thing as perfection when it comes to parenting. It can be troubling to see so many moms who I swear are like wonder-woman. There will be good days and bad days but at the end of the day I know that I have done the best that I could for my kids.

I have learned the saying “The best things in life are free,” is really true. The happiness and joy from one little hug or kiss is incredible. I fear the day when those little things stop. I am going to spend the rest of my life trying to make them happy. The smile that is expressed from them warms my heart.

I have learned to forgive myself. When my oldest son was born I put a huge emphasis on breast feeding. I wanted it to work for us more than anything. I was utterly disappointed when the doctor told me that I had to supplement with formula and my son was not gaining weight. I felt like a huge failure as a mom. I stressed out about the decision and kept thinking about what I did wrong. I can now forgive myself for not being able to do what I planned. With children, nothing goes as planned, EVER.

I have learned that there are days that I just want to give up and call it quits. Some days my boys make me question my sanity {10 Things Moms of Boys MUST Know}. If it was not for those days then I would not realize how amazing these boys really are. Every day that are challenging me and helping me become a better person.

What I Have Learned from Motherhood

I have learned humility. You think you know what to expect and how to be a parent, but you don’t. I now have an open mind when starting anything with my kids. No matter what you do that is right or wrong, your child will throw tantrums, cry, or even scream in public. For all the people who stare and shake their heads at me when I am out and something as simple as not buying candy or a toy creates scene, there is no reason to judge me or my parenting skills.
