The little moments are what you live for when the children are young. When your child grabs your finger for the very first time. When they laugh. When they say “mama.” Sometimes it feels like a dream and you say to yourself Let it be Real.
Then they grow up, you have more firsts good and bad. You mess up, you lose your cool, you figure out you are an IMperfect Mom. Just like the rest of us who say Don’t Let it be Real in those moments.
This is for all the REAL moms
The ones who know you are not going to have the perfect children, the perfect body, the perfect home. This is for all those that say, “you know what, I am doing my best. My children know I love them and would fight and die for them.” “My house has been ignored for several days now.” “My children had mac and cheese and hot dogs for lunch today.” “I haven’t worked out since my littlest was born…unless you count running after them, lifting them, never putting them down, never sitting down, being jumped on, crawled on, flipped on, piggybacks, horsey rides, leg pulls…”
What makes a child great?
When they know they are loved. When they have an exceptional support system. Guess what? In order for you to give that to them, you need it yourself. This is a place you can come to get support and love. Other Imperfect Moms that will tell you it’s all good! You can reset and start again.
Do you know what else makes a child great? I think it’s most important and I want to tell you this secret. Something most of us forget isn’t actually a secret. We never talk about it like we made a pinky promise but it needs to be talked about!!!
YOU NEED TO LOVE YOURSELF!
Take time for yourself. Every day. Even if it’s 5 minutes.
It WILL make a difference in your life and your children’s lives.
Let’s discover HOW together. My promise to you is to let you know my ideas of ME time. I promise to listen to your ideas, questions, comments, concerns, and struggles.
Let’s get real together and support other imperfectly real moms.
Peace and Balance to you all,
