Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs that you will ever have. The little bundle of joy that you once carried in your belly, the one you cuddled with, gazed at, watched sleep, loved from the moment they were conceived can be a bit unlovable at times (including the time your husband needs to take fertility test for men). Do you agree? Well, there is no doubt that mothering is hard, but here are four ways that you can be a better mother to those you love the most.
1. Take care of yourself. When you are at your best, you will be able to be the best mom possible. Get enough sleep, eat healthy, shower, sing, do whatever it takes to make you happy.
2. Laugh. Everyone loves laughing and when you find ways to laugh at yourself, with your child, and just laugh in general, you will be a happier person.
3. You can’t do it all. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t. Stop beating yourself up over things you can’t control.
4. Love. All your child wants is unconditional love. Find ways each and every day to show your child how much they mean to you, how much you love them.
By adding some laughter, love, and honesty to your life, you can be a better mother.
