This picture is a little pixelated cause it was taken on a phone. But I love it.
Before becoming a mom I used to say, “no way in hell am I going to ever have kids!” I never really wanted them for the same reason most people don’t want kids, I was selfish. I still am at times, of course. But I was for sure I didn’t want some kid taking up my time, energy, and MONEY! Ugh! Seriously. To be honest, when I got pregnant with Nevaeh it was not planned or even happy news for me, I cried and cried. But she changed my life… in a good way.
If I could describe motherhood I would say, it’s hard people… REALLY hard. But so worth it. Sounds weird, right? It’s totally weird to love someone that really didn’t do anything to deserve it. If anything, they do about a thousand things that if anyone else in the world did those things to you (ex. wakes you up several times at night, throws up on you, random tantrums, etc), you would have probably gotten rid of them LONG ago. But something about when Nevaeh just randomly stops what she’s doing and says, “I love you, mommy.” or “You’re soooo pretty.” Or Audrey when she grabs my face and just examines it, and then smiles the biggest gummy baby smile at me… ugh, makes my heart want to burst. Then it’s just worth it.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there, every mother. Whether you have physically had your own or you have become a mother to babes you have not birthed and treat them as your own (those are super special women in my book!). I hope you had a beautiful day and that someone gave you a nap! Robert gave me a three hour nap today, three hours!! That sweet man, love him.
