Have you ever read a blog and said; Wow, I really wish I could meet her?! I do that at least once a week when I read Chelsea's words. Not only does she have a LOVE for HLD but her heart and soul is just inspiring. This post will steal your heart too; I can't wait for you to "meet" her.
Love and Happiness,
Ash & The Boys
Hey tired mama!
I see you with your messy hair and your snot stained shirt. I see those bags under your eyes and
the child that’s about to pull your left arm out of its socket. I see you and I cheers you! You are
doing an amazing job!
This motherhood thing ain’t easy, but you’re doing the best you can.
There are days when you pat yourself on the back for the super healthy lunch you served and the
fact that you showered two days in a row.
But if you’re anything like me, those days don’t happen as often as the days that you’re late to
play group and you leave the house wearing two different shoes.
Yes, sometimes your child watches Elmo for six hours straight or dinner is a collection of snacks
pulled from the pantry, but that’s okay!
The fact that you wonder if you’re good enough shows that you ARE!
You’re tired, but remember it’s because you’re an awesome mom who’s there for her kiddos,
every single step of the way, staying up late to get things done and waking up early to get things
done, and waking up throughout the night to chase off monsters and nurse hungry babies.
It’s so hard now mama but these days will fly by; embrace them while you can. You’ll look back
one day and it will all be just a memory.
But do me a favor and remember one thing.
Don’t forget to take care of yourself!
Dishes, laundry, and even bills, can wait a day.
Go take a nap, a Xanax, or better yet, a shower.
And don’t be scared to ask for help.
Put your kids in their crib with a book and some toys if you just need a second.
The world may judge you, but I know I won’t judge you.
I know what it’s like to be so, so tired.
And so, so happy.
Because this mom thing is hard, but it’s so, so good
And right now I know you’re doing the best you can!
