For some reason I meet pregnant women all the time. I usually interact with these soon to be moms as they are watching my children acting civilized or causing havoc. There is a weird grin they have at times as you can see them wondering how their own child will develop. And then there is the awkward question “What is it like being a mom?”
For me, there is no greater feeling in this entire world. Mothers have a special place in theis world. Only those that have been through the experience can truly understand what I'm about to say. Somewhere during your pregnancy, you transform from being pregnant into a mother. Way before your first contraction, you start to develop a motherly instinct. I don't mean you are what people call “good with kids”. I mean you have started a life long bond with this tiny person growing inside of you.
So what is it like being a mommy? WELL, think back to the very first Christmas that you truly remember feeling like you received the best gift on the planet. Now multiply that experience by the birth of your child, the first time they recognize your voice, the first time they call your name, the first step they take, the first picture drawn just for you, the first time they say they love you, every hug, every kiss, every movie seen together, every book read, the yearly school picture, every time they grow out of their clothes, the first bus ride to school and the first day of school. Remember you had to multiply all those experiences together. That gives you a glimpse of what being a mom is like.
All you have to do is be you, and you will receive everlasting love.
