Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Motherhood is not the laundry.
It’s the serving.


It’s not the tantrums.
It’s the teaching.

It’s not the crumbs.
It’s the nourishing.

It’s not the scrubbing.
It’s the protecting.

It’s not the doing without.
It’s the sacrificing.

It’s not the sleepless nights.
It’s the savoring.

It’s not the messing up.
It’s the apologizing.

It’s not the figuring it out.
It’s the trusting.

It’s not the saying “goodbye.”
It’s the releasing.

Mamas, let’s never underestimate the value of our time or the impact we are making.


There’s always more to it than what meets the eye.

As we realize what motherhood is.
