Happy Mother's Day! I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Mother's day! Being a mom is one of the most challenging and rewarding the job in the world. I'm so lucky to have a great relationship with my mom and she is truly my best friend and someone I go to when I need advice, help, or just a shoulder to cry on. I'm hoping that when my boys grow older I have the same relationship with them. It's definitely been challenging moving to a new state, new home, and new school with my boys. They definitely have a love and hate relationship with me. One day that tell me they love me and the next day I'm their worst enemy. I used to get so offended and be upset when they dislike me or tell me that they hate me, but I know it's just part of life. Kids have good days and bad days just like adults do.

I'm slowly learning that kids are just like adults and we forget that they are humans and that they make mistakes like we all do.  Like I mentioned in my previous post, I'm the mom that wants to do it all. I want to have my boys participate in everything academically and physically so that they are well-rounded. Reflecting back on my own childhood, I didn't grow up with a lot of money. Both my parents were immigrants from Vietnam and worked very hard and they instilled very early on that education is so important.  I remember countless times my mom would take my sisters and I to the library or did free classes in our community. We did not have much money to do any enrichment classes such as piano or any sports classes but I remember how happy we were to get to spend time with my parents. My point to this story is it's okay not to do it all. I feel like in today's society we get so caught up on doing everything for our kids. I feel the pressure to have our kids succeed they need to be good in sports, academically but we never stop to think about our child's emotional needs as well.  I'm learning to let go and really pick and choose activities that my kids will love and really focus on their emotional needs.

I'm also learning a lot of self-care and self-love. It's not selfish to take care of YOU and put your needs first. When you are happy it becomes a domino effect to your kids and family. I challenge you for Mother's Day to do something just for YOURSELF and not feel guilty for doing so. Not only do you deserve it, but you will be recharged for yourself and your family will benefit from it too. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate each and one of YOU. I also know that the holidays can be hard for some of us too, I'm thinking of you and know that you are loved.
