10 things motherhood has taught me

Here's looking at you, more day before fabulous Friday! Today, right before Mother's Day, I'm linking up with Erin to talk about 10 things motherhood has taught me....

Get ready for a whole lot of light hearted random:

1-  I had a lot of free time before kids.What did I do with it all?!

2- Being kind is more important than being right. Although if they're getting the truth, I want them to get it from me and not some random mean girl at school. 

3- I've gathered lots of different bodily fluids in my hands--- no further explanation necessary

4- That I'm truly blessed to be doing this with a very involved, very patient, very good father.

5- They listen to everything! Your cadence, your gossip, your complaints... important to zip it sometimes or wait until they're not around.

6- Brighter is better. At least with their selection of your nail colour for your manicure... the words "too light" have been excitedly exclaimed at the salon 

7- Trust your gut, mamas! When you need to say no, just do it... as guilty as you may feel.

8- But.... step out of your comfort zone.... for your kids' needs as well as your own. You'll both survive! 

9- Their fashion sense is not yours... they will choose party dresses, stripes, sequins and leg warmers sometimes all together... and that's okay... for home lol. I've learnt to deal but if it's a hard no, then I say something. 

10- Laugh often and be silly! You'll be a better mama for it. And videos are better than pics to remember those moments!

What are your favourite mommy tips?


  1. So true that they listen to everything. Trusting yourself is my number 1! And the last one...sometimes I feel like I'm too silly! But I love it.

  2. Aww....I love these! It's so funny we are all moms and yet all have come up with so many different things we are all able to relate to. The catching fluids...yes...ick!

  3. What a great list!! I am with you! I need to do more videos and also write down the cute things they say.

  4. I love this SO much that I am gonna do it as well. Such beautiful pictures of you & your lil ladies. :)

  5. You are right they do listen to everything we say and I laughed at what did we do with all that free time? It's true and I use to really sleep in like past 7 am on the weekends :)! Thanks for linking up! Erin @

  6. Awww, you gals are such cutie pies. Love the nod to your husband for being such a participatory daddy. Your girls are very blessed.

    High five on trust your gut. I think that has been on every list I have read so far. And so right!

    Have a picture perfect Mother's Day, beautiful!

  7. Great tips and advice! Kids are like sponges and you really have to protect their ears from certain adult conversations. So happy you have a very involved and loving husband to help you enjoy this journey of parenthood! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
