Anyway, my talk was about being a wife, mother and still yourself. This is something that I really believe in, even more now that I gave a talk on it. I think that it is so easy to loose yourself while raising your kids. It is important that we understand that we are important regardless of our children. I also talked about how your ability to help your children is not so great when you don't take care of yourself. Mom needs a break every once in a while!
I saw on the news the other day that a mom went on vacation for a week when her baby was only 10 weeks old. I personally don't think that is a big deal but I was shocked that people were being so mean to this mom. People were really bashing her, saying that she isn't a good mom and things like that. Being a mom is soooo hard and I really don't think we need to judge each other.
I am happy that I get to be a mom. It is a great blessing. Although there are days that I wish I could just not be a mom for a day or two and then jump back into it after my break. I guess that is one hard part of motherhood. Once a mom, you are always a mom. Even when on vacation or on a date Bob and I just talk about the kids to each other.
Ok, enough rambling from me. Any thoughts on the subject?
