How many times do you lay your head on the pillow only to beat yourself up about all the things you didn't get done or stress out on all the things you have to do?

Mama, give yourself a break! Have you ever thought of all that you accomplish in a day?

As a mom, you are a cook, a baby feeder, a diaper changer, a playmate, a driver, a banker, a nurse, a friend, a wife, a housekeeper, a launderer, a shopper and the list goes on.

While we don't often see the fruits of our labor, it really is a lot to juggle. Many of you are juggling careers on top of this. No offense to the guys, but a man would be hard-pressed to keep all these balls in the air.

So while you may wish you could accomplish more, please give yourself a break. Lower your expectations just a wee bit and give yourself a chance to enjoy your baby. Sometimes moms feel deflated because all of her jobs just need to be re-done in a matter of hours or days. We feel like we don't create anything. Take a look at your baby and realize that you created a miracle and she's here to stay!

Imagine if you were a single mother.

I love this post. I agree, I write down what I did at the end of the day to remind myself of all the little accomplishments.
