This pretty green floral dress was just perfect for an early dinner here at the beach yesterday for Mother’s Day. The dress is super light weight and perfect as the temps rise. A fabulous pair of wedge sandals could easily elevate this green floral dress to a dressier look!
I hope all your beautiful moms had a great mother’s day! Thinking back over my last year and a half as a mom it is easy to think back at all the high points. The first steps, the first time G said momma, eating solid foods, sleeping thru the night and cutting all his cute little teeth. I love thinking back on those memories. In our world of perfect photos and beautiful Instagrams, it is easy to think that motherhood is full of sparkling white kitchen, with gorgeous dressed kids and homes that are imaculate. I’m laughing as I type this because motherhood is so far from that. A lot of days my house looks like a tornado went thru it and my floors are dirtier than a barn floor. 🙂
What are my hardest parts of motherhood? For starters, letting go of a picked up house was hard. Haha! I’m such a neat freak and that really is not possible when you have a child. Picking up at the end of the day has helped keep my house somewhat neat. Realizing that my free time is no longer free. Yep, I’m on “vacation” this week at the beach, but vacations look a little different now. I would not trade this type of vacation for anything, but it actually is easier for my to be home since my house is baby proof and there is no standing water for G to run and jump in! The food issue is another tough part. I am blessed that G normally eats pretty good. Coming up though with meals that he consistently will eat is the challenge. One day he loves something so I make a big dish of it only for him to not want any of it the next day. At least popcicles and grapes are always favorites for him!
What are your hard parts of motherhood? I think that it is good for us moms to be real and share that life is not always perfect. The good days definitely out weigh the bad ones. The beautiful moments are moments that I will never forget. The hard moments, I am confident, I will NOT remember 20 years from now. I want to hold on to these days, even the hard ones for as long as I can. They are the best days.
I hope you all have a great week. I will be soaking up the salty air and warm rays today! Thanks for stopping by.
