Motherhood Monday: When Times Get Tough

The early days for my newborn babe and I were blissful, but also stressful due to some complications. Simple words, loving reminders, and inspiring quotes have always gotten me through the toughest of times. So fellow mommy's, when you have one of those classic mom-melt-down-milk-brain-zombie moments read this post and feel inspired!

Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did. But backwards, and in high heels.

When breastfeeding seems impossible, just put on your pretend dancing shoes

It takes a village to raise a child...

Accept any and all help given to you, embrace the many  "mothers" in your life

How can one not believe in God when you see the 
perfection of a tiny fingernail?

When times get tough count those fingers and toes, kiss each and everyone of them, and know that life is GOOD


  1. I imagine the "it takes a village" thing is pretty important to remember. Good for you for accepting help!

  2. It is important! And an easy one to forget in this culture if we are not careful!
