Today I'm linking up over at Ado's, The Momalog for a very cool online baby shower for Alison over at Mama Wants This. She's due the first week of May with her second baby boy! So exciting. I wish you the best of luck Alison! Two boys bring loads of craziness, chaos and FUN. Bring on the superhero costumes!
Our task from Ado was to choose our favourite baby picture and quote about Motherhood. (Ado already stole my quote but I'm gonna use it anyway). Jackie Kennedy said it best. I remember reading this quote in one of her biography's. It was before I was even married with children but it was like a light bulb (bing!) went off in my head when I read it. It has stuck with me ever since.
"If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much."
I also read a wonderful sentence just the other day that made me feel so much better about what I'm doing as a Mother (frankly most days I don't know what the hell I AM doing as a Mother). I wish I knew who it was, to give them credit for this, but they just said it was something that an older mother had said to them at one time. Cheers to that older mother wherever she is!
"Motherhood is only hard when you're doing it right." Amen to that.
I couldn't decide on just one picture and didn't want to seem like I was favouriting one over the other - so I chose a favourite picture of each of my boys. Gotta be fair. And all's fair in love and Motherhood or something like that. (not really but anyway).
