Sometimes thinking about the past weekend really helps me get through Mondays. This past weekend was a great one. I was able to enjoy watching my sons participate in a swim meet on Saturday. They are really good swimmers and continue to amaze me. My children are truly blessings to me.
Motherhood is the hardest, most fulfilling, and best job that I will ever have. So, I treasure the moments when I get to watch them and pat myself on the back for doing a great job with them. Yes, I said pat myself on the back. Although, they make me feel appreciated. I fully recognize that I am the “bombmom.com.” That may sound a bit overconfident. However, too often, we, Moms, look and the bumps in our children’s lives and think that we have failed them in some way. Our children, like us, are not perfect. Ideally, we would all like to learn from the mistakes of others. However, there are times that we are at the center of the lesson. Therefore, I take these situations as opportunities for my children and I. Note: I am not talking about severe life lessons as the result of criminal activity or worse. I am referring to the natural bumps along the way, like forgetting to put their homework in their backpack, talking to much in class, or finding out that someone was not really their friend, etc.
We, Moms, need to give ourselves credit for doing our best. Our best is what our children need. When we give them our best, so do they in return. You can enjoy the fruits of your labor now and in the future when your children are older. To all the mothers who read my blog, I officially proclaim that you, too, are the “bombmom.com.” Have a great start to the week!
