Hey MWC Mommas,
It's been too long since I've done a post for the MWC Momma Interview Series! I missed you all. It's been quite a journey getting the #cancelsnapbackculture movement going and I am so thankful for it. The next momma is a part of the movement and a long time friend. Introducing, Teresa!
I am a registered medical assistant How old are your kids?
I have a six year old daughter
Are you a single momma, do you have a partner, a co-parent, do friends or family help, a mix of all of these, or other? Please explain. I have been married for 5 years.
Before you had kids, what ideas did you have about how you would be as a mother? Before I had kids I had so many plans and ideas running through my mind, like will I be the best mom, will I give my child everything, will I have the money I need to support him or her?
What do you think is the most difficult part about being a mom? The most difficult part for me is there is no ME TIME. I cant use the restroom in peace, I cannot shower without hearing MOM, time goes fast and I'm exhausted all the time, very hard to even think sometimes when all you think about is your kid and not your self. What is the best part about being a mom? The best part for me about being a mom is having that one little person I created that will love you unconditionally no matter what. What are some hacks and tips that you use to make daily mom life easier?
Alarm clocks, having bottles ready, and making sure i prep meals night before, and reading books at night to help sooth there mind and sleep. What are the most annoying daily tasks that you just wish you could make easier? How do you currently handle them? The most annoying daily task for me as a mom is Cooking. So what I do is cook for 2 days at a time to give me more time on my hands with my daughter. What things do you wish you knew before becoming a mom? I wish I knew how sleep will no longer be the same, how an epidural can cause back pain after, how much time is needed and attention my child would need. Also, how your life changes completely for the better and how fast you grow up. How have the moms in your life shaped you and how you are as a mother? My mother raised me to be respectful, honest, and showed me lots of love. I am raising my child the same , but better . As a mom I always show my daughter lots of love and attention because I want to raise her with manners and respect. If there is a mom out there reading this that is struggling, what would you like to tell her? Dear Mom Please be patient, take your time in everything you do. Always make time for yourself. And last but not least take a deep breath and you will get through it. You're not alone.
Together we can become @momswhochilll
