But we're moms so we do it and we do it every single day. (Some days better than others - right?) I bet you know a lot of Unstoppable Moms. When I think about all the Unstoppable Moms in my life, my mom is front and center. She was a teacher, wife, mother and so much more. When I think back, I wonder how she did it all. When I ask her about it, she says, "I just did. I had no choice." Well that seems simple enough, doesn't it? But how did she get dinner on the table every single night after she worked all day?
She loves to tell the story about the time I threw a temper tantrum in the aisle of a local grocery store. Apparently I wanted a TV dinner - one of those old-school tin ones with the aluminum foil covering the pudding. See, my unstoppable mom cooked dinner every night, so there was no need for a TV dinner. We never even had fast food. These days, I cook dinner on most nights, relying on my weekly menu plans to help keep me on track and make the job a little easier! (we DO have fast food sometimes =) )
|Me and my Unstoppable Mom|
We all have good days and bad days, and believe me, plenty of my attempts are NOT Pinterest-worthy, and that's ok. Part of this mom thing is just trying your best. But we all have a little something we can share with other Unstoppable Moms to help make life just a little bit easier for everyone, and that's a great thing!
