She will get her ears pierced when she comes up to me and says, "Mommy, I want my ears pierced." :-)

I am really happy to have my daughter. During the pregnancy, I was anxious thinking I might not be able to love her as much as I should. I'm a not a great fan of children and neither they of me. I felt like I got baby blue sindrom even before the baby was born. But things turned differently when she was put on my chest and I held her for the first time. My favourite time is breastfeeding. It gave me the nicest feeling I've ever had. If people said breastfeeding reduces stress, it's really true for me. During the first 3 weeks I was so stressed out. And nursing my baby calmed me so much. I really missed the moment as I don't nurse anymore (the supply just run out one day, don't know why). Having a baby also encourages me to learn many things, to be more independent and to be patient and disciplined. My baby gives me reasons to live my life fully.

I really feel great attached like they are a huge part of me, the 2 best parts of me that I would never know what to do with out them. It makes me ache for those parents who lose there babies and children I do not know how they survive they are incredible women and there are way to many families who have lost. I miss my kids at night when they are in bed I just go in there to watch them or lots of times lately my daughter goes to bed I clean up get things done make a fort out of furniture and blankets and I woke her up and told her I had a surprise the way she said thanks mom its my favorite surprise all 4 of us ended up sleeping there by morning. I admit I can get stressed throughout the day but at the end of the day none of that matters they are innocent brilliant children and deserve all the love you can give.

When my daughter was born and put on my chest she promptly grabbed my finger, looked me in the eye and latched onto the breast for her first feed. Seriously. I remember in that moment thinking "she's been here before" :) She's a wise little miss with a strong personality and very good set of lungs, who has at times pushed me to a point where I wonder how I'm going to cope. But I never question why I had her. You expect to love your child, but the vulnerability that goes with that love is overwhelming. The prospect of raising her well and keeping her safe often keeps me awake at night because it is now the ONLY thing that matters to me. I'm a single mum and I can honestly say that I don't need anyone other than my daughter. She IS the love of my life. Nothing will ever compare to that.

i love my son,he is my world! the day i had him i was the happiest woman in the world.when i bought him home,me being a single mom with no one to help,after 6 days i was going crazy and literally wanted to turn him into chilli..i couldn't get anything done and he was up crying and eating every hour on the hour..i called my doctor the next day and went to see him right away.i got to talk to other moms(nurses) and they informed me that what i was feeling was normal and that relieved me to know that i wasn't alone and wasn't a bad mother.i enrolled in infant massage classes and any baby class i could attend,now i am more confident as a parent and i know my son appreciates it.most mothers don't discuss what they really go through because they don't want to be viewed in a bad way.i know it helped me to talk to someone.i love being a mom and i feel it gives me a purpose in life.i don't feel bad sharing my story and if it helps just one person that would be great.just know you are not alone when you feel overwhelmed and you should contact someone right away.

so so happy to have someone that depends on me for everything and happy to have the unconditional love, and just happy to be a mother and have a family because its all ive ever dreamed of and something that people take for granted the ones that fall pregnant so easily. For others when it happens its such a miracle and the most amazing thing in the world.

well.....i love him more than anything and would never want to be without him......that being said, i know that sometimes i just need some me time, when i am having a bad day and he is being crabby and noting i do makes him feel better, thats when i wish that his dad was around to help out, but hes not, but we always get through those days and at the end of the day he can still make me smile.....i don't know where i would be if i had not got pregnant with him, me being prego made me strighten my life out and get on the right path and who knows where or what i would be if he hadn't have come along.....i just thank god for giving him to me, i had 2 miscarriages and was into some bad things after the second one, and enjoy all the time i get to spend with him and thank him for changing my life for the better, it is harded sometimes but its worth it......

That is a heavy question, but that answer really is easy. I love my little boy more than anything in the world. At times he does drive me crazy and I wanna pull my hair out......but at the end of the day everyday, I love him so much and cannot imagine my life without him. We had great bonding time from the beginning and he is for the most part a great baby, they do have their little moments and all.....but children are great and he completes me and my life is more ways than I thought could ever be imaginable.

hmm..thats a loaded question...lol! not really, of course i love them all! my biggest problem is new mums not feeling like they can talk about the less than great aspects of ....well, being a new mum i guess. those feelings sometimes do not come straight away for everyone and it ticks me off that sometimes mums are made to feel bad for that....i have been really lucky that my bubs have all been fairly good with sleeping and stuff like that (with the exception of one who was a bit too early) but haven't had anything major happen to interfere with the whole bonding thing but some women aren't that lucky and have such big expectations of the whole thing that the reality doesn't always match up to, you know? i am due at the end of july and can't wait to meet him...i guess its different for everyone but at the end of the day, can't imagine my life without any of my kids and feel they have taught me so much more than i could ever teach them...
