5 Things That I’ve Accepted Since Having Kids

5 Things I've Learned Since Becoming a Mother

Since becoming a mom, I’ve realized that pretty much nothing is in my control any more. I’m a complete control freak though, so most of the time I pretend that I have a say in my every day life.

That being said, these are 5 things that I’ve completely given up trying to have ANY control over.

  1. No matter how often I sweep or vacuum, there will always be Cheerios or crumbs on my floor.
  2. No matter how often I tidy, there will always been toys everywhere.
  3. No matter how often I do laundry or how long I wait before putting on my “nice” clothes, I will always have mysterious debris and food on said clothing.
  4. Despite my best efforts to get everyone on a schedule and getting myself to bed at a decent time, I will never NOT be tired.
  5. I will have the theme song of The Wiggles in my head forever and always.

It’s taken me a long time to get to this point you guys but I think after months of fighting, I’m ready to give up the ghost. One day I’ll have nice things again. One day.

I’m a Momma to two boys under 3. I’ve recently started a journey of becoming a mentor for other moms who want to talk about the stuff they are worried about saying outloud, setting goals for themselves and reconnecting with their awesome selves.
