Being Mom

Being mom is one of the greatest roller coaster rides of your life! You can literally feel the most joy, sadness, excitement, anger, and all kinds of other emotions you never knew the span of 5 minutes! You experience a love like absolutely no other. Suddenly, your heart lives outside of your body...and for someone like me that's not very emotional...this is hard! You never get a "break" because even if you're out with the girls, by yourself, with your spouse on a date, you are almost constantly thinking about your child(ren). When you have a child, you become a different person and you can never have the "old you" back. Even though you are still much more than "just mom", your precious one(s) have forever changed you and you will no longer be able to make decisions without thinking about how it will affect your kid(s). You will sacrifice sleep...HUGE for someone like me that could sleep 10 hours a night lol! You will sacrifice anything if it means that your children will be happy and, I'm not talking about giving them everything they want! You will have your heart torn in two if you have to deal with a child with medical conditions...especially if it means splitting time between your two children! You will burst with tears when your child cries on your shoulder because her best friend...and yours...dies. You will want to take their pain away and take their place...but you can't. You will burst with pride at every success they have and at times look at them and wonder how anything or anyone could be more beautiful and precious! You will look at them sometimes and completely understand how some animals eat their young...joking, not joking! You will become a member of a club of other women doing the best they can and some days just coming out with your kids alive means you are a success. The journey is hard and I'm not even half way through, but the roller coaster ride is worth every up and down and learning curve you take because those precious little ones make life so wonderful more often than not.
