When I was pregnant I heard lots of things, and this sentence never got out of my mind:
“Once you’re a mother, you’re a mother forever!”
It is so true! When you hear the word “Mother”, lots of things ring a bell in your mind. Here are a couple of these things:)
Once I got married in all family occasions relatives started asking me when I am going to have kids. In the discussions about kids they always mention that you have to sleep enough before having them. So, you will get an idea that you will be having a lot of sleepless nights with the arrival of your little ones. But, you never get it until you have them.
Kids are the sweetest thing that could ever happen to you, they would take all your time. Day and night. They will drain all your energy, but at the end of the day you will gladly keep looking at their peaceful face when they fall asleep forgetting all the mess which was couple of minutes earlier.
Once you become a mom, you will remain a mom forever. It starts with the pregnancy, delivery, all the nursing, playing, singing, cooking, feeding and it never ends. Even when they get married they will call you to ask silly questions and waiting for your wise reply, because its their mom who will never judge them for the silly question and will always give them all the support, love and the answer to all the silly questions.
I never truly realized this until I became a mom, my look to my mom is different now. I never heard her complaining about anything, I never imagined what she had gone through until I was in her shoes. Being a mom is being a hero.
When you are single, you think about yourself. Then after getting married, you start thinking about you two. And after a while a new member arrives and the number of people you care about increases. You start thinking about yourself, your partner and your kids. Your priorities will change with time. What you could do when you were single, sometimes is not even an option with kids.
There is this video that has become very popular couple of months earlier about the toughest job in the world. I’d like to share it with you:
