Jesus, chocolate and coffee Momma Says Series

Mother and client Jennifer S. shares some great advice for all moms. Especially mother's of all boys!

Thank you Jennifer! You are a rock star momma and inspirational woman. Hope you all enjoy as much as I did. Join me in wishing her a Happy Mother's Day! - C


Being a mother to three boys takes a lot of Jesus, chocolate and coffee and/or wine (depending on the day!).

Each day brings a new set of challenges and joys. These precious little people do not come with instructions and there are no two just alike . . .

Some days, I feel like a total parent rock star and others like a complete failure.

No one can prepare you for how hard and exhausting it is, but . . .

I was also not prepared for how much LOVE one heart could experience. Each child has filled my heart in places I never knew existed. These precious souls make me stop and see the world in a whole new light.

What I would say to a new mommy of boys? Hold on tight and pack your sense of humor. They are wild, adventurous, dirty, curious, daring, did I mention dirty?

Your once nicely organized and decorated home will become a daily battle field for epic warrior scenes and they will build forts and hideouts in every place possible. You better think farts are funny too, or your life will be miserable.

However, in the mess of it all, they have also given me the most tender and magical moments I could ever imagine.

You never get this day again, so love them with all you've got.... and then go fall into bed and be prepared to do it all over again in a few hours:)
