Top Lessons motherhood taught me!
Becoming a mother has changed me in many ways. I have learned to cook and eat healthy for my son. Because I am breastfeeding I get drained easily. I carry around lots of water and juice to keep myself from dehydrating. I hated drinking water. But now I cry for it. These are my top lessons I’v learned from motherhood.
Motherhood has taught me how love is selfless.
I never knew how much more I could love till my baby was born. It requires me to forget about sleep, play and lots of other things for my baby.
Motherhood has taught me to put someone else’s needs before mine. Before he was born it was all about me. But after he was born I go in a shop and I look at what I can get him rather than myself. It’s really hard to buy for myself. #MomGuilt is real.
Motherhood has shed more light to show much my mother cares and loves me.
It has changed the outlook on how I view her. Especially when it comes to think of all the sleepless nights she has when pregnant, with a newborn and lots more to come.
Motherhood has taught me that I am stronger than I think I am. It has given me a sudden reflex I never knew I had when my baby needs me.
Motherhood has taught me that I am worth something and very important. I am not just here. I am very useful, talented and worth happiness.
Motherhood has taught me pure joy and pure love.
I can be having a rough morning, just seeing the smile on my son’s face melts all the stress away. It gives me the strength for the day and a reason to wake up in the morning.
Motherhood has made me mature and I care less about small things that once frustrated me. It has given me strength and wisdom.
Above all else motherhood has given me a smile. A reason to keep get up each morning and live. No matter how rough it gets my son looks up to me. And I know I can do it because of him. It has also showed me I am worth so much more. My son simply loves me. He doesn’t judge me, even with all my flaws.
