Ever since my sweet baby girl was born, I catch myself time after time trying to be perfect.
I want to have a daily set routine but of course it never goes as planned.
I want to plan our meals for the week ahead of time but I barely have time to cook.
I want to keep record of my daughters bottles/diapers/naps but I forget to write down a few and just give up.
I wanted to strictly breastfeed but for the sake of my physical, mental, and spiritual health, I needed to cut back.
I want a perfect Joanna Gaines style home but that’s not in our budget.
I wanted to keep my baby at work with me until she was a year old but I decided to send her to daycare because I was tired and struggling with work.
There are so many things I want to do to be the perfect Pinterest mom.
But being a perfect Pinterest mom is not what my husband and baby girl need…
They need a mama that will accept Jesus’ grace and extend it back towards them.
They need a mama who puts Jesus first.
They need a mama who takes care of them and doesn’t stress about having everything in order.
They need a mama that sets an example for their daughter.
They need a mama who’s in a good state of mind.
They need a mama who loves them unconditionally.
That’s the mama I want to be.
