And for the sake of being thorough I will share it exactly the way I posted it LOL :D Best insight I have for new or first time Moms. I hope you like it!!
Something on my mind tonight I want to share....growing up I was given all kinds of advice, pointers if you will about how hard raising children were. I heard "Pregnancy is horrible" "Birth is the worst" "Wait until your up every hour feeding a teething infant" "No you just wait for those terrible twos" "Oh no trust me its the three's that are the worst" "Girl you just wait until they are teenagers!" Obviously I can't speak on the last quote but I have to be honest, Pregnancy was amazing. I created and carried life. Birth was unexplainable because I brought life into this world, pure and amazing! I loved every minute of nursing my infants and holding them through the night. Watching them walk, and speak for the first time was remarkable. Seeing their personalities grow and them learn all these knew things through trial and error and YES discipline.Has it always peaceful and simple. NO, but in my opinion these steps of life were easy. What no one told me, what no one explained when I talked about wanting to become a mother, what no one was honest about was what I believe to be the truly hard part of parenting. Wanting what is best for your child. Nothing is more difficult then wanting to give your child the best, then stressing over what you may be doing wrong as a parent, how you may ultimately screw your child up. That is the hardest part of being a parent. EVERYDAY a new fear comes to mind....its not how horrible will Laylah be when she turns 3, its OH MY GOODNES how can I make sure she is the healthiest smartiest sweetiest little girl possible. How can I be sure she knows she is loved? How can I make sure that she is safe! I dont think, what will I do with Xavier and Malachi when they turn into teenagers, I think how can I make sure they grow into the godly young men I want them to be? How can I make sure they build confidence in themselves? How can I make sure they knows how special they are? Nothing has been harder as a parent then wanting to be the best for them, do the best for them, make the best decisions for them? And nothing is hard then worrying that I as a parent will make mistakes and trusting that no matter those mistakes they no that I love them, and God loves them!! Pregnancy is easy, Birth is a piece of cake, twos and threes...Ha thats nothing. Ask me again during those teenage years but I truly believe the hardest part is worrying and wanting the best for your children!!! That is my book for the night. It was on my mind and I wanted to share. God Bless and Good night!
Sorry for the misprints....newest concern..."HOW am I going to teach my children to spell when I can't do so myself!" HAHA
