You’re Doing OK Mom

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with JOHNSON’S® Baby and Latina Bloggers Connect.


At least I hope that I am. Ever since my girls were born I’ve always worried about whether or not I was doing an OK job raising them. It’s so hard being a mom. I have to admit really didn’t know just how hard, but I was ready for the challenge. My mom used to tell me that God does not give you anything you can’t handle.

I waited for my first for 3 years, so these challenges are welcome. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Everyday I look at them with my heart full of pride, and I never try to take for granted the little moments. Like the dancing ensues when their favorite song comes on, or now how they are interacting with each other more and more everyday, laughing together, playing together. It’s amazing to watch.

I’m a work from home mom, and even though I am with them all day, I worry about whether or not I’m spending quality time with them. It’s something that I think of, literally, everyday. But, everyday when I see them smile or hear them laugh at the top of their lungs, I realize just how happy they are. And that, it doesn’t take much to put a smile on their faces.

I think that… if they could, they would tell me I’m doing OK.

I am doing OK. I think we as moms need to remember now to be so hard on ourselves. We are doing everything we can, giving it all, sacrificing for our children and that IS enough. Trust me, I know it’s so hard to think that way, there will always something more, something better…but moms, it’s OK. You are enough. 🙂

Mother’s Day is approaching us and there’s a new JOHNSON’S® Baby “You’re doing OK, Mom” video you HAVE to watch. These videos make me cry every time. Not only that, but for every view, JOHNSON’S® Baby’s will donate $1 to Save the Children®.

You can view the YouTube video here.

What would/do your little ones tell you you’re doing OK at?

Happy Mother’s Day to you Mama!

    It is nice to hear that I am not alone in constantly worrying if I am doing it right….if I am doing OK. My little guy is only 6 weeks old and I spend so much time worrying if I am holding him enough (practically all the time), stimulating him enough, stimulating him too much! Did I read the right books? Listen to the right advice? It is nice to know that I am not alone in trying, at all costs, to be the best mom I can be. I think we all need to take a breather and remind ourselves that we ARE doing OK.
