You got this mommas…
Every week late Sunday afternoon I curl up somewhere with a beverage, music, blanket, and my iPad and start to write a post that will appear here.
I always try to find something I hope that will resonate with someone. Maybe help. Make someone laugh. Feel better.
The irony that my maternal instincts kick in, even when dealing with something like a blog post isn’t lost on me.
As I write this – it’s Mother’s Day. I will share with you that while I was never a 100 percent about getting married I always knew I wanted to be a Mom.
I am far from a traditional Mom and my own daughter sometimes compares me to a teenager on occasion, but I have always and will always put her first.
I worry and overthink when it comes to her. I try not to Tiger Mom her too much. I maybe get too much joy out of singing loudly to a song she doesn’t like in our car rides together.
Meals can sometimes be more like snacks.
She definitely gets too much time on her iPad.
I let her have two swear words a day.
My heart hurts when she is at her Dad’s, even though when she’s home we are rarely in the same room.
I love being silly with her. That she is almost taller than me.
Being a Mom is the best thing, deciding to do it alone was one of the hardest decision I ever made. I still worry about it, but I also needed to be a healthy, happy Mom for G. I still have my moments…
I will never be a PTA Mom. I send gift cards and emails to school. I am thankful for her teachers and her grandparents who have helped me to raise such a beautiful, funny, smart and kind spirit.
I don’t look like the other Moms with my tattoos and piercings, but I look like her and when she asks me to I dress up or down – I do. I love that we both like Vans and fun t-shirts.
In all of this ramble this is my point… no one is the perfect Momma. She doesn’t exist. But what you are is a Momma who is doing amazing on her own terms with her whole heart and that’s what it’s all about.
At least I hope so.
You do got this Mommas
