31 days of messy motherhood {day 31}

Day-31

The moments where your house is a disaster and there is pee on the floor from who knows when. When it all seems to be falling apart. You haven't washed your hair in a week, and you smell strongly of sour milk. It's the moment when your 2 year old looks you in the eye and says "I love you so much, Mommy". THAT makes it worth it. Every tiny moment is worth it. The good and the bad. The hard and the precious. IT'S WORTH EVERY MOMENT. ---- Follow along with my "31 Days of Messy … [Read more...]

Let Him be your refuge and strength! ---- Follow along with my "31 Days of Messy Motherhood"! I will post bits of encouragement for moms … [Read more...]

I can't tell you how many days I've waited to drink my coffee until after nap time. My evening time with my hubby is SO important to me, even if we are just vegging out in front of the tv...it's OUR time. So you better believe I will drown the exhaustion of the day in a cup of coffee at dinner time just to make it to midnight. It's worth every sip. ---- Follow along with my "31 Days of Messy Motherhood"! I will post bits of encouragement for moms everyday throughout the month of … [Read more...]

Absolutely one of my favorite verses. …whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable –if anything is excellent or praiseworthy– think about such things.

Day-26

Walking into motherhood can be a terrifying thing. Am I good enough? Am I SMART enough to raise this tiny person? Do I have what it takes?? I worry if I will have the wisdom to give them what they need. Can I do it? The answer is yes. It's always yes. “She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.” Proverbs 31:26 “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6 “Discipline your children, and they will … [Read more...]

Every stage is difficult for it's own reasons. Don't try to deny the fact that it's hard. This goes right back to the Mommy measuring stick we talked about, there isn't one. When you think that your life seems so much harder than someone else's, trust me. Their kid isn't perfect. Their life isn't perfect. We all have those REALLY hard days. I've had several of them lately. My 2 year old has been rough and my 1 year old cries a LOT. That's just life. It's the SEASON I am in, and I'm sure there … [Read more...]
