I Am A Mother Before Anything

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 288 People

    If there is any accomplishment

    that I would like to be known for in my life is that I have done a good job as a mother. My children's interests and needs come first before anything else. I love my children and I will do anything to make their lives better even if it means making sacrifices.

    Until You <3 {this Is Precious All Moms Should Read}

    I never pulled over to stare at horses, I was never willing to give someone else my last bite, I never planned on handling someone else's boogers, I never listened to a song 50 times in a row, I never found rocks on my dryer, I never had to power to heal a wound with my kiss...

    just five minutes out of their day to complete this survey. There are only 10 questions. It is about feminism, strong and brave women, heroines and role models. It is for an important assignment so it would be so much help if you could do this for me. Thank you so much! http...

    I found this wonderful link

    for all mothers everywhere, and the children too! I haven't yet but I think I will print it out, frame it, and hang it above my desk to remind me that everything I do, or DON'T do, MATTERS to my children.

    I love my 3 year old daughter more

    than words can describe. She is my top priority and I live my life for her. I've learned that being a great mother means taking care of yourself so you can be there for your child. I try my best to get rest and divide responsibilities with my husband. Even though I want to be...

    Sometimes I Get So Busy, That I Forget The Little Things. And Then I Hear A Voice Saying "Watch Me Mama"!

    See me when my eyes light with pride, when I give you a gift I have made myself. See me when I look at you as you're reading me a book. See me try to understand when you take the time to explain things to me. See me melt when you use a funny voice to coax a grin out of me when I...

    My Kids=My World

    I have been fortunate enough to stay home with and for my children as they are growing up.... I am always here for them, in good times and bad, and am so very proud of the kind, caring individuals they are becoming.
