“I Wanna See You Be Brave”


As mamas, I don’t think we give ourselves nearly enough credit.

Today I went grocery shopping, while on crutches, with 2 kids (my daughter is quite the photographer isn’t she). For a moment I thought I was Wonder Woman and put the baby in a regular cart and proceeded to hop on one foot while pushing. Yeah, that ridiculousness lasted all of 10 paces. These little motorized carts though turned out to be a great plan B, although he almost crashed us a few times in produce as he fought me for the steering square.

Today, this was my BRAVE

I tell this little story not looking for a pat on the back, I already gave myself one ;-), I tell it to remind mamas to acknowledge ourselves. It’s easy to overlook all the amazing things we do in any given day, because most of the time each task is just a drop in the bucket of our awesomeness. So, whether it’s heading off to work on 4 hours sleep, cleaning up the aftermath of the stomach bug, or simply getting all your kids out the door on time don’t forget to give yourself the kudos you deserve!
