“When I become a Mom, I swear I would never…” Does this phrase sound familiar? Surely, you had your own set of expectations about what life as a Mom would be like, and what kind of Mom you will be. The “no-screen time Mom.” The “will always cook from scratch Mom.” The “I won’t be as strict as my own Mom type of Mom.” And so much more! But, as you know very well, Motherhood has many ups and downs. Eventually, you find yourselves doing the things you said you never would! It doesn’t make you a bad Mom at all. Just a real one!
