Being a Mom Looks Like…


:: displaying the same enthusiasm for playing the same game over and over and over again

:: endless amount of patience after being asked the same exact question

:: always doing laundry or dishes or grocery shopping

:: being able to locate any special toy, sock, hat, or favorite shirt

:: pretending to look lovingly at your child when they wake you bright and early every morning

:: caring for someone else’s body functions – day & night

:: having superhero arms and strength to carry your 30lb child at a moment’s notice – anywhere, anytime

:: resisting the natural urge to drop said child after they head butt you so hard you want to cry

:: jamming to your kid’s music unintentionally when they aren’t even in the car

:: magical boo-boo kissing powers

:: exhausting to the core but absolutely awesome all at the same time

    I literally laughed out loud with…resisting the natural urge to drop said child after they head butt you… It’s so true! That is the real superpower of a Mom!

      I know, right? Along with sticking your hand out to catch puke instead of pulling away. Oh the glamorous life!
