Being a mother now for a little over a year has been an amazing experience. Each day is a new day, each smile and dino roar is better than the last.
I truly had no clue that being a mother could bring this much happiness. To be honest, I was afraid of becoming a mother. I was so unsure of where to start and how to even being nurturing a life to grow at it's fullest potential. Before he was born, I would search for strength and think back at all the things that important woman taught me through out the years. Finding strength in lessons taught to me, I knew that I could do this job to the best of my ability and yes, there would be times where I would mess up but, that was all a part of the gig. Each day I would learn something new, end the day with a new found trick on how to do 3 things at once. There are days when I failed, when I landed flat on my face at the end of the day from exhaustion, where I would forget all things known to woman like what day it was or when was the last time I fed him, where I would feel like I could never come out the day alive. With one bad day came 7 great amazing days that quickly erased the all the crazy bad ones. Now, I look back and see nothing but his smile and the copious amount of coffee that was drank!
As I look at him right now I see that same happy smile and know that it is all worth it! Everyday that goes by it's worth it! Yes, this kids blood pumps nothing but JOLT cola with a splash of pixy stix and runs me ragged some days but, I wouldn't and couldn't ask for a better more fulfilling job! He is the best gift I have ever been given. He was worth the years of trying, tears, and hopeless nights and days. He took his time picking us out to be his parents and I am sure happy he chose me to be his mama.
simply put: being a mom kicks ass!
Happy Mothers Day to all my Mothers out there!
