I always wanted kids so that I could give them the loving family I always wanted. I didnt grow up with a bad family but it always felt distant to me and I always felt alone. I want to have a close relationship with my kids and have them feel they can always come to me no matter what the problem. I love being a mother. There is no feeling that compares to having your child light up when they see you. I love the warm feeling I get from just seeing them smile. My life wouldn't be complete if I wasn't a mom. It means everything to me and that role has become the one that matters most in my life. Being a mother means knowing what each cry means, kissing boo-boos, wiping tears and making everything better for your child. It means knowing whats best and when to draw the line. It means showing them the way as well as you can and when they've grown up, trusting their decisions. I will always be there for my children. I think that love and guidance are 2 of the most important things in being a mom. And I will always love them and be there to guide them. Thats what being a mom means to me.
