Memoirs of a Mommy
I've had every good intention of jotting down some of the memorable experiences I've had since becoming a mommy. The good...the bad... and sometimes the downright oo-glay. These stories are not tailored nor are they censored to make it less embarrassing for me. I make no claim of having it all figured out. No pregnancy is the same and no baby is the same. So the experiences and stories I share may never happen to you (sometimes that might be a good thing). I simply want you to get a good laugh at my expense and possibly learn from some of my mistakes.
There's a good chance that some of my experiences will become your own. Or maybe you've already had similar experiences. If that's the case, please feel free to comment. I would love to hear others' stories. On the days when you've clocked a total of 4 hours of sleep, you still haven't showered (and it's 3:00 p.m.), and your wardrobe is not complete until it's been spit up on...just remember that you're not alone.
Also, remember that motherhood is a high calling from the Father. It's no small task. I know that statement should go without saying but the Enemy is quick to make us feel like our contributions to our family, our community, and to the world are not enough. On the contrary..."As a mother, you are helping to shape the souls of your children for Chirst and ultimately influence the world. Your children are your gift to the future" (Jani Ortlund).
