What are some things that you need to/try to remember as a mom?

Here are some of mine:
-Not to take it personally when I work hard to make a delicious, well balance meal and Max spits at it and throws it on the floor. He's just learning to express his likes, dislikes, and independence.
-Not to get frustrated when Max throws everything everywhere and rearranges everything he can pick up, push or roll. He's just learning about how the world works.
-To make sure I rock him for an extra few minutes every night. It won't be long before he'll be too big for me to rock at all.

I need to remember....

-- that when Betsy runs to her teachers at daycare or when she hits my arm when I go to pick her up, it's a sign that she loves being there and that it doesn't mean she doesn't love me. My kid likes being there -- I should be thankful!

-- that I don't have to be the perfect mom. I don't have to get everything done, every day. As long as my little girl is clean, healthy, and happy, that's all that matters.

-- that just like Amy, it's alright to have to rock her to sleep sometimes. I know she CAN fall asleep on her own, so on the nights she needs a little more comfort, it's not a step backwards. It's enjoying a moment that will be fleeting soon enough.

My biggest thing to remember is: Everything is just a phase!

I need to remember to appreciate how much Caleb loves & wants me. I get so frustrated when he's constantly at my feet begging/whining to be picked up while I'm trying to accomplish just one thing around the house.

- To have more patience.
- That it's just a phase.

I'm sick and Eli is a total momma's boy, so I was getting frustrated with him wanting to climb all over me when his daddy was sitting on the floor with his toys trying to get him to play last night.
Right now, I need to remember that I will not always be his favorite person so I need to appreciate these moments.

I need to remember to be grateful for how things are each moment because my baby is growing up. Evan has been sick and clingy, whiney, and not napping. I have been getting too caught up in 'needing some space', but I need to remember that this too shall pass and I am lucky to have a momma's boy.

I need to remember :
- the state of my house does not reflect me as a parent ( i do not have to have a clean house to be a good mom).

- and patience with everything !!!!

-- messy is ok ... it can be cleaned and with kid's it's not supposed to stay perfect/clean (both with kiddos and the house)
-- this too will pass (it's just a phase)
-- enjoy the middle of the night cuddles -- someday she'll not want to anymore
-- it's ok to take a breather and to need one
