Motherhood - Be Present Not Perfect

Over the years, I've learned that while there are some things you can control and be "perfect", most you cannot. The biggest of those things is Motherhood.

Motherhood is crazy and messy and far from just being perfect. In a lot of ways, I think it's overly hyped.

However, I would love to say it is one of the best things happened to me and the best I have ever done.

It's just not always the way it appears...especially on social media. A lot of us post pictures of our adorable smiling children, in the park, playing in the pool etc with the caption "Fun time!" But in reality, that was about few seconds of our day. The rest involves our child screaming through the supermarket, getting chips, dal rice etc on the carpet at home, refusing to nap, refusing to eat their meal and these moments can just go on. Those moments of our day probably won't be uploaded to social media.Completely understand why.

The problem is that it can create an extremely horrible feeling of not being able to be that "perfect mom" where everything is in controls and running smoothly.

Striving to be "Super-Mom" is a fall we need to avoid. But while avoiding it, we also don't want to sit back, let the kids run wild, and scream from the roof top.... "It's okay! I'm not perfect!" it's not about caring what other mom’s think we are. When in reality, what's most important is the kind of mom our kids think we are.

Maybe today the heap of clothes to be kept back in place can wait and my kitchen can be a mess so that I can cuddle my daughter’s when they are back from school. I strive to be a mom who can let the house go for the day though it's tough, and get on the floor to play a bit more.I am trying to be the kind of mom who doesn't care about those bed creases,unwashed laundry,messy rooms but care about the 5 minutes my kids might need me to say "I'm here. I'm watching."

I am trying my best and would want you Mom’s as well to try.

Just an advice- Don't worry about trying to have it all together. Be present. Be playful Be Fun.That's the mom our kids will think is "Perfect".
