In preparation to become a Mommy it meant to me that I was willing to set aside all of my selfish habits, share the attention of my husband and basically grow up. It meant giving up my stylish clothes and heels for six months of discomfort, limitations, sickness and simply not feeling like myself.
Now that I have been blessed with the title of Mommy it means that I have volunteered my life and welcomed the responsibility to help and nurture my offspring so that she will have all the tools to be an asset to our society. She is my investment and this is my way of making this world a better place.
On a personal note, to be a Mommy it means that I have learned to listen with my heart when the communication cannot relay on words, I can show that dreams can come true and I will always create time when it seems that there is none to spare.

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren
Without children all you have to show for your life is what you accomplished on your own. Being a mother is the opposite. Being a mother shows what you have accomplished in another being.
Without children you don’t think twice about your actions because the only one hurt is yourself. Being a mother makes you think before you act. If you don’t it isn’t you who will only be affected, but your child as well.
These things may deter those from ever becoming a mother. Those who choose to be a mother, and I mean a true mother, sees these things as a blessing. We are the ones who mold these precious gifts into what they will become as adults. Either we hold onto these precious beings and give them wings, or we crack a bit of their fragility each day.
Being a mother is the greatest gift I was given, and I do not take this “job” lightly. I may have nights where I am so tired I can’t see straight. I may have days where I want to pull out my hair with all the messes that have been made. Some days I may want the day to end, but each morning I wake up excited I get to be their mom and do it all over again!
These girls are my life and I am here to make sure they get the most out of theirs!
