I know it’s tough when you’re surrounded by messes, constantly hounded for snacks, behind on laundry, irritable, exhausted, losing sight of what’s important… You may have lost sight of why you became a mom in the first place, so let me help you remember.
You did not become a mom to be cleaning up all day. You did not become a mom so that you could get so frustrated that you yell at your kids every day. You did not become a mom so that you could grow to resent your once beloved husband.
You became a mom for the same reasons I did. So you could raise up a strong, loving generation of humans. You became a mom so you could nurture, comfort, and teach those sweet souls that depend on you. You became a mom because you loved your husband so much that you wanted more tiny versions of him.
Motherhood isn’t meant to be heavy and overwhelming. It’s meant to be this beautiful relationship between you and the human beings you created. You were chosen out of any woman to ever exist across all of space and time to be the mother to your children. No one else is qualified for this position. You can do this. You were meant for this.
First things first, we have to separate motherhood from housekeeping or homemaking.
Motherhood is a relationship, not a job, not a chore. Motherhood is not cooking and cleaning and laundry and family organization. Motherhood is simply the relationship between you and your children. It’s showing up for them even when you don’t feel like it, it’s providing comfort and safety and life lessons as they need it. Motherhood is teaching your children how to be human beings – how to practice hygiene, how to manage their emotions, how to treat others kindly, and set boundaries to treat themselves kindly.
Motherhood is not about cooking gourmet dinners, or keeping clean baseboards, or buying your kids new toys that they can leave out all around the house.
We’re going to take a good look at your views on your motherhood, yourself, and your habits.
This isn’t a course on how to keep your home clean, but rather how to know if things are actually helping you or just wasting your time and to move forward with confidence and self-compassion as you make the shifts needed to make life easier and lighter.
A Bit About Me
Hi, I’m Brittni, a mom who’s determined to share my light, wisdom, and joyfulness with every mom. My desire is that every woman knows she is worthy of ease and joy and finds the encouragement and motivation to pursue her best life possible.
I live in rural Oregon with my husband and 3 sons. I never dreamed of being a boy-mom, but now I can’t imagine life not surrounded by toy dinosaurs, race cars, and fart noises.
