Being a mom is the hardest thing I have ever done. You can’t ever turn it off, you can’t ever stop being a mom. It’s not like a job you can just quit or walk away from when you’ve had enough. If you’re sick you still have to get up and take care of them, even if you feel so bad you don’t think you can walk. It’s hard on your body, it’s hard on your mind, it’s hard on your emotions.
Thankfully all of those things are outweighed by all the best parts of being a mom.
The best love I have ever known. Being a mom has shown me a love I have never felt before in my life. I never knew that it could be this strong. It makes my heart want to explode. I look at my sons sometimes and I just start crying because they are just so beautiful and amazing and precious.
They are the most beautiful beings in the world. Their smiles, their hugs, their dance moves. It’s all so wonderful. Everything they do is cute, no one’s kid is cuter than my babies. Every mom feels this way. The things that they come up with, their facial expressions, their laughs. They’re so smart and funny.
They make my life worth living. Before I had them I didn’t know what my life was for. I know it sounds corny but my life had no meaning until they came along. I have all the motivation I need to do things with my life because I have them to take care of and to be an example for.
They make me a better person. Before I had them I was a pretty selfish person, I was judgmental and hard on parents because I had no idea how hard it is to be one. Now I see things differently. I have more patience, I don’t have such high expectations on others and myself. I feel more compassion for others because I now see them as someone’s child and not just a person. I have seen actual innocence and it has softened my heart.
There are times when being a mom is hard but I wouldn’t change a thing.
