  1. Thank you for sharing a picture of my sweet girl and I.. 🙂

    Also, thank you for saying “you know you’re a MOM when…” I say this because one of my biggest frustrations that I really should just let go… is… when stay-at-home mommies say “you know you’re a stay-at-home mom when”… and then they tag only their stay-at-home mom friends. I want so badly to say, “hey, um, guess what.. I TOO experience the SAME feelings, and I work. yep.” I am thankful to say I have experienced both sides – being a stay-at-home mommy & being a teacher-mommy, and I have equally experienced all mommy feelings through both paths so far. so THANK YOU, molly, for not just identifying yourself as a stay-at-home momma, but simply as a MOM. a transparent, approachable, honest mommy.. who we all can relate to.

    lastly, thanks for letting me post my feelings on your blog. Now I don’t need my own… 😉

  2. I really needed to read this today. I have been trying to reconnect with some of my old friends who are not moms. And sometimes find myself at a loss of words when they ask me if I like being a mom. DUH! I have the most amazing and honorable job in the entire world and I wouldn’t trade it for any other life. It’s really important for moms to remember that all of the things that make us look like messy moms mean our children are HAPPY. GREAT POST!

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed this post and related to it Michelle. Being a mom can be very exhausting and it’s okay to have rough days, we have HARD JOBS! On days like that it’s important to remind ourselves that children are a BLESSING and they bring so much JOY! Thousands of women around the world pray to become mommys everyday. You are blessed.
