What is Mother’s Day without a little fun and a good sense of humor? I mean, if I’m being really truthful, I would probably be collapsed in a puddle of my own tears, piles of dirty laundry, and discarded apple sauce pouches if not for a well cultivated sense of humor. I don’t think you can happily survive in Momiverse without one. And surrounding yourself with a similar Mom Vibe is everything! I’ve found that as I become a more seasoned Mom, and my kids’ needs shift and become more complex, that I am drawn more towards Moms who have a similar outlook on Motherhood that I do.
Back when my babies were tiny infants, it was more about finding other Moms in the same stage of life that I was currently living. Newborn needs and schedules are so all-encompassing– I remember just being grateful to speak to another Mom who was in the trenches like I was. Now I find that I seek out Moms who might have a similar parenting dynamic that I have, or who raise their kids a similar way. It makes hanging out SO much easier and I find it creates a really strong sense of community within our group of friends as well. I’m somebody who has a lot of acquaintances from many different backgrounds and walks of life– with totally different ways of raising kids– but my core group of ladies all have a lot in common.
I have found that since being a part of a group of friends like this that I have really found so much inspiration from the Moms I’m close to, and that it has given me a lot of accountability towards being the best version of myself as a Mom. I’m in a Mom Entrepreneurs Supper Club with four other women, and just having those Moms to compare notes with– who all own their own businesses AND have their kids and marriages to balance I the mix– is such huge gift. One of the Moms in that group is Julia of Lemon Stripes Blog! We love bringing our friendship to work with us– and we’ve had the best time creating some fun content together.
