What I Have Learned Since Becoming a Mom

So I have been doing this Mama thing for just about 2 years now and I have learned a lot. I mean A LOT! I thought I would share some of those things today. I am sure over the years I will learn a lot more but for now her are some of the things I have learned…

Motherhood is hard.

I knew I always wanted to be a mom and I always thought it would be easy. Well not easy but not hard. Let me tell you it is hard. There are days when I wanna rip my hair our. There are days when I think to myself REALLY?!?! Is this really what motherhood is? Then there are the days that I am like THIS this is what motherhood is all about. It’s about the little things. It’s about the love you share and the bond you have with your little spawn. #babybigtruck is for the most part a very easy-going kid and I count my blessings because she is healthy and happily adjusted. I mean it could be way harder.

A plan is your best friend.

Before having #babybigtruck I was used to doing what I wanted when I wanted no questions asked. Now I have to plan things in when I can and remember that sometimes plans need to change last-minute and that is okay! If I want to work out I have to find time to do it. If I wanna have a girls day with my BFF I have to plan it. There is no more living life by the seat of my pants.

Nothing is mine anymore.

Since having a little person everything that was once mine is not longer mine. Food on my plate? Free game to #babybigtruck. My drink at the table? #babybigtruck has claimed that as well. Shoes? They may be 10 sizes to big but yeah they are not mine anymore either.

Time management is a must!

I have to take the little bit of time I get and use it to the max! That means at night as we are cleaning up from dinner I am packing up leftovers for lunch the next day. When I give #babybigtruck a bath sometimes I will brush my teeth while she plays. I have also come to the point that I try to do a lot of household paperwork and bill paying at work.

You will go broke if you are not careful.

Stuff don’t matter friends. Remember that. To be honest I have to remember that myself. Mr. Big Truck will be the first to rat me out but I LOVE to buy things for #babybigtruck. I have also learned rather fast that buying her all the things is not cheap so therefore I have chilled out big time! Now I really try to ask myself “Dose she REALLY NEED this?” before I buy her anything.

Motherhood is amazing!

Nothing I have ever done is as rewarding or fun although exhausting and hard as motherhood is. I would not give it up for the world. I will forever be grateful for God choosing Mr. Big Truck and I to be her parents and trusting us to raise her up in this world.

    So many good lessons learned! It’s funny to me how kids really do kind of take over other people’s things without thinking anything of it. We don’t have kids yet, but we have lots of nieces and nephews who have taught us this lesson. 😉

      Oh my gosh do they ever! Sounds like y’all y’all will be ready to let your own kids take over your things when the time comes! LOL!
