Mother's Day Mottos & Giveaway!

May 10, 2017

Hi friends!

 

With Mother's Day just around the corner, I'm finding myself reflecting on these past two years of being a mama. If you've been following along with me here on Thee Girl in Yellow, then you already know that I am the proud mama to two little one's, Karsyn Anne {2 years old} and Griffin Edward {10 weeks}. These sweet babies have made me 'mama' and the joy the two of them bring me is indescribable! But don't get me wrong, I'm busy as ever now that my husband and I have two children, and our lives can be a bit chaotic... but I wouldn't change a thing.

 

With that being said, this Mother's Day I will also be saying a little prayer and sending love and encouragement for all of my mama friends out there. I will also be saying a sweet prayer for all of those friends who are trying to start families, and for those mommy's who have lost babies... Our journeys to motherhood are all so different, yet relatable, and we all could use some encouraging words now and then {along with a prayer}. 

 

I wanted to share a little bit about motherhood through my eyes, and about motherhood as I know it...

 

Motherhood is so wonderful but so challenging at the same time... These days as a momma are FULL. Full of fun, full of chaos, full of dirty diapers, and full of endless loads of laundry. My days as a mama are full of tending to two littles ones while trying to teach myself patience. I'm constantly trying to teach myself to be patient, not only to be patient with my children throughout the day, but also with myself as a mother... These days are full of sticky fingers, animal crackers, and having a little one climb all over me... Yes, these days of motherhood can be long and tiring, but these days are so full of LOVE! -Kasey

 

Now it's giveaway time!!! I've teamed up with some of my favorite mama blogger friends and we are having a fabulous Mother's Day giveaway with a 'mommy and me' gift pack valuing over $500!... These gorgeous blogger mamas I'm sharing with you below inspire me on the daily, and I'm so happy to be able to call them my friends! We have each decided to share our own motto on motherhood, so we are sharing our beautiful and unique mottos below... Be sure and enter to win this amazing Mother's Day giveaway below!

 

 

Our Motherhood Mottos:

 

"Your greatest contribution to this world may not be necessarily what you do, but someone you raise. Changing the world starts with within your household."  

-Hannah of Brave Blonde

"Motherhood isn't about having a picture perfect home with spotless floors & perfect little ones running around... Motherhood is about loving on your crying baby at 3am, changing the millionth dirty diaper, & enjoying the sweet and very real moments that come along with being a mama... I'm just enjoying the journey of motherhood because these babies of ours sure won't be little like this for long."

-Kasey of Thee Girl in Yellow

"For me, being a mama is all about doing whatever it takes. Whether it's figuring out how to survive with a baby who doesn't sleep, or balancing work and motherhood, we all have to do what works best for our babies and our families. We are all doing the best we can, and no one is ever going to agree with everything you do (and that's ok!). You do you mama!" 

-Lindsay of Middle of Somewhere

"Motherhood for me is complete selflessness. I'm not the focus, my children are. Motherhood is all about never giving up the struggle. It's a struggle everyday but a beautiful and fulfilling one. When you tell yourself never to give up that's when the real beauty of a mom is shown. We fight the good fight of surviving the hard days and the good days. It's the only job in the world I never want to quit!"

-Alia of Little Mrs. Priss

"I believe motherhood is a personal journey that looks different for everyone. I think it's important for women to learn what their core beliefs are so they can incorporate them into their parenting style + daily routine. My motherhood motto is find who you are as a mom and be that, everyone else is already taken. Find your top 5 parenting values, thrive on those and don't fret too much about the rest." 

-Lindsey of Lindsey Lee & Co


"My motherhood motto is support and patience.  It's about allowing your tiny human to find their own way, while guiding them down the right path.  Then to not lose your "you know what" when they don't make the right choice." 

-Megan of The Fashionista Momma

"Motherhood is a marathon not a sprint.  I've learned to just do the best I can and to not be so hard on myself.  There is no such thing as a perfect mom."  

-Andrea of With Love Andrea

"For me, motherhood is about balance, grace, and love. Raising tiny humans is so hard and not at all glamorous, but it is also beautiful, amazing, and so rewarding. At the end of the day you just have to see the beauty in it all, give yourself grace, and embrace it. Amidst all the chaos, motherhood is a joyous journey."

-Jessica of Mama Essentials

"Motherhood in the last two years has taught me strengths I didn't know I had, fears I didn't know I could have, but most of all a love that I didn't know existed!! Motherhood is a wild and crazy ride that I feel so blessed to experience." 

-Kayla from A Darling Dream

"Motherhood is so many things, but the one word that encompasses it all for me is selfless. A mothers life is dedicated to loving and raising her children, often with little concern for herself. It is a crazy, fun, busy journey and there is nothing that has brought me more happiness in my life than my children." 

-Kaycee from Cordially, Kaycee

"I've only been a mom now for two years, but it has been the best two years of my life so far. Everyone always tells you when you're pregnant that your life is going to change once a baby comes, and it does, but for the better. You see this little person that you created growing each day and experiencing things for the first time and it brings you an indescribable joy to your life. Being a parent is the hardest thing I've done so far, but it is the most rewarding job I've ever had. I've had moments in my life where I wasn't sure if I wanted a child, and now that I have one I can't imagine not being able to experience such a crazy type of love for someone.  Does becoming a parent change your life? Absolutely, but I wouldn't  trade it for the world!"

-Sarah from Sew Sarah R

"Motherhood to me is trying to be present in the wonderful moments + the chaotic moments. Whether you're present or not, time will slip right through your fingers. #YouHaveMyWholeHeartForMyWholeLife"  

-Stefanie from What's Up Buttarcup
