Motherhood is probably the most difficult job in the world. While there is no exact formula to get it right, love, compassion and affection make it totally worth it. Surviving motherhood and keeping your sanity intact can be tough but that’s the beauty of this relationship. Enjoy your motherhood even the crazy parts because 15 or 20 years later you will miss this craziness. Have a good laugh about it because Motherhood is:
- Dreaming about a good night's sleep.
- Reheating your coffee for the third time and still not being able to drink it.
- Googling your kid's homework because you have no idea how to solve algebra.
- Devouring a brownie for breakfast after the kids leave for school.
- Never seeing the bottom of the pile of laundry and dishes.
- Tripping on lego and screaming every now and then.
- Skimming through the drawer to find a pair of socks that actually match.
- Eating baby food for lunch because you are too tired to cook something.
- Cleaning up the spilled stuff infinite times a day.
- Cringing at the sound of Dora, Barney and Teletubbies(ughh).
- Wearing the same three outfits all year round.
- Making trips to the grocery store again and again because you keep forgetting something important like milk or diapers.
- Organizing, reorganizing and reorganizing the cabinets and closets and still not being able to find a thing when you actually need it.
- Making a quick bun of your hair for almost every event(who has the time for a hairstyle).
- Picking up toys, color pencils, books, shoes etc. from all over the house all day long.
- Turning a five minutes shower into a two minutes shower because your toddler starts to scream every time you go to the bathroom.
- Running to the emergency room at the hospital because somehow your toddler has stuck a peanut up his nose.
- Unsuccessfully trying to get play dough out of the carpet, sofa table and your daughter's hair(I simply hate that stuff).
- Looking for the imaginary monsters under the bed and shooing them away with your magic wand.
- Welcoming the endless list of chores with open heart.
- Patiently listening to criticism over your parenting techniques.
- Sighing with relief when you see your child's report card.
- Pinning tips and hacks to get stains out of clothes on Pinterest.
- Fantasizing about a cup of tea that hasn't been used by anyone to dip biscuits.
- Miserably watching your toddler turn the house upside down at 6 am.
- Reading the red riding hood for the millionth time to your kids.
- Keeping an eye on kids like a hawk in case something drastic happens.
- Watching your precious stuff get flushed down the toilet.
- Getting small things like buttons, dice and beads out of your resistant toddler's mouth.
- Wishing that you had soaked the dishes in the sink the night before.
- Calling your mother for advice for an urgent parental emergency.
- Frantically searching for the keys all over the house and finally finding them in the laundry basket.
- Getting a breakfast in bed for your birthday.
- Getting fashion advise from your cuties.
- Lots of hugs and kisses(I love those!).
