Holly & Heather’s Helpful Hint: Ode to Motherhood
This Sunday is Mother’s Day and we would like to wish our mom a very happy day! Being mothers ourselves, we can truly appreciate how hard it is to be a mom. Not just a mom but a conscientious parent; loving but firm, always there but not hovering, guiding but not dictating. It is a hard balance, to find that mix of just right when it comes to mothering, especially as our kids are all teenagers now and looking for independence but still really needing us. And still needing our advice and help in life.
When our kids were little we spent our days reading, playing with them on the playground and making pudding. We didn’t go out without them on the weekends; sitters were hard to come by so the occasional “date night” with our husbands was rare but welcomed. As they got older our days were full of homework help and navigating good friendships for them. We spent many a day driving to and from all different kinds of lessons; from dance to piano, karate and baseball. Now that they are teens we are still here, even if they are doing their own thing. They still need a hot meal and to know you are present.
Mothering never ends, it seems we are destined to always worry about our children, and always love, unconditionally. Happy Mother’s Day to all of our mom readers. We hope you have a great day, hopefully celebrating with your kids! See you Sunday Mom! xoxo
