If Only I Had Known {Momma Tips}

by Birth Without Fear on June 6, 2013

A small trip with two kids will take no less than an hour and a half

Doing your daughters hair will usually put you both in tears.

Having a good cry, is almost freeing. Its okay, go ahead.

One day your son will ask you if there is a bone in his penis. (Seriously, not kidding)

Its really hard to be angry when awoken at 6 am when your kid looks at you smiles and says “Hi Mama!”

Bribery doesn’t always work the way you plan it too. It can bite you in the butt, hard.

Our kids are WAY smarter than they lead us to believe.

Peanut Butter and Jelly is an acceptable dinner.

Feeling guilty about something, doesn’t help anyone. Its okay to let it go.  *deep breath* Better?

No matter how wonderful your kids are they will always drive you crazy some days.

Your house does not need to be spotless. Stop feeling guilty, I bet my house is as dirty as yours. It is okay.

You fully understand the concept of being mad at someone but still loving them.

The parent you were yesterday isn’t set in stone, you change and evolve every day. Just like your kids.

You can’t get tomorrow back, so do what you can today. If that is just getting up and putting a movie on, that is okay.

There will be some days you don’t think you can hack it as a parent. You can, I promise.

Your own mother will come spewing out of your own mouth at a moments notice.

Sometimes you are the one who needs the time out, it makes a difference.

You can’t always put everyone else first, you will lose your mind if you do.

Do something for you every day.

Being a parent is hard, rewarding, stressful, fantastic, and beautiful all wrapped into one. You do the best you can every day. Don’t be too hard on yourself. You are amazing, don’t forget it.
