Mother's Day is coming up very soon and it seems like a lot of blogs are having awesome parties!
Notes From My Nest is having a huge blog bash to celebrate Mother's Day! To play along, I'm going to share what I've learned about Motherhood.
I didn't know what kind of mom I would be until my daughter was born. I was frightened about how I could be a good mom. I soon figured out that motherhood comes naturally to most of us... including myself. My daughter was born and I did what came naturally, I nursed her. It was so wonderful... the bond. It is indescribable. It still makes me cry sometimes. Co-sleeping also came naturally. It made sense to us. My daughter hated her crib. She only slept in our arms. The bed worked for us. That was something I never thought I would do! I also carried her everywhere. She literally didn't nap in her crib or bassinet or couch (anywhere besides my arms) until she was 6 months old. I loved to hold her and keep her close to me. I wanted her close. I still do. I sometimes joke to myself that I'm an Attached Parent by accident... I don't like to associate myself that way, though. I just do what is natural to me. It doesn't work for all. Sometimes I find myself checking if she's breathing to this day. She is the most precious and amazing little person... I couldn't imagine not being a mother. I can't remember what I did before motherhood. How did I spend my day? What would fill the void that my daughter fills now? That void must've existed before her, right? She is my blessing. I am so blessed to be a mother. I couldn't imagine it any other way!
