Adulting is hard, but let's be real...Momming can be even harder. There are so many sweet moments as a mom; from first giggles and first steps to your kids leaving love letters to you.
But this isn't about the sweet moments.
This is about the hard moments. The moments where you feel like hiding in the bathroom and playing Candy Crush...the moments you scream at your kids and mom guilt sets in...the moments where you can see yourself throwing in the towel and walking out the door, because you haven't had a good nights sleep in years and can't handle the temper tantrums anymore. Today is about THOSE moments, when you are at the end of your rope and you don't know what else to do or who to turn to.
I have heard so many moms tell me they feel like complete failures and feel so alone. I have met so many who didn't have great examples growing up so they feel like they are just "winging it" and crossing their fingers that their kids will turn out okay. And I hear you. I see you. I am hear to let you know YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Mom Mentor is me...a mom of 15 years, and a wife of almost 17 years, who has learned some great things along the way. A mom who has felt the pressures of colicky babies and could be found crying in the fetal position on the bedroom floor, because I felt my brain was going to explode. I am a mom who had a three year old that threw such intense fits that I thought she was demon possessed! I was that mom who got the looks at the restaurant when my child decided that it was a good time to throw a massive screaming fit; I felt ashamed, embarrassed and thought, "What am I doing wrong?"
So you are not alone. I will share some of the best advice I have received, and some of the best lessons I have learned over the years.
If you have questions or want to know about a certain subject, leave a comment and I will do my best to cover it.
One thing I won't do...I won't pretend to know it all. I am an imperfect mom (my kids will attest to that), just like you, who is learning, growing, and acquiring wisdom as I go.
So let's get real and go on this journey together. You are not alone.
