Do you ever feel like you are failing? Or overwhelmed as a mother? Wondering if your house is the only one with the pile of shoes by the entryway and a big stack of dishes in the sink? Does pinterest and the highlight reel of a hypothetical perfect life feel like too much? Do you just need a reminder that what you are doing in the midst of motherhood really matters?
If so, you're not alone.
These letter inspire. They encourage. They remind you, the mother in the midst of the journey, that you are doing amazing things in the ordinary.
We're in this motherhood race together.
Look at everything you've already done today. Look at when you did great - when you didn't flip out over spilled milk or when the laundry was caught up or when you just decided to forget about getting the dishes done and instead picked up your toddler and read the same book over and over and over.

I want you to know that what you are doing matters -- and that where you are right now in your parenting journey is seriously one of the hardest stages in my own parenting journey. You are needed all day long. It is exhausting. There is no fanfare, no awards, no blue ribbons, no nothing for being a mom. And sometimes, it's easy to think that what you are doing doesn't matter. That your work - the picking up, cleaning, diaper-changing, nose wiping, feeding, rocking, reading, cooking and more doesn't matter.
But, dear sister, it matters. Deeply. Life matters.
Dear Mom with Littles
Don't let life, don't let the crazy pace of life, the unending cycle of busy rob you from the minutes with your family. Don't let the books that they want to read stay on the couch for days until the day when that old Arthur book never leaves the shelf because the six year old has grown and lost interest in the story.
Just watch the in a minutes. Or the just a seconds, waits, hold ons, and more.
Dear in a Minute Mom
