What's one thing you've learned from your mom that you do?

There was this one time as a kid when I got lectured and my brother did not get the same discipline even though we made the same huge mess. Before I could ask my mom why I was the only one getting disciplined, she told me, “Your brother will also be in trouble for this. He is not you. He learns differently so I have to teach him differently. Don’t think I am singling you out.” That really stuck with me. I took what I learned from that side comment of hers into many of my relationships growing up. Her words allowed me to give more grace and have more patience for others.

Now as a mom, I 100% see what my mom went through as my two boys could not be any more opposite. It’s really interesting to see them become individuals and have their own interests, taste buds, and other things like that but very WILD to see how they take in information differently. So as I am raising and teaching my sons, my mom’s words from when I was 10 years old are always with me.

In what ways has motherhood challenged you?

Motherhood is constantly changing. I find that routines aren’t routines for long when your kids are growing and interests evolve. As an entrepreneur who is in a business where you are constantly kept on your toes, you’d think the constant changes with being a mom would be something I can simply handle. But I think because home was where I found some tranquility and didn’t have to manage time there, it was an overwhelming adjustment. Learning how to time manage personal life and work while conquering sudden changes without burning out is rough. Just saying that sounds daunting. Your mind and body can only handle so much. I am learning to do less, rethinking what is important, and simply doing what makes sense to me. Yes, this is hard for someone like me with a mind that is constantly on the go and a body that is just starting to learn to mono-task but allowing myself to slow down a bit lets me enjoy this beautiful, dynamic relationship with my children. I am still learning to slow down and I recognize I am fortunate that I can.

What's the best advice for moms during the stage your kids have grown out of?

Every child is so unique and it’s hard to know what advice to give. I think every parent will find what works for them and their child. This doesn’t quite have to do with a child’s stage but one piece of advice that has helped shape my thinking as a mom. We tend to have mom guilt and think we aren’t doing enough. We have a list of things we need to do at home and for their school and can’t seem to accomplish it all. I learned that motherhood is not a list of tasks— it’s not the dishes you get done, the birthdays you plan, the laundry you clean, how tidy the children’s rooms are, etc. Rather it is the relationship you have with the child. It seems obvious but we get so wrapped up with our responsibilities that we confuse that and use that to rate how good of a parent we are. I’m not saying to neglect your dishes, but seeing dirty dishes in a mom’s sink does not make them a failure as a mom. Just have a relationship with your kid and do your best to nurture that relationship as you would with a dear friend, a close sibling, or a beloved partner. Once that clicked for me, I truly looked at that list of tasks in a new light and gave my relationships with my children a new respect. It helped me prioritize time with my kids, how to spend it with them, and have more meaningful conversations.

What's one thing you've learned from your mom that you do?

I am the oldest of four and my mom has shown us all unconditional love. She cares deeply about each of us and is our biggest supporter. Because of her, I have learned to tell my girls “I love you no matter what. You can tell me anything. Mama will always be here for you.”

In what ways has motherhood challenged you?

In all honesty, there is a challenge around every corner. And those challenges change each day and with every age your child is at. I have had to learn over the last ten years that not everything will be neat and pretty the way I like it and that things likely won’t go the way that I hope they will. I’ve had to let go of my expectations and go with the flow more. I am teaching them the same! Not being able to rest when I am tired is always difficult.

What's the best advice for moms during the stage your kids have grown out of?

Each age has its own challenges. Be patient with your kids and gentle with yourself. This too shall pass! Now anyone with pre-teens have advice for me? Ha!
