Momming Is Hard

Being a mom is hard! Lol. I don’t know if our moms, the women in our lives, or Clair Huxable, and Aunt Viv made this look easy. However, it’s hard! I’ve been a mom for exactly one year and a day today. I’ve been “mommy Bree” for exactly 2 years,7 months, and 23 days, to be exact.

Being a mother to two girls is hard! Im not only a mother, but I am a momprenuer. That means that I have two full time jobs that never stops. My mind is always racing, there are always people touching me! Don’t get me started on the anxiety and depression spells.

I don’t know how our moms and infamous TV show moms made this look so easy. However, I do know that being a mom is an instinct. You just get it. It’s like something clicks the moment you look in your babies eyes. I’ve lived 26 years, but my true journey really began one year and one day ago.

Until next time xoxo

The 3 Ms: Marriage, Motherhood, & Myself

Being a mommy and a wife is such a blessing! Everyday I get to share my life with two people who mean the world to me. It is so fulfilling to put a smile on their faces. The two of them are my entire heart!

The love I have for my husband and daughter pushes me to strive to be the best wife and mother that I can be. From dawn to dusk, I dedicate myself to being all I can be for them and I won’t ever regret it! But one thing that I could do a lot better at, is taking care of myself. I have to remember to go just as hard for myself! The day my daughter was born I said that my life is no longer my own. But that’s only partially true. My life is not JUST my own anymore.

So, I am putting myself back on my to-do list! I am going to take time to do the things that I enjoy and that my mind, body, and soul needs! I am going to be the example that my daughter needs by loving myself beyond words, so that she always values herself and knows that she too is important. We try to be everything for everyone but we won’t be any good for anyone if we dont first take care of ourselves. 

Until next time xoxo

There Is No One Size Fits All!

Diapers are NOT one size fits all…neither is potty training!

At my daughter’s FIRST birthday party, I was bombarded by the question, “is she potty trained yet?”. To be honest, I hadn’t even thought about it yet. The very next day, I went out and bought all the supplies needed for successful potty training. We were behind and this must get done now! (Or so I was made to believe).

I got online.

I read all the books.

I asked all the questions.

I had a full proof plan! In just 3 days she would be potty trained, and in one week she would be nighttime trained. Right? WRONG! She didn’t even sit on the potty seat for the first 3 days!

I felt like such a failure. People’s well intended advice turned to criticism. And I went out to buy yet another box of diapers!

A year later, my daughter is FINALLY POTTY TRAINED! AND it was not due to any fancy manual I read! Her and I got here on our own journeys, at our own time. See, she’s not any other child and I’m not any other mom. We are an unique duo! What worked for others did not work for us and what worked for us may not work for you. Motherhood is like a fingerprint. We all have one, but they’re all vastly different. You would never try to change your fingerprint to be more like someone else’s.

I realized early on that motherhood is not one size fits all. Although, there are tons of helpful advice out there, I have to be true to myself, and rock it out with works best for me and my mini me!
