Are you a mom? Well hooray! I’m a mom, too.
And you know what I’ve learned from being a mom? You don’t get those moments back.
The happy ones, where your kid just reeled in his first fish.
The frustrating ones, where potty-training took F-O-R-E-V-E-R.
Those dinner table moments, where you talked about your day. Where ALL of you took a time out, sat down, and talked about your day. Where your oldest was infamous for having seconds, and thirds, of their favorite dish, while announcing their grandiose plans for the weekend, even while your face clearly showed disapproval of their current decision-making skills.
The moment where your kids stop saying, “when I grow up…”
Because **NEWSFLASH** – they ARE growing up. And it’s that moment when you realize that, in all the time you have been a mom, you have precious little proof to show for it. I know as moms, we may not think our everyday life is fabulous. But could you even begin to imagine what your family’s life would be like without you in it?
Ask yourself this: how many memories have you been a part of? Quite a few, right?
Now ask yourself this: how many memories have you documented?
It’s one thing to be there, on the other side of the camera, capturing that perfect smile of your youngest as they blew a gigantic bubble for the first time. That’s a worthy photo, for sure. But it’s another to show that you were there too. The look of delight on your face. The proud clasp of your hands to your chest. The enthusiastic clapping and warm, enveloping hug that ensues.
Don’t just tell someone you’re a mom.
So go ahead. Keep being with the people you love the most. Keep throwing your head back in laughter. Keep creating, and dreaming, and planning, and being.
Keep living your life. And leave the documenting to me.
