Raw Moments: Mama I Need You

This post contains affiliated links. I receive a small compensation for each one. 


Happy Monday friends. I'm linking up with a few of my blogger friends to share some real life, real raw moments with you about Motherhood. Hey let's get real here - motherhood is crazy! It's not all these gorgeous photos of light shining through on our perfect moment smiling with our daughter. In fact, today's topic is how our kids always need us. And what exactly do my children always need it seems?

me.

Not my husband. Not one another. Just me. Always at the same time. It's kind of a running joke between my husband and myself that both our kids tend to always gravitate towards me and not him. But as Mom's aren't we mostly the 'care taker' the 'calmer one' or just that affectionate person.Of course I'm not saying Zach isn't these things but for whatever reason, my kids at all times, just need their Mother.

But on the contrary, what do my kids tend to gravitate towards needing all the time?

1. Their Butts Wiped- This may seem funny but it's true. My four year old tends to do it herself 90% of the time but lately she's been yelling from the hall bathroom "MOM! Come wipe my butt!" It's really awesome when guests are over too. #HelpMe

2. Sleeping Next To Them - My daughter has been in a phase the last few months where she wants my husband, or mostly myself, to lay down with her after her bath has been finished and her books have been read. Some kids love having their backs scratched or a song to help them go to sleep. My daughter just wants someone to lay down with her, which I really do love while she's still little.

3. Help With Projects - Although my oldest is only 4 and only gets a few projects to bring back to school, I know in the future she'll need help with school work. Writing is my love language but math and I have a mutual understanding that we just don't work well together. Thank goodness my husband is good with numbers to help in that subject. I actually can't wait to assist her in what she might need help with .

4. Kissing Boo Boos- The other day Landon took a pretty big tumble as he's learning to pull himself up onto everything and slowly beginning to crawl from room to room. Ahh it's crazy. Because of this, he obviously is prone to pretty big bumps and bruises, one that both my kids seems to be getting all the time. I'm the one that always kisses those bumps and bruises, assuring them that No...we don't need to cut that finger off..today ;) I'm the one that puts those bandaids on ( my daughter always asks for these ) and kisses them to feel better.

We need our Dad's and Mom's for different things. For my daughter, she only needs me when she need an extra push or reassurance. For my son- it's 24/7 ( a true Mom's boy at the moment ). I know I'm going to look back at these moments in a few years when Lily is 15 and Landon is 13..when the time comes for me to drop them off a few blocks away so they aren't seen with me or want me to hold their hand. Right now, I'm enjoying those moments..even if they are a bit traumatic or embarrassing.

  1. I don't have children so I can't relate to this post, but I do know that children tend to go to their mothers 90% of their times and almost never to their fathers. :) The mother-daughter or mother-son bond is so strong.

  3. This is sweet! My kids usually call for me most of the time as well. However, my daughter is a daddy's girl, so sometimes she just wants him.

  4. I can’t relate to these yet since my son is only 11 months old, but I can definitely guarantee all of these things will happen.

  13. This is such a sweet post! My son takes his turns between his dad and I, but I am certainly always called when something is "Ew" or when there's an "ouch". He's a momma's boy and I love every minute of it!

  14. My oldest daughter is depending more and more on her dad for things. It's wonderful to see their relationship develop, but there are times that only your mom will do.

  15. It's funny because my older children tend to go to me more, but my two younger ones gravitate to my husband a lot. My 18 month old falls asleep easier with my husband than me some nights and he has been very much a daddy's boy lately. I think he might know that my husband is going to go back to work and leave soon so that could be it too.

  17. I can relate. I love it when my little guy needs me to do things for him. I agree kids needs different parents to do stuff for them. Like you, I'm enjoying and embracing the moments.
