I gotta say that this post isn’t going to sound like I’ve got it all together, because I don’t. Being a mom is probably one of the best gifts life has given me. But, the most trying. I always swore as a child that I would never have children and then when life threw me a curveball and I had our first, I realized, what if I had never experienced this? If you’re blessed to be a mother, do not take it for granted, because there are millions of women wanting to take your place.
So balance. What is that? Running a insanely busy business, so busy that we’re booked/back ordered 13 months in advance right now ( I know, super awesome time management skills on my part, poor Glen ) and being a mama to three under six, Is a bit of a whirlwind sometimes. Sometimes I need to catch my breath, sometimes I feel like I’m going crazy. Between the clients, the kids and finding myself, I forget to give all three attention. But, in the moments when I can just be in my babies attention. Life is good.
I think one of my most favourite moments of being a mama is teaching them how to be independent little humans. The exciting first bites of real food, taking their first steps or saying their first slurred words. But I think some of the most special moments that I hold near & dear to my heart has been breastfeeding my kids. It has been a process and something I’ve had to work hard at, but those moments in the early mornings or when we crawl into bed, have been some of the most valuable moments I treasure. My kids are very young right now 6, 4 and 1, so I’m sure the moments will just continue to grow. But right now, in the haze, the little things are what matter most. It’s the things you can’t pay for. Yes, cute moccasins, stylish hair-do’s and gorgeous bags make the stage a bit more fun. But in the end, you wont remember that. You will remember the special moments you spend with each child and the moments that you will never get back. Kids grow wayyyy too fast!
