Be realistic in your expectations. Some of my hardest times in mothering have been because of unrealistic expectations. Expecting too much of myself, expecting too little of myself, expecting too much of my babies, or of my husband, the list goes on and on and on. Being realistic yet hopefully is life to the bones. Expecting that your over tired toddler might scream the whole way through the store but going anyway just to have them be a sweet saint and prove you wrong. Expecting that you will have to leave early or show up late because this that or the other, but planning it, doing it, and having a great time anyway. Hopeful and realistic. Remember mammas you are raising good humans, you are doing a marvelous job, and remember you have what it takes!
