Have any of my mommy friends felt like you have all failed as moms? I know I have! I know each day that passes I look at other moms who seem to have it all together(I know, there goes that comparing thing again).
Some days though it’s just hard. It’s hard to look at other families or moms and see that they have their crap together.
When here I am doing the best I can and a lot of times it doesn’t seem to me like I’m doing quite enough.
So here is to the moms who skip on there hair and make up some mornings because those few extra precious Minutes of sleep mean the world. To messy kitchens and last nights dishes still lingering in the sink. To the nights where you hardly slept because your baby was up sick half the night. To the dark circles that often times take a place under our eyes on our beautiful faces. To the moms who act as a mother and a father. To the moms who stay at home all day with their babies then turn around and take care of their significant other when they return home from work. To the moms who get their babies up, dress them, feed them, load them into the car, take them to school, then head to work themselves. To the mom whose clothes don’t always match. Whose clothes have stains from the baby throwing up. To the ones who make time for themselves in whatever ways they can. The ones who hear Micky mouse club house constantly. The ones who cook, clean, and still make time to take a shower every now and again. The ones who maybe skipped the cleaning to sneak away for a quiet shower. The ones who grocery shop with kids hanging out of and onto the cart.
The ones who sometimes feel as if they aren’t doing enough, aren’t enough. This one is for you.
The ones who call you mommy know good and well that you are enough. In their eyes you can do no wrong(until they hit teenage years of course. Hehe). The ones who see you as super mom. They see you as so much more than you see yourself. You’re doing the best you can. But sometimes, we need to be reminded of that.
Sometimes we need someone to step in and let us know we rock. We are enough and we do a lot for those around us.
So here is your reminder today. Whoever you are. Whoever needs to hear this today. Whatever momma is struggling with holding on.
If you feel you’re barely holding on by a thread some days…you aren’t alone. You’re never alone.
Keep on keeping on and keep that busy, precious, beautiful, pretty, talented head up. And know you do so much. And you are good enough.
