Motherhood has to be one of the most fulfilling things in the world to me. Being able to nurture my twins and bring them up to be wonderful people just brings me joy and satisfaction. I love my children and I love growing with them.
However, I do understand that raising children can sometimes be frustrating and stressful. There are things you can’t control no matter how hard we try. There are going to be bad days but the cons of motherhood should never outweigh the pros.
One of the most important things to remember in order to keep the joy of motherhood alive is to have fun. While it entails a lot of responsibility, rearing children also means reveling in simple things like blowing bubbles or reading stories to our youngsters. Find delight in mundane activities that you can share with kids because it is the little things that create the best memories.
Also, always keep in mind that kids grow up so fast. Time flies and the demands that come with taking care of a toddler or the nuisance of potty training will pass faster than you think it will. At best, we only have short of two decades to keep our kids close so remember to relish every moment whether good or bad. Always bear in mind that an extra dose of patience and good humor will go a long way.
Finally, know that motherhood is a great way to relive our own childhood. If you grew up in a loving and nurturing home, you can give the same experience to our kids so that they too can grow up with memories that they can cherish forever. On the other hand, if you didn’t have such an appealing time when you were growing up, you can use that as an opportunity to provide a better experience for your own children and from there, inner healing will ensue.
Motherhood is a joyous experience and will never stop even if the kids have started carving their own path. Just remember that we can’t take the good without taking along the bad.
Lots of Love,
