Before she was even born. It really sunk in once I could see and feel her moving inside of me. One day (in my 3rd trimester), I was very emotional and she was moving alot. I started crying out of joy and told her that I loved her and that I was so happy she was in my life and that I waited a long time for her.
Well... seeing his 3 month ultrasound made me kind of flip out and feel protective and loving towards the little creature inside of me.
But, when he was born, about a minute afterwards I was holding him and checking him over and it started to hit me, how damn amazing he was.
Then it was probably the next night when the shock wore off an all the hormones of intense love and protection were still raging when I was like DAMN I LOVE THIS THING IN MY ARMS lolol

When she was about nine months, she woke up from her nap and she was crying and I picked her up and said, "mamas got you", and she wrapped her little arms tight around my neck and BAM I fell in love with her. What can I say some moms are late bloomers. Before she I cared for her and loved her as I ought to, but at that moment that is when I fell in love with her.
ds- when he was born
dd-when i found out i was pregnant
this might make me sound weird, but when i was just a child myself. i was maybe five, and my dad told me that one day, i'll be a mom. i'd never thought of it before, but the idea so captivated me, and i yearned for it. ever since then, every lesson i've learned, every activity i've done, every goal i've set was to make me a better mom. the idea that one day, i'll be teaching my children to love, to grow, to find happiness kept me going when times were tough.
when i dated, i looked for a guy who would be a great dad. and now that they are here, it is every bit of fun as i'd hoped. i absolutely love motherhood, and all the challenges it brings. i hope that all my preparation pays off.
haha, this makes me sound like i am nothing without my kids. i think they've enriched my life, but they're not my whole life. they're just the absolute best part of it.
