Sometimes I feel bad for wanting more than just being a mommy. Those times when I worked full-time while aK was growing up, I missed some days with him. While I took care of other people’s children and taught them things, I sacrificed my time with my child who I could have been giving all my knowledge and time to. But I would never feel satisfied just being a homemaker. It’s not a bad thing to be one. I, now, know how it feels to be a stay-home mom. Not because I have to be, but because I want to be. I want to be there for the things I lost out on with Apollo. The girls are still very young. Practically just born. It isn’t fair for them to share their milestones with random sitters, and not me, who wants to be able to remember those moments.
Its not uncommon to yell at your kids to correct and control their bad behaviours. Children aren’t bad, but sometimes their actions are. If parents don’t tell them whats wrong, and unacceptable..then they wont learn the difference between good, and bad. Yelling, sometimes seem like the only way they hear you. Because like most kids, and even people are too busy thinking about themselves, they lose their mind about others.
So by all means.. yell at them, when they need to hear it.
This year I said, I would take the time to dress-up, and put some make-up on every morning even if im not heading out to anything important. Well, I this this article sums-up every ‘busy’ moms out there. Im talking about moms who are actually dedicated to being moms, and then some. Because lets be honest, we all know that one mom, who only uses the title because she does have children after all, but is actually far from being ‘A MOM’. 😒
Happy First Birthday to my beautiful baby girl. A year ago today, she blessed us with her presence, brought joy, and laughter into our lives. Her personality shines so bright, her humour fills the room, she is the sweetest love.
When J, and I first found out we were going to have a girl, I had mixed feelings about it. Afraid, I didn’t know, or wouldn’t know how to raise one because, I grew up tomboyish. But, just as anyone who is blessed with a baby, everything is a learning process. It had nothing to do with whether or not she was a boy, or girl. What mattered was, who she was on a day-to-day basis. She has made this year, an unforgettable one. She made our time together such a blast, and I couldn’t have spent the long days any better, without her. She fills our hearts with so much love. It’s an amazing feeling to be her mom. So thankful, God, allowed us to be her parents.
We love you so much baby girl!!
This video is sad. It took this father to send his kids a “death” letter to get them to stop for a second, and think about the parent they’ve set to the back burner time, and time again. They cried as soon as they thought their dad had passed. How sad!
I understand that when you start your own life, you tend to have less time for the people who used to consume your time, and effort. Sometimes it’s not a matter of not wanting to be there for them, but time, circumstances just can’t get you there. But occasions that are important, must always be prioritized.
Ex. Anytime anyone ever needed you in the family, for whatever small or big, one should make all the effort to make it, and be there. Friends, should find the effort to see each other. Promises should be kept, no matter what!
Said to be a mama bear, jumps to save baby cub just as he fell in the pool ❤
