Here's To Mothers


Growing up, my mom used to always tell us, 
"Don't be like me, be better than me!"

I never imagined  having a child, but the main thing I want for her is to be better than me. Not saying in  a sense of something is wrong with us {lol}, there is just always room for improvement. There is always things that can be done better, new things to learn and try. I want her to take the chances I didn't or couldn't.
I always strive to push her actions and her thinking to be better than mine was growing up. It all starts with the first teacher and role model, Mommy! Little girls always want to be just like their "perfect" moms. Now I wouldn't say I'm perfect but I definitely try to be the perfect mother. I don't have a choice my child does NOT let me breath {lbs}. Instilling common sense, logical thinking, different views, understanding, security. My daughter is an AMAZING young queen, with a heart of gold. She tries to be to me what I am to her. You notice you’re doing a good job when you see them re-acting things. She creates “scenes” with her dolls that are like encounters we have. She treats her baby dolls and me the way I treat her and the other kids. A good level of discipline, love, friendship, comfort and most of all creating a trust. I want her to know that whatever happens in life that she will always have me and she will always be able to come to me. I came across an entry about single mothers who try hard.

“To the mom that feels alone, whether in a room by herself or standing in a crowd...

You are enough.

You are important.

You are worthy.

This is a phase of life for us. This is a really really hard, challenging, crazy phase of life.

In the end it will all be worth it. But for now it’s hard. And it's hard for so many of us in many different ways. We don't always talk about it, but it's hard and it's not just you.

You are enough.

You are doing your best.

Those little eyes that look up at you - they think you are perfect. They think you are more than enough.

Those little hands that reach out to hold you - they think you are the strongest. They think you can conquer the world.

Those little mouths eating the food you gave them - they think that you are the best because their bellies are full.

Those little hearts that reach out to touch yours - they don’t want anything more. They just want you.

Because you are enough. You are more than enough, mama.

You. Are. Amazing. “

Those little ones look up to us & it’s our job to be everything they need. This one is to the strong women doing their all to be the best they can for their babies. You’re doing an amazing job. Despite anything you think you do wrong, that’s one thing we’re doing right, and that’s really all that matters!

until next time!
