I have started hosting a really fun show on YouTube and Facebook sharing real talk for real moms from real moms. I will link all of the episodes at the bottom of this post. I wanted to take a minute though and answer the questions I normally ask my guests. I wanted to answer in this format so that moms know where I stand as the host of this show. My heart is to open the door for more real talk for real moms!
There is a graphic I keep seeing that has me a bit unsettled. I have scrolled past it. I have ignored it. I have tried to understand the heart behind it. However, I just can’t. So let’s talk about that quote that says, “Your kids don’t need a perfect mom. They need a happy one.” Guess what. Your kids don’t need a happy mom!
Your Kids Don’t Need a Happy Mom
Let’s just be honest for a minute. Mothering is hard. If you think about it, it’s one of the most ridiculous jobs ever. Here’s a tiny human. Take care of all of their physical, emotional, and educational needs. Oh and make sure they turn into incredible adults ready to face the giant crazy world they have to live in. There are beautiful moments. Please don’t misunderstand me. I’m just saying the journey isn’t all sunshine and flowers. Then you add life to the equation. Suddenly, not only do I have to mother. I have to figure out mothering when life is hard. Let me share a bit of what has gotten me through the lunacy lately.
