New Mom, Who This?
Ever since I gave birth to the worlds most beautiful little girl, I’ve been asked the same question repeatedly. “How does it feel to be a mom?” I never have a response, simply because the answer isn’t easy to put into words. Being a mother for the first time is a mixture of your biggest fear and your greatest accomplishment.
Being a mother is my biggest fear because I am responsible for another life. It is my job to feed, clothe, and raise my child. What if I don’t instill the correct morals in her? What if I’m too strict and she doesn’t feel comfortable coming to be with a problem? What if I’m too lenient and she’s a wild child? What if I turn out to be a terrible mother? All these thoughts race though my head. Granted, I’m doing the absolute best I can, but there is always a doubt. I think every parent aims to give their child more than they had, what if I fail in that category.
Being a mother is my biggest accomplishment because I get to wake up to the most beautiful bundle of joy. Every morning, her drooly gummy smile elevated my mood. If I’m going through anything, one look at her gives me the strength to power through my problems, and emotions because I know she needs me at my best. I pushed a life into this chaotic world; not only did my body harbor a tiny human from a ball of cell to an infant, but my body also nourishes my child. I get to witness my daughters development first hand, which is still tripping me out. She’ll go from discovering her feet to graduating high school some day. One glance at her makes me smile, nothing else is a better feeling.
I’ve been kicked, slapped, drooled on, popped and peed on, bitten, and scratched. I’ve had tiny toes and little fingers in my mouth and nose (against my will), my hair pulled, and many restless nights. I’ve received numerous wet gummy kisses, and more gummy smiles than I can count. I would’nt trade any of it. God willing, I hope to experience it with another gift of life.
