With Mother's Day around the corner I started thinking about being a mother. This will be my 3rd year being a mother and the time for me just seems to be going by so fast. Time will never go faster then when you have kids. They grow and learn so quickly. Nathan being a new born seems like a faint memory to me now. If it wasn't for the pictures.. It just seems so hard to believe that he was that little at one time. I thought things like that would always stick in my mind forever. But truthfully they slowly leave you because of how much you focus on them and how they are now. That is why I am thankful for camera's to capture as many memories as I can. So that I can always have them and remember what a blessing I have.
When I first started being a mom it took me alittle while to get into the groove of things. Taking a shower, getting clothes washed, and most anything seemed hard to get done. I was so tired from the sleepless nights that most days I said screw it and didn't care. There were times I didn't know if I was going to make it feeling as crazy as I was. But then I would hold my sweet little boy and see his smiling little face and somehow I knew that I was going to make it and I could do this. It is not easy being a mother but it is so worth it. There are alot of hard times that get you to those awesome little moments that you wouldn't trade for anything in the world. I have learned alot about myself from being a mother. I learned about my strengths and weaknesses. I am alot more patient then I ever thought I was and to be a mom it is almost required to be so. Everyday I am learning something new in my walk as a Mommy. While there are alot of crazy moments... To me they are all worth going through for the sweet little face I wake up and see everyday. I Love My Life As a Mommy and I wouldn't want it any other way.
It has been a Stressful, Sleepless, Happy, Funny, Crazy time and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
