Motherhood.. I am someone's Mommy now. HIS Mommy. Bennett is almost a year old, and this past year has been the most rewarding and challenging year of my life. Sometimes I look at my baby and realize that this IS the job I always wanted. Every day is Mother's Day, and I am so lucky.
I always wanted to be a Mama... and even though I have moments where I hate how it's changed my body, and even after all the sleepless nights, and the frustrating moments where I couldn't stop the crying in those early days, it has been the BEST thing I have ever experienced.. It didn't ruin my body.. in fact, this is what my body was made to do, and it's amazing. I can go without a little sleep, and eventually, he did stop crying, and he did sleep through the night. It's all part of the process. The funny thing is, I already miss those sweet newborn days. But when that little boy circles those chubby arms around my neck for a tight hug., I know that this is what it's all about. This is what I was put on Earth for.
Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, and to every amazing Mommy out there, especially all the Blogger Mom's who inspire me every day.
