Everyone talks about how special motherhood and parenting 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 Raising kids is not always all rainbows and butterflies.

Motherhood is not remembering what it’s like to get a full night’s sleep and wiping more poop than you ever thought you’d see in your life. Raising kids is no longer having privacy, never peeing or showering in peace. Motherhood is using your shirt to wipe runny noses and dirty faces. Life with little children 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 breastfeeding whenever wherever. Motherhood is yoga pants and bad hair days. Motherhood is no longer shopping alone. Motherhood is 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 of everyday problems goes on. But in the end, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Having young kids and 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 intimate photography project just in time for Mother’s day, to remind everyone what motherhood really looks like. Some might find these interesting pictures raw, but that's how it is in real life.

My kids have mostly outgrown it (13 and 17) but our 2 labs have taken their place. ;) I figure I'm just not destined to ever pee alone. I swear giving birth is designed to get rid of whatever's left of your modesty in preparation for what's to come....lol

sorry, but i grew up with mom telling us "if you aren't bleeding or have broken bones, when i'm in the bathroom--leave me alone!" i raised my boys the same way. to this day, the bathroom is my 'safe place' to get away from stuff!

I’ve always wondered! Most moms seem to hate mothering if you judge by the pics online. Which seems accurate but I don’t see what the big deal is about just cleaning the room and locking the door to pee.

This is your choice. You can close doors, lock them if necessary. I could wait until my kid was asleep to use the bathroom, so there was never any need to have her in there with me when she was too little to leave alone for a couple of minutes. I don't understand having an audience when using the toilet.

I haven't even had kids and sometimes when I need to pee I NEED to. Not everyone can hold it until an undetermined time.

Probably an unpopular opinion but if a kid can ask for the breast they are probably too old to be breast feed.

My mum taught us to pick up after ourselves, even at that age - otherwise we'd feel the wrath of dad. And once she had cleaned it was expected to stay that way - as she put it .... "you can play, but we're not pigs so we will not live like pigs" The same with closing doors to keep the heat in "were you born in a barn...no...then shut the door" (never understood the barn. But I always shut the door)

For a lot of reasons, saying that Mom is a maid really raises my hackles. We all do a lot of things for our kids. I don't know, but when it gets said like that it's almost like an expectation or a task. I willingly did all those things when the kids were little, but I wasn't a maid! Not for my own kids.
