Doubting yourself as a mother? You are not alone
Ever doubt yourself as a stay at home mom? I know I do sometimes.. well most of the time. I want to say that YOU are NOT alone!! TRUST me when I say this, you are not alone.
The other day my son says “Mom where is daddy?” I say “He’s at work love” he then asks me more “Where is papaw? Where is Nana? Where is J? Grandma? Grandpa” I reply back “Baby they are all at work to make money” he says “You don’t work? You don’t make money?” That hit me right in the chest.
Having that conversation with my 3-year-old makes me feel low, like.. why am I not working and bringing something to the table like everyone else does. But I realise and I do have to remind myself. Like com’on girl you do work you just don’t get paid and not so often get rewarded or applaud for. I get to watch our son go through milestones as he grows, I get to watch my son grow as his own individual human being. I love it! Yes, some days are tough some days are the worst some days are amazing, till’ this day I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Being a mother is the most amazing, exhausting, selfless and beautiful job anyone can have. Embrace your mother hood! You are an amazing mother don’t you ever doubt yourself. Remember you are raising our future I am raising our future.
