Let’s face it. Being a mom is a super tough job. Fun, but hard. We have little minds to teach, little hearts to love and little bodies to nurture. We barely have time to take care of ourselves. It’s exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time. I wrote up this fun post filled with mom quotes to honour all you gals out there.
All you gals doing your best yet feeling like you’re failing. Trust me, you’re not. You’re amazing, you’re loved and cherished. And I know Sunday, May 10th is Mother’s Day but why do we have to wait until then to honour ourselves?
These mom quotes are a gentle reminder for you of how awesome you are
When I talked to my kid about mother’s day he says the same thing all the time. ” I love you every day and not sure why I have to abide by one day to make you feel special. You are super special to me every day”.
Ya, I got a great kid.
But he makes such a valid point. As moms, we sometimes do need reassurance and we like to feel special but why does it only have to be on Mother’s Day? Why can’t it be just whenever?
That’s why I wrote up this post of mom quotes as a gentle reminder that you are amazing and special all the damn time.
I raised Julian alone and we had little to no money so I never got ‘presents’ for Mother’s Day. His life was my gift.
Life as a single mom
I’m not gonna say being a single mom is harder than being a mom with a co-parent, but I’ll tell ya, it certainly comes with different struggles. Ask any single mom what her struggles are and you may not have time to hear them all.
But honestly, parenting has got to be one of the toughest jobs on the planet. We are raising, and responsible for, these little creatures of the future. If you’re like me, chances are, you often feel like you aren’t doing a good enough job.
We are just too hard on ourselves. We beat ourselves up all the time and constantly feel like we could be doing a better job. I know I felt like that all too often while raising Julian and to this day (he’s 31 now) he insists I was the best mom ever.
But life as a single mom, sometimes we feel the need to play both roles, mom, and dad, but you don’t. Stop doing that if you think that’s what your child needs.
Your child simply wants love, guidance, structure, and treats!!
I wanted to find a really good video for you on YouTube about kids and moms and I think this one blows them all out of the water. Grab your tissues and enjoy. This video made me cry and miss my kid even more.
The best thing about being a mom is…
I have to be honest, I’m really glad I only have one child. That’s all I ever wanted. I wasn’t sure if being a mom was even for me. Most women have no clue how to be moms. Did we have good role models? Many of us didn’t unfortunately.
As hard as the job is, the rewards are so amazing!! If you’re blessed like I am, your kid even becomes your best friend in time. I never imagined in a million years how close my son and I would become. We all hope to have that relationship with our children.
So what’s the best thing about being a mom? EVERYTHING!! There is not just one thing. Life itself becomes fun and amazing.
Feeling like a failure as a mom
Independent of the fact that being a mom is rewarding, self-doubt creeps in all too often. Moms are really hard on themselves. Too many of us think we are doing a bad job. Feeling like a failure as a mom is a very common thing actually.
Hence this post. I figured it was time to write up a blog all about mom quotes, best mom quotes, and all other kinds of quotes on motherhood just to remind all you moms out there of one thing…YOU ROCK!!
