On Being a Mommy

3:04:00 PM

It's finally nap time around here. As I sit here drinking my second cup of coffee for the day and waiting for laundry load number 5 to be complete, I find myself reflecting on how being a mom has completely changed my life.

Not even a year ago I was working 3 part time jobs and going to school full time, but I still didn't feel as busy as I do now being a part time hair stylist and FULL time mommy. No wonder why time goes by so fast once you have kids. Your only time to breath is during nap time, and even then my time is filled with loads upon loads of laundry, cleaning the house, and preparing meals. It's a never ending feat.

Even though it sounds pretty dreary sometimes, and it can be a bit monotonous taking care of the same things day in and day out; I wouldn't change my life for anything in the world. My son is the most important thing in the world to me and I couldn't imagine my life without his sweet giggles. Giving birth to him has been the greatest accomplishment of my life thus far. It's pretty hard for me to even remember my life before him and it's only been nearly 9 months since he joined our family.

So what is my point of writing all of this? Well, for one I just needed to remind myself that everything that I do on a daily basis is not for nothing. A two, to remind all mommies out there that what we do is the most important job in the world. Think about it, our job as mommy did not start the day our sons and daughters were born. It started the moment we found out that we were pregnant, and for some even prior to that. We have given our bodies, our hearts, our minds, our sleep, everything that we are and everything that we have to mold and make our little babies into wonderful, caring, creative, smart, loving, strong, sensitive (the list goes on and on) individuals. They are our greatest creation and our job is an amazing one. God bless all of the mommies out there and remember that what you do is priceless.
