The Secrets of Motherhood

When you become a mom, you become apart of a special club. A club that is reserved for women who have spread their love to another being. Often people say motherhood is beautiful. Motherhood is easy. Motherhood is perfect.

They forget to say a lot!

Motherhood is messy. The messes start from the minute you conceive. You are throwing up, you are losing your independence, you are losing your body, but instead you are gaining the biggest love you could ever imagine.

Motherhood is messy after giving birth. From the spit ups to diaper changes and everything in between. I never knew a small creature could make such a mess but it is the best thing and I would never change it for the world.

Motherhood is exhausting. It is okay to be tired. It is okay to feel like a bad mom. Caring for a new human is mentally and physically exhausting. Take that nap or bath, moms need alone time too.

Motherhood is terrifying. You are in charge of a human. You have the ability to mold a life and that is a huge responsibility. You are responsible for this child. You are their provider of food, love and shelter. You are at their beck and call 24/7 and it is scary. They will fall, they will cry, and guess what, they will be okay.

Motherhood is a journey that is different for everyone. Try not to compare yourself because you are doing the best for you and your baby in your situation. Motherhood is beautiful because of its complexity! You are a good mom. You are the best mom for your baby and never let anyone tell you differently.

    I have not, yet, joined the elite club of motherhood. I hope to one day. However, this post is beautiful, because, to me, this is everything that comes along with it. It reminds me of all of the sacrifices and beauty that surrounds being a mother. Thus, it makes me appreciate my mother, and all of the other mothers, more. This was beautiful.

    Mothers are awesome people. I miss my mommy reading this. I think that she is one person in this world who loved me the most. I carry that love with me and it gives me strength long after she was gone.

    Motherhood is a journey that never ends. The tough years, the messy faces, the loads of laundry are just part and parcel of it. Rewards are kisses, hugs, and so much love. It is the most tiring and yet most rewarding profession ever!

    I’m not a mom yet, but I love all the things you mentioned in this article. For sure mums focus more on the positive sides of motherhood and skip describing all the unpleasant daily routines. 😉

    It’s so easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to other moms but we all know it’s a different journey and not all paths will be the same.
