Being "Mommy"

I came across an artice on Baby Center. Things that changed when you became a Mom. Some of them made me laugh and some made me nod in agreement while a few made me tear up. There were quite a few but here are some of my favorites that I find so true for myself that I just had to share :)

The sacrifices you thought you made to have a child no longer seem like sacrifices.

You lose touch with the people in your life whom you should have banished years ago.

You think of someone else 234,836,178,976 times a day.

Your heart breaks much more easily.

Bodily functions are no longer repulsive.

You look at your baby in the mirror instead of yourself.

Your love becomes limitless, a superhuman power.

You'd rather buy a plastic tricycle than those shoes that you've been dying to have.

You realize that you can love a complete stranger.

You find yourself wanting to make this world a better place.

You have become a better person.

You have to quit watching the news because you see every story from a mother's perspective and it breaks your heart. SO SO true. I think of everything from a parents perspective now!

You respect your parents and love them in a new way. ...and I also realize now that my baby pictures, while important to me are SO much more important to my Mom. That was HER babys face that she loved so much in them.
 
 
That's all folks, just a quick post. One day maybe my girl will read this and see these statements to be true for her too. One day a looong time from now ;) and then she will know what she has done for me.
