It has taken me a little over 13 years and 6 kids to figure out that I don’t have all of the answers for the many obstacles motherhood has thrown at me. To clarify, I don’t believe anyone does. I was however, without any answers, prior experience or training, going to be the best mom ever. Ironically, I have failed more times than I have succeeded.

Many of you reading this blog may identify yourself as a Millennial parent. And with that title comes quite the burden, as our generation is widely criticized as being self-absorbed, which, as parents, is an unfortunate criticism. I choose to flip this myth! Why can’t we simply enjoy our self care or believe in taking breaks to refresh ourselves? Having time alone to decompress helps adults to be better parents and create stress free, loving environments in which to raise children.

As moms the responsibility of what everyone is going to eat falls on us most of the time. That can become a burden really quickly when you work all day, have an hour or less to prepare a well-rounded meal and don’t know what to make…again.

My son, the names change (often) but the way you are viewed (in this society) will not. Every day that you get dressed, you unknowingly put on an invisible shirt that tells others what they should think of you. You are not like any of the things written on your invisible shirt, but you will be portrayed this way to justify your ill-treatment.

Who would’ve thought that I would use cloth diapers? ​Not with Baby #4. Well, ​Yah I did it​.​ You’re probably wondering why the change. Especially because he was over the age of 1 year old when I started and would soon to be potty trained in a year or so. Well, I did it because I found that we were spending WAY ​TOO MUCH​ on traditional diapers.

The feeling of bringing a child into the world is an indescribable feeling, and cannot be compared to anything else in life. It’s almost unreal, supernatural, simply magical! To feel excruciating pain one minute and pure joy and a burst of love the next minute when you physically see your baby on the other side of your womb!

Realizing this, I said this year as my daughter turns 10, I wanted to start writing letters to her 2-4 times a year that when she is older she can reflect back and see our relationship.  She could see how we solved problems, how we related to each other and most of all how much I love and adore her.
