Motherhood,  Ramblings of a mother

My first blog post

I had decided a couple months ago to start a blog. After giving it some thought, I decided to start this motherhood blog. I have thought a lot about what to write about and decided that it would be a good start to write about what motherhood is really like for me. It may not be everything, it may not include my every emotion but it’s just a little about the way I feel.

Motherhood has changed me in many ways, it has taught me how to be brave and strong for my kids as well as brave and strong as a woman, it has taught me how to be extremely tolerant, it has taught me how to remember everything important without a checklist,it has taught me how to get a million things done at one time and still keep the kids happy,it has made me grow in so many ways and see things so very differently.

Motherhood is really:

    Repeating something ten times, then eventually getting up and intervening
    Never getting to sit in peace for 5 minutes
    Never getting to eat in peace
    Never getting to use the toilet without rushing to avoid some untold disaster
    Becoming a qualified home safety officer
    Continually making food
    Continually filling feeding cups
    Cleaning up the same place ten times and eventually giving up
    Being able to know what your kids ate with your nose (yes, dirty diapers say it all)
    Becoming a stealth expert due to a sleeping baby time bomb that you don’t want to explode
    Functioning on the least amount of sleep humanly possible
    Having the fastest shower in the world
    Shaving only when your armpit hair is long enough to braid (I’m joking, but you know what I mean)
    Having endless nonsensical conversations throughout the day
    Singing strange songs
    Making weird noises
    Decrypting the baby language and facial expressions of your child
    Getting beaten up by your co sleeping child
    Never getting to enjoy your sleep
    Endless anxiety
    Never getting space in the bed
    Acting silly, crazy, stupid
    And so many other things

But despite all these things, there is something about motherhood, that makes it all worth it. I can’t tell you whether it’s the cuddles, or snuggles or that look in your child’s eyes that tell you, you’re all they know, all they care about, all that they can trust. It tells you that you are their safe haven, you are their home and their whole world revolves around you.

Maybe it’s the way your whole world lights up the moment, you see your child hit their first milestones like starting to crawl or saying their first word. Maybe its the amount of love you feel when they hold on to you tightly, or they give you a kiss or they fall asleep in your arms. Maybe its that feeling of belonging you get when they call out to you or they look to you when they get hurt or feel sad. Maybe its that feeling you felt when you gave birth to your baby after nursing them in your womb for so many months. Maybe its that feeling of immense pride and joy that you feel when they have learnt something that you have just taught them.

Or maybe, its something divine, something straight from heaven.

Happy Monday everyone and mums, you’re doing a great job. You are the best!
