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.

I don't think supermarket shopping could ever be considered peaceful. Although re-looking at the pic it's a toy store? That's never going to be easy.

How old is that kid, like 4? If you can have a conversation with a child, they shouldn't be A) breastfeeding or B) Crapping their pants. It's weird.

It's a lovely photo but I'd be worried the baby would lean over the stove suddenly and I'd drop 'em in the pan. I am especially clumsy though!

I'm sure the book will be telling her to set rules and boundaries. Even from the age of 2. It can be tough, but it helps in the long run.
