Born to be a mom
Being a mom has not been the easiest thing in the world. With worrying, staying up late comforting baby, feeding diaper changing, even going out is hard. But it all is worth it in the end! I was born for this, born to be a mom.
Caring for a newborn
When I first had him, I thought it was going to be so hard! It actually wasn’t because I had already learned so much from my sister and her babies. I already knew how to change diapers, soothe them, and carry them. It was never scary to carry babies it just always came to me naturally.
God put me on this world for the purpose of being a mom.
Since I was little I always knew that I wanted to be a mom. I also wanted to be a young mom. But in that time it was for the wrong reason. For example, I would say “I want to be a young mom so that I can go clubbing with my daughter!” Now that I’m a little bit older and wiser and have God in my life, I tell myself that I want to be a young mom so that I can enjoy my children. So that I can teach them and even learn things along the way with them.
“Live your life” advice …?¿
I had so many people tell me my whole life to wait “to live my life” before having children. For all those people “living my life” meant going to parties, getting drunk, finishing school and traveling. Two of those are very valid, the last two. And I would always answer to them, that may be the way they lived their life but that wasn’t how I planned on living mine.
First off, I hate going to clubs unless it’s with my family and drinking, even worse, I don’t like it! Traveling the world, yes totally but why travel the world if I have no one to share that experience with. And school, yes I plan on going back to school but to become a Midwife. Many people think I am very mature for my age, I have my brother and sister to thank for. They are a lot older than me so I grew up with people older than me. Which probably explains why my husband is 13 years older than me and why I only like older men. Hahaha!
Anyway back to the story.
I was born to be a mom, I know I was, and to help people have children. Just love them so much and especially love my son with all my heart! I have never loved someone so much in my life. Everyday with him is such a blessing and everyday I learn something new. Just watching him go through all his milestones is so heartwarming. His first smile or laugh! When he cries uncontrollably I can’t take it! I just grab him and hold him and breast feed till he calms down because it makes me sad to hear him like that. All I want to is comfort him!
All the little things
Even diaper changing makes me feel like bonding closer to him. Especially when it’s late at night and you’re changing them and they poop all over the bed and you! Those are the best!!! hahaha JK does suck but still I love him. He is the most amazing baby ??I can’t believe that God blesses me everyday with this amazing baby. He thankfully sleeps throughout the night and barely ever cries so I have not had a long night except once. It doesn’t matter, if I get to see that baby smiling in the morning it’s all worth it. I would do anything for this bundle of joy because he’s worth it.
Being born to be a mom is the biggest most amazing blessing and I can’t wait to have more in the future for now I will just enjoy this beautiful baby!
Favorite motherhood scripture!
A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
