This is My Motherhood

Thank you to Thread Tank for sponsoring today's post!

I'm working together with a fun tee shirt company, Thread Tank! Something I love about this company is their moto. They strive to create stories you can wear. Comfy tees are my jam as a mom and being able to find a place that makes relatable, stylish tees for all sorts of lifestyles and interests! "Every single one of us has something we want to wear on our chest." The tees I chose were exactly what I wanted to wear ;) My cute tees say "Chaos Coordinator" and "Raising Little People" and I'll tell you why! 

Being a mom is so much of who I am now and I am proud of that. Yes, I have different interests and hobbies but when it comes down to it, having little people to raise is my greatest joy! Life changes you when you have children. For me, I loved Nova with everything I had the minute she was placed into my arms but I will tell you right now that the connection didn't click for several weeks. I struggled with that reality. I thought it was all supposed to be over-the-top natural because I was now a mom. Well, I figured out how wrong I was very quickly. However, over time, my little girl has me wrapped around her little finger!

That isn't all to say that my days are perfect. I have days where I cry in the bathtub because I am emotionally drained. There are times when I yell at my child only to feel completely and totally awful about it minutes later. There are days where I think Nova must be the only toddler who throws a fit at our playdate group. But, there are more amazing and wonderful days in between each one of those. We have days when all we do is snuggle and laugh. Days when Nova eats all the food I made her! We have some really beautiful days together.

That is my motherhood. Every motherhood is different. The one thing we all have in common is we all have a story. Every story is a little different but beautiful and relatable. That's something I have come to really love about surrounding myself with other mothers. I learn so much from them and their stories. I read a quote recently that said, "Motherhood is a million little moments that God weaves together with grace, redemption, laughter, tears, and most of all, love." [Lysa TerKeurst]

There really is no comparison besides the fact that we are all doing our best. Trying our best to do what is right for our families. Which is exactly why I love writing on my blog and sharing my motherhood. In hopes that I can uplift, inspire and encourage other mothers. Whether that be through the days that I feel like I'm winning or the days that I am really struggling. Motherhood isn't intended to be easy. It's full of messy snack times, poopy diapers, laughter and tears, Sesame Street and finding the happy medium between surviving and thriving. We're all just a bunch of professional chaos coordinators ;)
