Welcome to Motherhood Moments! Here is a little background to how this blog began, and how it got its name. More than 2 years ago, I sat listening to a talk by M. Russell Ballard. These words caught my attention, "...the joy of motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times. But amid the challenges, there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction." These words rang so true, and have stayed with me ever since. Yes, there are definitely hard and frustrating times: sleepless nights, tantrums, sibling fighting, endless messes to clean up, potty training . . . just to name a few. But then there are the moments of joy: hearing "I love you," when your child says "mama" for the first time, the beautiful sound of a baby's laugh, the hugs, the funny things they say . . . and many more. These joyful moments make all of the challenges worth it! Hearing that talk inspired me to try harder to recognize and enjoy these special moments. I have also learned along the way that I can purposely make these moments happen more often. As I try harder to give each of my boys individual attention and plan purposeful, fun activities for us to do together, we are all happier!
I plan to use this blog as a place to:
1.) store and organize my ideas (and the fabulous ideas I find from other sources) to use again in the future
2.) share my ideas with others
3.) recognize and record the joyful moments
I am a stay-at-home-mom to FOUR fun little boys (yes, I'm totally outnumbered!). I love planning crafts, games, and other types of activities to do with my boys. This blog is a place for me to store and share my ideas as well as the great ideas I come across in other places. It is also a place for me to record some of my "motherhood moments" - especially the joyful ones!
