Favorite Things About Being a Mom

I am sometimes asked how is it being a young mother, my answer is, it has its ups and downs. I gave birth to my son at the age of 19. I was in labor at the time when there was a tornado in the town 15 minutes away from me. I was in labor all day that day on April 28th. On April 29th 2014 at 1:30 p.m. I finally gave birth to my 6 pounds and 2 ounce baby boy. He was so tiny I was scared to hold him. He measured 17 and a half inches long. I could not believe that I was someone’s mother. I was the type of person to always say that I was never going to have children because I didn’t like them. All of that changed when I had my son. The first couple of months were really rough; he didn’t sleep well at night and neither did I. When he cried I cried, it was just rough. I found that I had became depressed but I never told anyone about it. I had thoughts of running away and taking my own life because things were not going how I pictured it to go and from being stressed and depressed. Things soon started to ease up and things got better. I took pictures of my son every single day; I even changed his outfits throughout the day just to take a pictures son was steady growing and I wanted to capture every minute of it. Memories do last a lifetime so it was important for me to capture as much as I could. There were times when I did not look or feel my best but my son was happy and looked great. No matter how down I felt or how bad I felt or looked my son’s love and his presence reassured me that everything was okay. I was on the edge of losing my mind but I knew I couldn’t because of my son. Things got better over time and I learned to embrace every moment of it. He is now 3 and he has so much energy and he’s sooo smart! We do everything together; we play, eat at his favorite restaurants, paint, sing, everything! My favorite part about being a mom is watching him grow. I watch him grow into an intelligent, loving little boy. He tells me he loves me so even when I feel like no one else does I know that he do. I love to see him experiment and explore things. He says some of the craziest and funniest things that make me laugh. That’s another one of my favorite things about being a mom. There are many things that make me love being a mom. My son is my world, he is what keeps me going. No matter how tore up I am he accepts me and loves me. He sees me as super mom even when I’m not my best. Mommin’ ain’t easy but I make the best of it. I wouldn’t trade him or being a mom for nothing in the world! What are your favorite things about being a mom?

  1. This is so touching! Being a mother at a young age is hard, I totally get where you're coming from! The great part is, you've gotten through your difficult moments and life seems so much better now. Continue to do what makes you happy!

  2. I can relate to your post all too well! Times may get hard but the joy of it all is the smile we see on our child's face. Keep pushing Mama. <3

  3. Nobody warns you how hard it can be. Especially if you were really young. I've got two but I was 30 when I had my first. And you still miss the sleep at 30 πŸ˜‰
