Mommy Moments – Dear Mom

mommy moments

The Dear Mom theme on Mommy Moments for this week is to post a letter made by your kids or a letter to your mom or a letter you made for any other mom.

My Johan is too young to even walk lest write me a letter and I’ve already featured my mom to one of my posts, so I chose to write a letter to to myself knowing that other moms would relate to it as well.

Dear Mom,


You are doing one great job as a mother. There may be times when you think you’re near the end of the rope and you sometimes doubt your sanity, rest assured though that most if not all moms experience the same thing. When your child was born you thought you weren’t capable of caring for a newborn, you had no idea how to change a diaper, you didn’t know what colicky means until your child cried out in the middle of the night, you absolutely don’t know what to do. But a few months after, you’re now counting how many syllables your baby has blurted out, you go after a fast-crawling infant, you try to hold on to a squirming baby wanting to be free from your arms. Time is fast, dear mom, the baby you are now holding will soon be a little man with a mind of his own. For now, it will be okay to kiss him and hold his hand in public, but time will come when he’ll outgrow that and he’ll want you to stay just a few little steps back when you bring him to school, a little far behind so his classmates won’t see you but still close enough for him to feel you are there.


You may feel unappreciated at times but when your son looks up at you and holds your finger while you're putting him to sleep or during those times when his eyes sweep across the room to find you and he gives you that huge grin when he finally sees you, that only means that you are loved by that small creature and to him you are the world.


You are a good person, mom, and no matter how different your parenting is from the others, you and the other moms are all on the same team with one goal in mind – to be the best mom you could be for your kids.

I guess Moms have the same feelings and worries too. But I think we are all doing a great job in raising our kids the best way we can.

So well written, Mae. Love it. My eldest is at that stage where he doesn't want to be kissed and hugged anymore. But I still have two younger ones who showers me with kisses and hugs.
