How Did You Start to Become a Great Mom?
I talk a lot about your dreams and desires to raise your little ones to be successful in life. They’re the most beautiful little people to be born, to anyone, ever, in the history of the world. Those little sweethearts make you want to be a great mom, even if you didn’t plan for your little dear.
You gave birth to them, right? You love them with all of your heart.
I’ve learned that setting aside your dreams and desires for a time, to give your best to your little one, is totally worth it. But…I’m talking to you as an experienced mother who’s figured some stuff out.

Let me be honest with you. I didn’t exactly have a clear plan about giving my life and my time for a child when I was 20 years old, in college and having an unplanned pregnancy. Obviously, my ‘plan’ took a dramatic turn when a little dear was about to arrive.
Many of us come into the mothering job in an unexpected way. Many of us had dreams, goals, and plans to do something with our life and then maybe have some kids later, but then, along came baby.
For me, the start of the baby thing did not look like this –
a. studying magazines and searching The Knot, picking out wedding things, getting married in a fairy tale setting
b. career, where I’d be massively successful
c. take months to study magazines, search The Nest and decorate a lovely home
d. study magazines, search The Bump and have the joy of starting to plan for a baby.
e. have it all end up like a fairy tale with lots of money and a beautiful baby and total freedom to be an amazing mom.
For me, I was thrown into the firestorm of baby, marriage, no money and trying to figure it out. How many are tracking with me on this scenario?
What was it like for you? Smooth, easy, no worries? Or was it as crazy wild ride where you had to jump into gear and ‘figure it out’?
Most of all is the fact that no matter what your plan was to become a mom, be proud of yourself that you are a great Mom and you’re doing your best!
