Goal-Setting, Happy Habits

The Biggest Difference Between YOU and THAT Mom

Have you ever found yourself staring at another mom wondering, “How does she do it?” Me too.

The put-together mom. You know the one who is ALWAYS put together — earrings, adorable shoes, real pants, hair perfectly coifed and yet… kids in tow.

How does she do it?

The workout mom. The one that makes it to Zumba classes each week and encourages you to go. Has three kids. Exercises regularly outside of the home.

How does she do it?

The organized mom. The one who knows about all of the special events happening in town, has the school schedule memorized, and seems to show up to all of those things on time. She has four super active kids in 3 different school buildings — preschool, elementary school, and middle school.

How does she do it?

The snack mom. She always has healthful snacks packed in adorable bento boxes, probably arranged in adorable designs, plus extra to share! She makes food so fun that your kids are begging her for more broccoli.

How does she do it?

The smiling mom. The one who can connect with anyone’s kid on their level. Kids can’t wait to see her and she can’t wait to see them! She can entertain your kid, her kid, and still has a hand and calm voice to help the mom with the kid having an epic tantrum.

How does she do it?

Well, I figured it out. The difference between you and that mom doing that thing you want to do is…

Priorities

THAT mom has made THAT thing a priority. That mom has made it a priority to feed her kids healthful snacks. That mom has made it a priority to look super cute every day. That mom has made it a priority to hit the gym three times a week no matter what.

Getting started on being THAT mom you want to be is merely deciding to be that and making it a priority. Simple to state but tricky in practice. When you say something is a priority you are saying it is important to you. It’s of value to you. That’s huge! The rest of it is knowing what you want and making dedicated to steps to get there. And that’s were you and I get stuck, right?

If You Aren’t Ready

If, for any reason, you aren’t ready to be any kind of mom but the kind who gets through the day, put this in your pocket. This is not a priority in your life right now, and that is OK. I’ve been there. But I do ask that you talk to someone if you think you need extra help– your friends, doctor, midwife, partner. They will want to know and they can help you. xoxo
