Motherhood. That’s a scary word.
With it comes pregnancy, childbirth, diapers and spit up…and in no time flat it turns into parenting teens with drivers licenses and lives of their own. It’s a crazy, insane, lifelong path that has so many bumps that one wonders just how Mom does it.
But motherhood isn’t always scary. It’s isn’t always frustrating. It has little moments between the chaos that are so utterly beautiful that it makes all the stretch marks and grey hair worth it. Little moments that you keep in your heart forever…like their first bath, first steps, first words, first friend. The first time they tell say “I love you mommy“, in that adorable toddler chatter.
No, being a mom isn’t easy, but it is the best thing ever. And along our path of motherhood, there are a few things that we come to depend on. In my home, it’s milk in the fridge, coffee in the cup (a lot of coffee) and Johnson’s Bedtime Bath. Johnson’s has been in steady supply in my home since before the birth of my first born. A baby shower with 40+ people kept me well stocked for the first year. I’ve come to depend on the soft lavender scent at bath time… it’s a night time ritual for my boys. It calms them, helps all of us relax…knowing that sleep will soon follow.
For Mother’s Day, I’ve partnered with Johnson’s Baby to bring you a special contest. One very deserving A Busy Mommy reader will win a Mother’s Day Gift.
