ABCs of Motherhood

Editor’s note: Children learn their ABCs which in turn helps them to become readers, writers, and good spellers. As Moms, we need to learn the following ABCs of motherhood to show ourselves more grace, love, joy and patience. To all the Moms in the Momiverse, we wish you a motherhood in which you can relish the special moments. YOU are the most important person in the life of your child.

BELONG to a social group for Moms.

CARE for yourself like you care for your children.

DANCE with your children until the inner child in you comes out.

EAT chocolate. You’re entitled!

FORGIVE yourself for your mistakes over and over again.

GIVE up some control. Seriously, let it go!

HAVE regular date nights with your hubby. It’s a gift to your children.
