“You’d never walk into a friend’s house and say, ‘wow this place is a mess, what did you even do today?’ But so often this is the way we speak to ourselves.
The thing is, the stuff we didn’t do is so readily apparent. We have visual reminders — baskets of unfolded laundry, a sink full of dishes, unmade beds — that pile of stuff that always accumulates in that one spot in the kitchen.
Wouldn’t it be so great if we had a running list of everything we DID do?
It’s not that any of us is looking for a trophy for the things we do, I know that we all feel privileged to have this role but it’s that very often we discredit ourselves for all we actually do as moms. 💗
Sometimes we all need a reminder that we’re doing a good job, we’re a good mom and we’re doing the best we can.” (words, 📸: @katie.plus.coffee ) on Instagram.
