Happy Mom’s Day

This Mother’s Day is extra special to me.

Why, you may ask, makes this mother’s day so significant?

First of all, I am amazingly blessed to still have my mama for another mother’s day.

This past year, my sweet mom, had some very serious health problems. I spent many hours praying for her to “come back to us” and to begging God to ” wait a little longer“, before taking her Home.

God heard my prayers and I am so thankful to still have my mom here to celebrate another mother’s day.

I know some great women that have lost their moms this year, be thankful for every moment you have with your mom.

Don’t think about all the work that goes into making your mom feel special on mothers day.

Now, that I am a mom, I truly realize all my mom did for me growing up. So, one day to show her my appreciation, is nothing compared to the stress I caused her.

Secondly, I am beyond thankful to have my children to pamper me for Mother’s day.

I have had to watch so many amazing parents lose their precious children, and my heart hurt with them.

I know, most of us moms, just want to sleep late, have a clean house, and be pampered.

I want that too, but I also want my kids to spend every moment with me on mother’s day. With no complaining.

This year I pray with all my heart for the mama’s having to exist during mothers day without their mama or their child.

I pray they God comforts them and heals their broken hearts.

Lastly, I am so thankful, to have an amazing husband that will stay up all night smoking a Brisket for me to eat on mother’s day.

My husband makes sure I have an amazing day, and appreciates me by letting me rest on mom’s day.

I know, there are so many single moms raising their children all alone. They are the strongest women and they make it looks easy, but I know the weight of world must be heavy on them.

I admire all you single moms out there, having to be the mom and the dad, you’re the real VIPs of mother’s day!

So, Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing moms! I hope you all have the best day! No matter what you’re going through this mother’s day, just know, you are not alone.

Confessions of a Mom

Let’s face it motherhood is hard! We have to keep these little human beings alive while also trying to be a perfect mom.

We all have those moments where we feel like we have failed as a mother. I would like to share my moments of shame, my confessions of a mom.

I have given my children wipe baths.

Ok yes, sometimes the days are exhausting and instead of a bath my kids get wiped down with a wet wipe or wash rag.

I have fed my kids cereal for dinner

Sometimes I do not want to even look at the oven to cook a meal so they get a nice bowl of cereal.

I have forgotten the sunscreen

Yes, my kids have gotten burnt by the sun because of their forgetful mother. At least they got pampered by mom with aloe and popsicles.

I have overslept

When the world was still open and the kids were in school, there were days they were late to school because of dear old mama pushing that snooze button.

I have cried in my car

When my kiddos were younger, there were those dreaded moments when both would be screaming at the same time. So yes, I have cried in the car, supermarket, Church, pretty much everywhere.

I have lied to my children

“Yep, Chucky Cheese is closed today.”

Even with all my shameful mom moments, I still think I am a pretty good mom. They have everything they need, they are healthy and they are loved.
