The moments we rock motherhood don’t seem to happen every day, and certainly don’t happen as often as we need them. And then out of nowhere, there they are.

However and whenever these moments happen, they’re the times that feed our soul.
These moments encourage us, making us swell with pride.
These moments give us the strength to snap our fingers and tell the world, “Motherhood? Pfft, I got this.”
Because we do.
ABOUT MEREDITH: Meredith Spidel blogs at The Mom of the Year, dedicatedly earning her title one epic parenting fail at a time.
