Baby, I love the children so much. I would never try to take the place of their mom. I have enough love in my heart to be an additional mom to love them, nurture them, help them to grow up well, and save their future relationships by showing them how you are treated with love and compassion. I love you so much, Honey. ILYMTMOL

They will remember if you were there for them or not

Of course, we want to avoid extremes. Children need security and finances are a part of that. But, my husband and I live modestly and it allows us to be there for our little Grace💜

If you can't breathe and you're feeling the pressures of being a mom let me tell you - I get it. Sometimes the pressures of being a mom can crush and overwhelm. Especially during the holidays. Then it seems like not only do we have to win at the motherhood thing but we're now thrust in the crazy world of holiday expectations, that if you're like me, you're bound to fail at. Even though it's not failing, it's just pressures.

Your kids don't need a perfect mom. They don't care that the house is messy or that you haven't showered.
