Motherhood is Beautiful Even When It’s Messy

I’m over at TODAY once again sharing some encouragement on how to reduce the stress in your life while raising your kids.  Here’s a little excerpt from my post…

Motherhood is messy. That’s reality.

You know it. You see it everyday.

Let’s start with the obvious, in-your-face messes. I’m speaking of the house, of course. The dishes and laundry are always accumulating. The toilets need scrubbing, the carpet needs vacuuming. Toys are scattered and food is spilled. Let’s just admit it, the house will never be as clean before those little people arrived in your life.  It’s a building full of never ending messes.

Then there’s the motherhood wardrobe and up keep messes. Bags from lack of sleep. Spit up on your back. Hair in ponytails. Makeup skipped. Manicures needed. Comfy clothes preferred. It’s hard to be stylish when you’re just in survival mode.

Mom guilt can be messy too. Afraid of saying the wrong thing. Doing the wrong thing. Over correcting. Not correcting. Not listening. Or just plain…screwing up. All that self-doubt and questioning every move can get really messy. Fast.
