My mom asked me this weekend how I liked being a mom. To be honest, I’m not so sure about the whole mom thing. First off it’s pretty overwhelming, sacrificing, scary, and let’s not forget exhausting. Then I thought about all the grief I gave my mom as I got older and knew I was probably in for some of my own grief. Was it all really worth it? I explained this to her as I was holding Jack. But Jack… I love Jack. I like being Jack’s mom; how his crying stops when I hold him, how he smiles at me like he knows me, how my favorite time of day is in the morning when we cuddle together, and how I really would do anything for this little boy. Being Jack’s mom is pretty great.
I know I said I would be sharing a preview of the house – it’s coming tomorrow I promise!!
Happy Mother’s day to you! I so appreciate this post and your genuineness! It’s refreshing to hear your honesty about motherhood. 🙂
