hi! i’m sydney
mother, blogger & creator
If there is anything that my almost six years of motherhood have taught me thus far – is that I will never be the perfect mom. I will never know all there is to know, I will never get everything right, and I will never have all the answers. I’ve made a million mistakes and I’ll make a million more. Just when I think I’ve mastered motherhood and I know all my daughter’s wants and needs, she gets another year older and all her wants and needs change yet again.
I figure we all have two options as mothers:
Option one, we can drive ourselves crazy trying to be the perfect mom, beat ourselves up every time we make a mistake, compare ourselves to other mothers who we think are doing it better, fill ourselves with an endless supply of stress, worry, fear, and anxiety thinking we are screwing up our children somehow, and basically lose our minds slowly…
Or option two, we can just do our best. We can love our children with everything we have inside of us, we can accept that motherhood is a constant process of learning and relearning and be open to changing our perspectives and learning new things, and we can embrace the fact that motherhood is the biggest journey of growth we will ever take.
That is the idea behind Motherhood Sprouting
Motherhood is a continual, beautiful, chaotic, amazing, messy, magical experience of loving, learning, and growing as a mother and as a human being.
I can’t help you with the loving or growing part, that’s all on you. However, I can be a resource for the learning part! I can share all the things I’ve learned along the way with you and hopefully be a helping hand on your motherhood journey.
That’s what I’m doing here on Motherhood Sprouting. Just sharing information. You can take it or leave it. Love it or hate it. Agree or disagree. My hope is that something I share makes your motherhood experience more enjoyable in some way. Maybe it’s a mom hack that makes your days easier or a breastfeeding experience that makes you feel a little less alone or a baby gear guide that helps you make your next purchase.
Anyway, I tend to ramble and over-explain, so I’m just going to stop myself right here. I think you get the idea.
Have the most beautiful day and enjoy Motherhood Sprouting!
