My bloggy friend Brittany posted this video and I loved it and wanted to share it with you.
Becoming a mother has been the greatest blessing of my life. These two little girls have filled my life with so much love and joy. Becoming a mom has also challenged me more than I ever thought possible. It is the greatest responsibility I will ever have. Am I doing it right? Doing the right things? Saying the right things? Sometimes, I don't feel like I am. I doubt myself constantly. I have days (like today) where I feel like I'm going to go crazy if I don't get a break (followed up with a nice big feeling of guilt). I have to tell myself again and again that there is no such thing as a perfect mom and that is an unattainable goal. I am far from perfect, and that's o.k. Before I became a mom, I had all these visions of what motherhood would be like. Nothing can prepare you for it. That's why I think this video is so interesting. What would you tell yourself if you could go back to before you became a mom (knowing what you know now)?
