Happy #Mothersday! Here are some of my favorite quotes about motherhood… aka #cantwait
Out of everything I’ve accomplished, my proudest moment, hands down, was when I gave birth to my daughter Blue,” the 20-time GRAMMY winner told Garage Magazine in March 2016.
“ I’m not at all ashamed of [my] children. I try to find creative ways to incorporate them into my feed because they are the biggest part of my life, but I also work very hard to keep their identities as private as I can considering they are only children”.
“You’re very sleep-deprived. Sometimes you have a crying baby and you can’t do anything to get them to stop crying…you feel, as their mom, that you should be able to have all the answers and be able to take care of them so easily. But, babies don’t come with a manual and you don’t always know what’s going on. So, it’s easy to get frustrated and it’s easy to blame yourself — especially being sleep-deprived and on a hormonal roller coaster!”
“You never know when you’re gonna get crapped on or when you’re gonna get a big smile or when that smile immediately turns into hysterics. It might be like living with a drug addict.”
‘My favourite thing about being a mom is just what a better person it makes you on a daily basis. Every morning when I wake her up, the endgame is, “Can I get her to smile?” And that puts me in a good mood. It’s definitely a different way to live – and a much better one.’
Like so many working mothers all over the world, I feel the constant struggle to be the best mother I can, whilst setting a good example to my children to work hard. I travel for work when it’s necessary, and I miss them all the time when I am away.’
‘It is an adjustment trying to balance a career and motherhood for sure, but the key is to prioritize. You become more selective and work on projects that are so meaningful because you want every other waking moment spent with your family. You have to remember though to make time for yourself.’
