Being a mom can be hard…many times. There are days when you feel like no matter what you do, you’re just not good enough. We’ve all been there. Trust me when I tell you that no matter what you think, you are doing the best you can and that makes you a great mom.
I have so many expectations for myself as a mom and when I don’t meet them or exceed them I instantly feel like a failure. I have to remind myself that it’s okay. You don’t have to be the best at everything you do. And every single baby on Earth is bound to get sick at some point of their lives. I just create so many non-realistic expectations for myself, I’m sure we all do. Even though I am a stay at home mom who blogs, I certainly don’t have my whole life together. There are days when the dishes are still dirty, the bedrooms are still messy, stress levels are through the roof. It’s not always going to be perfect. We have to remind ourselves that we are all doing what we can to raise our babies to the best of our abilities.
Don’t ever compare yourself to another mom. It’s like looking through a window, you only see a certain part of their life. It may seem as if their life is perfect but you don’t know the daily struggles that they deal with. You are amazing. You too have great kids and you are perfect just the way you are.
We all strive to be the best at everything we do and that pertains to every single aspect of our lives. Just remember that you have a loving child that already thinks you are the best human being in the world and that’s what matters at the end of the day.
