Motherhood exposed is an interesting theme this month .I like children. Before I became a mom I thought I would be the perfect role model to prevent this from happening to my child .
But guess what?
Motherhood is my biggest challenge .
It’s a challenge for self improvement when you don’t particularly want to improve.
It’s a challenge for discipline when you are tired .
It’s a challenge for tongue control when you just want to lash out .
It’s a challenge for what you want over what the little human needs .
It’s a challenge to remodel your dreams and aspirations so that motherhood and the life you have built up, dance together .
It’s a challenge to keep the romance alive in the marriage,when all you want to do is sleep .
It’s a challenge to travel to exotic locations because, what will baby eat ?
It’s a challenge to potty train, as no one taught this when you were in school ,college or anywhere for that matter!
It’s a challenge to feed all the time. Too little, too much, right food and wrong food. Brain food and those improving EQ.
It’s a challenge to watch Shinchan on a loop .
It’s a challenge to find the right friends your child can hang out with (read impossible )
It’s a challenge to stop worrying even when they are 40 years old .
But Motherhood is a package deal .
With all the above,the single thing which makes it all worth it,is the LOVE .
Pure unadulterated love, that the baby exudes every moment of every day .
The innocent smile ,the tear filled eyes when you leave home for work.
In a world full of masks and half hearted relationships, motherhood wins the prize .
Each time .
So it’s okay.
If you are not perfect .
It’s okay if you need a break .
It’s okay if you are not doing everything the supermom next door is doing .
It’s okay if you don’t make all your meals from scratch .
It’s okay if you couldn’t breastfeed .
It’s okay if you have to work .
It’s okay if you give up your career because you want to stay with your kids .
It’s okay whatever you decide .
Because you are the best mommy that your child can have .
Whatever you or don’t do will be a signal for them to learn and do more .
Motherhood is a fun adventure. Disney world and monster world together .
