I Took These 22 Honest Photos Of Moms To Show What “Mother’s Day” Really Looks Like

Everyone talks about how special motherhood is, and the bond shared with a child is unlike any other, it’s a magical journey that is both rewarding and satisfying, and I couldn’t agree more. I absolutely love being a mom, it’s the best job in the world. I am a mom of two boys and love them to pieces, but motherhood is not always all rainbows and butterflies.

Motherhood is not remembering what it’s like to get a full night’s sleep, wiping more po-op than you ever thought you’d see in your life. Motherhood is no longer having privacy, never peeing or showering in peace. Motherhood is using your shirt to wipe runny noses and dirty faces. Motherhood is learning how to do everything with one hand while carrying a baby in another. Motherhood is waking up with a little butt or foot in your face. Motherhood is bre*st-feeding whenever wherever. Motherhood is yoga pants and bad hair day. Motherhood is no longer shopping alone. Motherhood is having a filthy car all the time. Motherhood is not being able to call in sick because it’s a 24/7 job without a paycheck and the list goes on. But in the end, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Being a mom means being completely and totally overwhelmed by love, joy, responsibility, and selflessness.

With the help of my mommy friends, I created this little project just in time for Mother’s day, to remind everyone what motherhood really looks like.
