Sunshine Sunday - motherhood my style

I've been a mother now for almost five years.  It has stretched me in a billion different ways.  I think it takes a while to figure the whole motherhood thing out, and while I'm definitely still learning and have a long way to go I feel like in the last year I've kind of gotten a better grasp on it.

You see, there are a lot of different ways to do one thing.  Did you know there are even multiple ways to eat a banana?

At first you kind of think there are these set rules of how to do things properly.  And I happen to be a rule-following person.

But then you realize there's room for YOUR personality in it - your style.  They were given to you for a reason.

I can be me AND mom.  I can trust my instincts.  I can try new things.  I can be more creative about how I teach my boys.

AND I can bring all my passions and interests into the job.  I am a dance instructor.  I am a chef.  I am an artist.  I am a nurse.  I get to be everything I ever dreamed of being.  How great is that?

But the coolest part by far, is that I get to be everything to them.

It's a pretty great job.

And while there are definitely rough days, I think I like this job a little more everyday.

Thanks for reading.
