Motherhood Is

Not for the faint of heart.

Those teenage and preteen years are hard. Hard on everyone. It is so hard to grow up. To learn how to control your emotions and/or hormones. To feel so out of your skin. We try our best to reach out and be available to our children. But sometimes, there are just moods. Moods for days.

We get sarcasm. We hear non stop fighting. And we get “the look”.

But that’s okay. That’s what we are here for. To pull them out of their rooms, to break up the fights, to clang their heads together (metaphorically speaking), and to shake the life in or out of them (again, metaphorically speaking). And when we do, things turn out quite alright.

Motherhood Is… is a blog circle project celebrating motherhood through photographs. Please click through the links so you can see all the wonderful projects put together by this fantastic group of women!
