A mom’s job is not to plan, shop, and cook.

A mom’s job is to nourish with love.

A mom’s job is not changing diapers, bathing, fixing wounds, and scheduling appointments. 

A mom’s job is to care, soothe, hold, comfort, keep healthy and safe with love.

A mom’s job is not to be perfect, to look perfect, or to be superhuman.

A mom’s job is so much more.

RELATED: I Hope I Loved You Enough Today

A mom’s job is to laugh, play, tickle, giggle with love.

A mom’s job is to be present in the moment, validate feelings, and teach life lessons with love.

A mom’s job is to demonstrate how to love, how to accept love, and just be the love that completely surrounds your kids at all times, all stages, and all ages.

Simple as that.

All the rest of the things are distractions from the most important mom job, which is to love unconditionally. 

Remember this when you are awake all night, exhausted in the afternoon, and drinking cold coffee. Remember this when you have constant company in the bathroom, go days without showering, and feel like you are doing everything wrong.

When you’re lying in bed at night, thinking about all that you didn’t get done or that you will have to do tomorrow, remember a mom’s job is of the heart.

It cannot be measured as checkmarks on a to-do list. It can only be felt. It often gets overlooked, but it is the most important job in the world. It’s all love.

A mom’s job is so much more. Remember this! You only have one job . . . and that is love.

Someday I’ll Be Me Again, But For Now I’m OK With Being Mostly Mommy

Someday I’ll be all me again. Someday I’ll start to read grown up books that interest and challenge me instead of books about finding little monsters and counting apples. Someday I’ll dye my hair regularly and take care of my nails. Someday I’ll choose my clothing as more of a fashion statement instead of knotting my shirt over a stain and wearing a skirt because all my pants are at the bottom of the hamper. Someday I’ll quit using so much dry shampoo because I’ll have time to shower every night. Someday I’ll spend hours in my craft room filling...

My World Really Does Revolve Around My Kids

My World Really Does Revolve Around My Kids www.herviewfromhome.com

We talk a lot about having entitled children. It’s a hot topic in our society, and it’s something most parents work hard to avoid. We are told to help our children be independent, show them they can’t just get anything they want whenever they want, teach them good boundaries and respect towards all people, and make sure they know the world doesn’t revolve around them.

I picked up a fitted sheet off the floor. It was clean, but I’d been putting off folding it for a couple of days because . . . well, just because. I had just gotten back from the grocery store and was trying to decide whether I should fold the rest of the laundry or work on the puzzle on the card table.  As I laid out, folded, then ultimately wadded the fitted sheet, I thought about the fact that in two years, all three of my kids would be in elementary school. Just two years.  I’d always assumed I’d...
