Motherhood Is Messy…But It’s Also So Beautiful

Motherhood is trying to convince your child that they don’t need every toy in the store, and the mannequins are not for touching.

Motherhood is playing the same Disney song for the 10,000th time and resisting the urge to cover your ears.

Motherhood is yearning to use the bathroom without an audience.

Motherhood is your child getting into your makeup and dropping eyeshadow all over the bathroom floor.

Motherhood is tears, tantrums, pandemonium, and lots of cleaning.

Motherhood Is Messy.

Motherhood is eye rolling, door slamming, and muttering under their breaths.

Motherhood is testing your patience and possibly your sanity.

Motherhood is exhaustion, upheaval, and unpredictability.

Filled with laughter, tenderness, and love.

Motherhood is trying to embrace the chaos and cherishing the little things that bring joy.
