Love this family so much! They just welcomed their second baby boy in December and i’m so excited to share the boy mom title with my dear friend Kourtney. She is one of the sweetest people ever. She totally makes being a mom look good.

When Lynette asked me to write a statement about motherhood it really got me thinking. What is motherhood? What does it mean to me? How has it changed me?

Motherhood is hard, emotional, trying, exhausting, but above all, amazing. It is labeling yourself as a mom, and sometimes forgetting who you really are beneath the piles of laundry, dirty dishes, and copious amounts of legos. It is kisses and cuddles and multiple “I’m sorry’s”. It is wishing the day was over and at the same time wishing it would never end.

I may have bags under my eyes, a few extra pounds, and constant spit up in my hair, but being a mother has allowed me to embrace the imperfections and be grateful for all the chaos. It has opened my heart and eyes to something so much bigger. I have hopes and dreams that never would have existed without my children. So to answer my question of how motherhood has changed me; for the better. So much better.”
