You don't have to be a mama for long to realize it's a full-time gig. As in 24/7, 365-days-a-year full-time. Sick days? They belong to your baby. Rainy days? They belong to your toddler. Perfect-should-be-spent-on-the-beach days? You guessed it—your kids own those, too. But while this selfless season of life can be draining, there's something else about it you might not have expected: You wouldn't trade it for anything. So celebrate these days, mama. They'll be over before you know it.

XO,
