I gave birth a few months ago to a lovely girl named Liz Audrey. She was an answered prayer to us, because my husband and I wanted to have a child right after getting married. Being a mother is the most fulfilling job and I learned a lot of things when I became one.
There is such thing as LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.
I love Liz the very first time I looked at her, and I knew back then that I would do everything to protect her and keep her safe, to make her happy and to give her a happy and comfortable life.
I can look at her all day, and will never get tired of it.
Looking at her is a hard habit to break and I will never get tired of it. She was just too perfect, and I can stare at her all day, all night.
I will live for her, survive for her. She is my motivation.
I managed to walk and carry my child a day after giving birth because I wanted to take care of my daughter. I was able to do household chores in less than a month because I wanted to be the one to wash her little clothes and feeding bottles. I wanted to be the one who looks after her. She was my motivation.
It hurts but its okay.
Your child, no matter how tiny she may be, can hurt you in her little ways. When she kick you right exactly where your stitches are, when she scratch you with her long fingernails, or when she hit you with her head whenever she’s crying. It actually hurts, but that’s okay. 🙂
My tears were not enough.
I cried the very first time I found out I was pregnant. I cried when I saw her tiny little hands waving at me during her ultrasound. I cried the very first time I saw her. I cried even when I am just looking at her. My tears are not enough to express my happiness, fears, and joy of having her in my life.
My daughter gave me happiness and fears that I never knew existed.
Having a child would give you happiness beyond measure, however, this will also give you fears that you never knew existed. I was scared that life would not be nice to her, or she would meet bullies on her first day of school. Random thoughts on crazy nights.
You would say your longest prayer for your child.
I probably said my longest prayer while watching my child asleep. I prayed that the Lord would bless her and would give her all the strength she needs to go through life. I prayed that the Lord would give me all the patience and wisdom I need to be a good mother for her. I prayed that even though its not possible, life would be fair to her.
Having a child would make you become selfless.
I am more excited to buy things for my child rather than for myself. Having a child would make you selfless. I just realized that I hadn’t check the newly opened H&M stores here in the metro because I’d rather visit Mothercare and Baby Company instead.
You can survive a day having only two hours of sleep.
I needed to feed my child every two hours, so that only means I need to wake up every now and then just to be there for her. But to matter how sleepless my nights are, I still manage to have the energy to be with her and run some errands in the morning. Talk about being a wonder mom! 🙂
Being a mom will make you master the art of multitasking.
Since there are days wherein my daughter wants to be carried all day, I managed to master the art of multitasking. I can open the television and other appliances at home with my feet and do a lot of things using one hand.
I just love being a mom and I am very much excited with the new experiences that awaits me.❤
