5 Images That Accurately Describe Me As A Mom

I don't know how many times I have been scrolling through Instagram or Facebook, see a funny mom meme, and nod my head saying "yes yes yes" to whatever I am reading. It's a nice reminder that all mamas out there go through the same stuff, and sometimes, you just have to laugh! 

I've started saving little quotes here and there that ring so true, I could have written them myself. I thought I would take today to share 5 images that accurately describe my parenting journey thus far.

1. This. Yes, yes, yes. Parker is really pretty good with Preston and definitely doesn't throw him yet, but just lifting him in the air results in a slew of "watch his neck/watch out for that light fixture/he just ate and you're going to make him throw up" repeatedly until Parker has moved on to a seemingly safer activity.


2. It's amazing just how productive I can be with my time. If given a full hour just to myself, I almost don't know what to do by the end of it because I have already showered, eaten, folded laundry, and prepped dinner. Nothing teaches you time management like motherhood! I usually shower during Preston's first nap, and I take what feel like the world's fastest showers so I can use the rest of nap time to be productive!


3. Oh, this. It really is a minute to minute journey. There are moments where I feel like I have this motherhood thing on lockdown. My child is sleeping peacefully, my house is clean, and something delicious is baking in the oven. Then there are the days where my baby is overtired and crying, I desperately need a shower, and I forget to eat lunch. I prefer the first kind of days, but it's all part of the journey!


4. This is the one I most relate to on a daily basis. Sleeping makes for a happy, rested baby, so I find myself counting down to nap time and praying he stays asleep. And then, 30 minutes later, I miss him and can't wait for him to wake up. It's a vicious cycle.


5. This one is just food for the soul. I remind myself over and over that each day is a gift. In the good moments and the hard moments, it's already going by so quickly, and I just want to savor every second of this amazing journey. I want to have joy in the good times and grace in the hard times. It's not always easy, but it's always worth it, and there is nowhere in the world I would rather be than raising this sweet child.

Haha the first meme cracks me up! For us it's the other way around, Kyle is far more cautious than me.

Motherhood is such a complex emotional experience. There are so many emotions you feel all at once. Thanks for sharing these funny memes. I’m sure all moms can relate to them.
