Top 5 Tips To Enjoy Your Motherhood To The Fullest
After 19 years of motherhood, Sheryl, 45, a full time homemaker and an avid reader tells us about the joys of motherhood. We learn that motherhood is not all about fun or enjoyment, it is hard work too. Read on to find out what Sheryl had to say about motherhood and how you can enjoy your motherhood.
1. Understand that your children will grow up to be like you
“One of the biggest joys of motherhood is to see your child growing up to be just like you in behavior and characteristics. Emma, who is now 19 and studying in a university, reminds me of the time when I was 19”, said Sheryl. You too can learn how to enjoy motherhood by watching how your little ones grow to be exactly like you and imitate your behavior in their own lives.
2. Take time out for your own self
As important it is for you to focus all your time and attention in the upbringing of your children, you must take time out for yourself every once in a while if you want to learn how to enjoy motherhood. “After every month or two, I used to drop off Emma at her grandmother’s so I could spend some time alone with my husband. This gave me the chance to actually step back and enjoy the little pleasures of life”, said Sheryl. Are you taking time out to relax and de-stress from your busy routine as a caring mother?
3. Share chores with your husband
“If you are going to act like supermom and try to do everything by yourself, believe me, you are heading for stressville and frustration land”, said Sheryl who always relied on her husband to share little chores around the house. Heed Sheryl’s advice and tell your partner that they will need to help you around the house if they want you to enjoy motherhood. After all, it’s all about sharing and caring in a marriage, isn’t it?
