“As Mother’s Day approaches and everybody’s scrambling on what’s the best gift, I want to give a little advice from a mama of 13 years.
One thing not talked about is the heaviness of not feeling seen as a mom.
All the tiring, hard work of raising tiny humans who can’t yet articulate a simple ‘thank you.’
We love being mothers, but sometimes, it is so hard.
To be honest, all we want to hear is:
‘You’re doing a good job.’
‘I appreciate you.’
‘I see you.’
It’s not the flowers and massage or a one-day celebration, it’s those tiny little reminders that cost nothing but mean everything.”
