9 Truths About Motherhood

Few other life events are as transformative and monumental as becoming a mom. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, take time to reflect on and appreciate the complexity and beauty of your role. Being a mom is many things…

 

It’s rewarding:

There’s nothing like waking up to your baby’s huge smile every morning. Seeing her face light up when I walk in the room is priceless.

– Kimberly G.

 

It’s like having your own pep squad:

I feel so loved when I come home from a long day… that instant cry of joy, “MOMMY’S HOME…MOMMY!” makes my heart melt and all my worries disappear.

– Nicole C.

 

It’s eye opening:

I love seeing everything for the first time again and watching my son discover the world. A flower I’ve walked past 10 times and not noticed is now brought to my attention by a little boy yelling, “Momma, a flower!” It’s awesome.

– Emily A.

 

It’s exclusive:

I’m pretty sure all moms have a secret club – we’re all in this together, and we’ve ALL been there! I was never able to connect with other people the way I have since having children. Love the common bond we share.

– Sarah B.

 

It’s intense:

Only moms understand feeling utterly exhausted and completely fulfilled at the same time!

– Amanda M.

 

It’s messy:

No one ever told me that being a mom means learning how to take your shirt off without getting baby spit-up in your hair.

– Jen M.

 

It makes you feel present:

I didn’t know that I was missing anything before I had my daughter, but now that I am a mom, I realize I had never felt so complete and connected to everything around me.

– Carla V.

 

It’s very…social:

I never understood the value of a quiet shower or bath…or even just going to the bathroom by myself!

– Tatiana R.

 

It’s soul-quenching:

Being a mother is so much more than I imagined. I feel like I’ve found my purpose and it’s so empowering knowing that I have created and given life. There’s nothing like seeing my little one learn and grow – and knowing it’s all because of me.

– Steph B.
