Monday in a minute - Mother's Day Edition

Happy (belated) Mother's Day!

Third-trimester pregnancy exhausted is setting in so I am using that as an excuse to bring back Monday in a minute. Basically, a super quick post for the sake of posting.

Mother's day was spent with my sweet baby girl, my handsome husband and my baby belly. It was quiet and busy. The house didn't get cleaned but there were lots of laughs and yummy food. The laundry didn't get folded but there was snuggles and story time. I went to bed tired and happy.

I always imagine myself being a mom but I never really knew what that would mean. I didn't realize the impact such a tiny person could have on my entire world.

Similar to last year's post, I'm going to give myself a gift. The gift of kindness. I'm going to endeavor to be easier on myself as a mom this week. I am going to pat myself on the back for those glowing parenting moments and forgive myself for those moments where I maybe could have done a little (or a lot) better. I challenge you to try and give yourself that same gift this week. We deserve it.

Happy Monday!


  1. We all need to be kinder to ourselves. Great reminder! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. A good chuckle at the craptacular moments are always wonderful!

  3. I too need to be kinder and not so hard on myself... I am definitely not perfect, but as my daughter told me tonight at bed time, I am her BFF and that is all that matters to me :) Glad you had a great Mother's Day!



Love hearing from you!
