"I was a really good mom
before I had kids."
Recently I saw a book with this title and I was curious so I put all my other readings aside, including Fifty Shades of Gray and began to read it.
Ask a woman about the moment she became a mother and she will give you a play by play recollection from the first contraction to her twenty hour delivery. Women remember this life changing experience.
The rest of it, motherhood, tends to become a blur of happy moments, tantrums, spit ups, tears, hugs, kisses, bed time stories, sleepless nights, lots of time spent at the parks and doing loads and loads of laundry.
From time to time you need to remind yourself to enjoy these moments, as routine as they might seem, these moments are your child's childhood.
With simplicity and humor, the authors of, "I Was a Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids", Trisha Ashworth and Amy Nobile discuss the array of issues every mother deals with. From feeling guilty and having high
self-expectations to trying to prioritize our lives and learning to live in the moment. The title is perfect! Only after you have your own children, you truly realize what it takes to raise them.
I love this Jewish Proverb:
"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers."
So let's all give ourselves a little break and celebrate Mothers Day.
