Mom So Hard: Update on Being A Mom
I think we all know that I have had a run for my money with little King man. I have shared about it a few times. I hit the lowest of lows at some points being his mama. I know he came to our little family knowing exactly what hurt my heart and how to push my buttons and for that I am so grateful. Grateful?! Right… I know. The little stinker has become a little bit “easier” lately and by easier I mean, I don’t have rubber burns down my legs as often from him kicking me, scratches down my face as much, and he doesn’t tell me and scream at me to leave and go far as much. These were literally the things that happened from the moment he opened his little bright blue almond eyes in the morning all the way until he laid his little blonde head down at night to go to bed…it was hard, tears were on the daily, and my heart had never been so broken before. For that I am so grateful. But being a mom is hard.

King came to our little family knowing exactly the ways I needed to grow and be stretched. He knew where my weak points were/are and how to push me as far as he could so I could become stronger, more patient filled, and so much more happiness all together! He has filled our family with more joy than we ever knew existed. Being a mom is hard; I mom hard, so hard and it is the most rewarding thing I could have ever hoped for. There are more giggles, loves, kisses, and genuine true love. I never knew I could love a tiny human so much. Our whole world revolves around one little two year old. We couldn’t love it more.
Being a mom isn’t easy, in fact it is the hardest thing that I have ever done. I look at those hard, trying times and know that I made it through, I was strong (most of the time), learned so many different things, and came out being a better person. Plus I have this little sidekick now, that is my best friend, and I hope that one day I am his too.

I have 5 sweet children….two still at home, the other three are married, college, etc.. One of our children was a definite spirited child. The best book I ever, ever read was Raising Your Spirited Child. Hands down, helped me SO MUCH. This sweet child taught me SO MUCH (patience being #1), but also so much more. I was blessed early on to realize that her spirit was just TOO BIG for her little body and that is why she was so spirited. It was literally bursting out of her body. Two things that helped her the very most were making sure her bedtime routine (including bed time) stayed the sam. Getting the right amount of sleep, at consistent times was so crucial. (she missed quite a few 4th of July fireworks because the heck we had to pay for those several days after staying up so late was SOOO not worth it!). The other thing was a healthy diet. She loved sugar. Loved it. She was so much better if I was very conscious in healthy meals and snacks that filled her growing body.
Sending prayers your way! Some days nap time and bed time were my favorite times 🙂 You’re doing a great job. Never be too hard on yourself and always remember that there are new days every morning as the sun rises.

Oh sweet mama, thank you so much for your comment. I will go order that book right now on Amazon! I feel like King is the same way, we have a pretty good bedtime routine, we just need to stick with it better. He has been waking up a lot at night time screaming and screaming so I’m unsure of what is going on with that. The poor boy just needs some good sleep! Our nap transition isn’t going to well either going from two naps to one. Seriously thank you a million for your comment!
