What are some of your experiences with being a mom that you never had to experience before (good/bad)? Do you enjoy motherhood? Why or why not?

my daughter save my life cause after I had her I was in depression really bad. I took pills and was in the hospital. I stop my pills cause they made me forget I left the stove on and my house was fine. so I fought the depression till feb of 2012 when on my way to work with my daughter in the car. I was going to switch baby with dad cause we work at the same place. I saw ice on the road and I slow down. that was not enough I hit it just right and I don't remember the rest. My body shut down and went into shock. I heard I hit another car and roll the car twice. my daughter had to scares and I look like i hit the wall. I believe that was suppose to happen so my depression would walk away after the crash. I don't worry anymore, I play with her more, and now since she is in early on and early headstart I want to teach her more like the teachers are helping us. she is little behind and hoping the get her hearing figure out soon. she hears music, but won't come to her name unless you made noise. I love her even more than ever. just having hard time accept she is special needs just like her mom is. my is learning disabilities and my daughter might be hearing impairment but we are not sure yet. so it is tough, but I try not to get so frutrastion.

I absolutely love being a mother to my two kids! I worked with kids for many years before I had them, so I knew what I was getting into. I had my home preschool for 5 years before my son was even born! I was 31 when I had my son, and 33 when I had my daughter. I am a lot more patient than I was when I was younger, and I'm better able to provide for them financially that when I was younger. I truly enjoy experiencing new things with them, showing them new places, and teaching them right from wrong.

I am so proud when they get good grades, do their best in sports, and when their good behavior is pointed out by teachers and friends. They are 11 and 8 now, and really are developing their own personailities, their own opinions. I do prefer the opinions that agree with mine, but I'm learning to accept that they don't always agree with me - sigh.

There is nothing in the world better than a hug from my kids!!!!

The thing I love most about being a mom is watching my kids become unique little people. I feel so proud when they make a good choice for themselves or achieve a goal they were after. The harder side of being a mom has been things like temper tantrums from my son, snarky drama queen stuff from my daughter from time to time, etc. But life can't always be perfect and I take the bad with the good. Overall, my kids are nice little people and I feel like a million bucks to be able to call them mine ♥

I love being a mother!!!! It is crazy how my daughter does sooo many of the same things that even makes me chuckle or feel that i have been granted another chance at my youth.

One of my favorite moments was one windy day my daughter grabbed my hand and told me to hold on to her while she puts her gravity on before she flys away.....Once i learned about science (I was about 6--way older) i would do the same thing to my mom =)
