Surviving Motherhood with Humor

Updated on July 4, 2015

Surviving Motherhood with Humor

Recently I was asked to write a blog about something I was passionate about. Talk about a tough question! There are a lot of things I like/enjoy doing but I couldn't think of anything that I had a "passion" for. But after I thought about it for a few days I remembered an event that changed the focus of my life forever and created my passion. This was the day that my first child was born. It was also the day that I had to go back to an earlier passion - laughter.

Something I have always enjoyed doing - since I was a child - was making people laugh. I love to see people smile & look a little less worried about life than they did 5 minutes ago. I also discovered that I really needed to use my humor when it came to motherhood. Many times my children didn't "get" my humor but that is ok - I felt better with less stress therefore I am a better mom for them. I have 3 children - all girls - ranging from elementary age to college age so I am going through most of the stuff that encompasses motherhood. I use humor to help them and myself to get through life.

So that is what my lens will be about - surviving motherhood with humor. If you have a story about how you are getting through motherhood, please feel free to share. We can all use a new idea - and a laugh! I hope you can find something to help you through the day, hour, or the next minute. Enjoy!

My favorite thing about being a mom ...

I enjoy watching my children become great people/adults. I wonder where it came from sometimes!

Just for fun: Books I recommend

These are some of my favorite books - enjoy!

A few movies I recommend for your family, too

This is one of my favorite movies!

ps

Remember Moms - don't be too hard on yourself! We will survive this thing called "Motherhood" and come out on the other side with plenty of "medals"!

      I am also the mom of three girls. It's been a wide ranging experience. I've laughed, I've cried..I've laughed till I cried. In the end, they are all grown now and I just love them to death. Fabulous lens. 5*****

      Oh yes, mamas have to laugh - and there are so many things to be joyful about anyway! Enjoy the moments! Best advice anyone ever gave me as a young mom, "Love them unconditionally, and then pray that when they grow up they will make enough money to fix whatever you messed up." I like that! It works!

      Humor is underrated as a behavior management tool, too, with kids. Sometimes it solves everything!
