We can all use a little bit of inspiration to remind us of the job we’re doing as a parent. These can be things you say to yourself or share with a partner or a friend. They can help us when times are hard or we’re having a bad day or just give us a little boost to communicate some of the things our baby can’t say to us but is likely to be feeling.
Here are some quotes which might help to inspire you
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh)
There’s no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to be a good one (Jill Churchchill)
Remember when you found out you were pregnant and thought “how am I going to do this?” You did. Remember when you had a crying newborn and thought “how am i going to get through this?” You did. When days are hard. Just remember: You have. You can. You will. (Proud Happy Mama)
If you are a mom, you are a superhero, period (Rosie Pope)
Mom guilt: it’s the idea or feeling, that as a mother you are being selfish by doing something for yourself. Somehow we discount all the other things we do for our family and only focus on the one thing we aren’t doing for our family and feel bad about it. (Caitlin Otwell)
