We need each other! None of us are designed to do this life alone … without support, without community. But sometimes we just don’t know how to get over our self-reliance and get honest with others.
So, today on the 4:13 Podcast, we’re going to learn from author and podcast host, Heather MacFadyen, about how to not mom alone. But her insight isn’t just for moms! This applies to whoever you are and whatever you do.
The first words from a first born baby are just the best, aren’t they?
Our first child’s first word was… wait for it… wait for it… ball!
Yep, not original, but, girl, I wrote it down in the baby book, called my mom and was so excited I could have started a blog dedicated to his brilliance.
Then, he added words, but only a few. He called my husband “Dadda” and he could also say “up” when he wanted out of his crib.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I started thinking about what makes a great mom.
I decided there are 3 B’s.
Now, B could stand for “brainy,” and that would be a great quality for a mom. Or, it could begin the word “beautiful,” and who among us wouldn’t want that adjective describing us? The B could also stand for “buoyant” or “bouncy.” It could begin the words “brilliant” or “bargain-busting-babe.”
But I thought about my own mother and, even though many of the above adjectives describe her, there were still three more B’s she possesses that I hope will describe me as I grow as a mom.
