Having the joy of being a mom is something I want never to take for granted. Motherhood has stretched me in all kinds of ways, and it is certainly more challenging than I could have imagined. I remember going out to the grocery store when Liam was a newborn and realizing I didn't have enough arms! How would I live with a kid without three?!? I was seeing moms with their kids and wanting to stop each one and tell them they were doing a great job and basically were my heros!! Lol. Serious I considered it. I didn't realize how unfriendly toward kids the standardized world is (bathrooms people... bathrooms) or nursing momma's, (just a place to sit, that's all we ask for.) I was constantly in awe of the mighty responsibility of caring for this soul I'd been entrusted with... I try not to helicopter. I try not to worry. I try not to be over the top, but believe me motherhood has brought out the bear in me, momma bear to be exact, at times were I roar and shelter with un-ashamed ferocity. Why? Because being a mom is being gentle and fierce wrapped up in the same sweater( or cardigan if that's your jam) we live on coffee, constantly clean and reclean, answer endless questions, hide in the bathroom and pretend to poop not just have a quick pee for the sake of privacy and snuggle our little bears until the sun goes down. I believe motherhood is changing me. It's exposing my selfish ways and showing where the real gold in the world lies. It is in the innocent lives we shelter. And do our best to mother.... here's to you momma's. You're a hero. And you're life is the most beautiful fulfillment of love on the planet. 💕 #Mom #momlife #liamgabriel #toallwhoserve #dogoodwork #motherhood #dayslikethis .
