One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Mommy, Mom, Mother

10 Comments 1453 views

You guys all know how I feel about the toddler and being a mom. It truly was a life changing event for me to bring a child into this world. For those of you who don’t have kids I hope to inspire you not to wait to get healthy, I wish I "saw the light" much earlier in my life.

Anyway, I don’t mean to get sappy mid day. My mom just sent me a cute forward about moms and I wanted to pass it on as it is EXACTLY how I feel and pretty much describes me, as a mom, perfectly. Even if you don’t have kids you may appreciate it as we all have a mom. :~)

Real Mothers don’t eat quiche; they don’t have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn’t come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don’t want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers sometimes ask ‘Why me?’ and get their answer when a little voice says, ‘Because I love you best.’

Real Mothers know that a child’s growth is not measured by height or years or grade…It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother…

How cute is that? Just thought I’d share.

Side notes…

I’ll be back later with a Ask Roni Video. It’s being uploaded. I also just got back from my Weight Watchers meeting and the gym. I weighed in at 145 and worked my butt off! Feeling great! Off to eat lunch!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Savor the days of mommy and mom. My daughter is now almost 15. I am now addressed as “mother” most of the time, usually accompanied by rolled eyes. It makes me sad sometimes. Usually I remind myself how frustrating I felt my parents were when I was a teenager, which, looking back makes me smile, oh the circle of life!

    I still call my Mom Mommy sometimes. That is a great post. I think being a mother is the most important, exhausting, and rewarding job ever.

    Oh how true! I went through all of those stages. Once the kids are grown they get past the “Oh Mother” stage and go back to “Mom”. Love it!
