"I'm not doing laundry; I'm raising kids." - Jessica Smartt Memory Making Mom
What if you aren't simply washing the dishes, doing laundry, driving...and all those other mundane tasks that come along with being a mom?
No one told me all the other extra "stuff" that goes along with being a mom! The piles of laundry, the amount of dirt and grime in my house, brushing more teeth than my own, becoming an a Uber driver...an unpaid one at that!
What if these aren't mundane tasks that you loathe though? What if these tasks are actually raising your kids? What if doing the dishes is raising your children?
How you think about something creates your reality.
If you think doing the dishes sucks...then it sucks.
If you think doing the dishes helps raise your children...then that's what it does!
There is a story about a father that would bring his sons along with him to purchase cows for their farm. He would involve his kids in the whole process. When someone asked why he involved his young sons in raising the cows he answered, "I'm not raising cows; I'm raising boys."
Change how you think of the seemingly mundane tasks:
"I'm not doing dishes; I'm raising kids."
"I'm not an unpaid Uber driver; I'm raising kids."
