For me, Being a mother is the best thing thats ever happened to me!!! I love my Husband and am thankful for him because My boys wouldn't be here, but My Boys are my everything. To know that these little angels of earth are depending on you to Love, Care, and teach them is s amazing. I don't have anyting against women who don't want children, but I feel bad for the fact that they will never be able to feel the feeling most mothers feel. I say most because we have to be realistic, their are mothers ot there that had kids to just have them, and nver stood up. You know the ones whos children are gang bangers, and drug dealers because they missed out on their mother!!!

Its a Blessing!!! It takes a lot of patience when they are small. But as long as you give them the love they need, they'll be okay and so will you. Its all worth it. Having the power to give a little individual life is extraordinary, and you just have to be ready to embrace it with your heart.

Couldn't have said it better Trinetta. And being that I've lost two of mine.. one which I actually got to bury.. I worship my children. Knowing how it feels to lose one sure makes ya appreciate what ya have and what ya feel if you are lucky enough to have had any at all. God says don't store up treasures for yourself here on earth.. but what about the ones HE gives you?? lol Cause he sure has imparted great treasure to me which I plan to build on and build on. I love my kids!!

Nothing in the world will compair to being a mom. When you become pregnant life isnt about YOU anymore...that can be scary. but when you hold your baby for the first time nothing eles exists. I cant tell you how it feels to be a mom because no words can describe it. Unconditional love and selfllessness are ACTIONS that you will have for the rest of your life when it comes to your baby (s)!!!! Good luck and enjoy they grow up sooooooo fast :)

Being a mother, to me, is truly the most amazing experience and privilege that I've been offered in my life. I had my son when I was 22 and he'll be 4 at the end of April. The time goes by so fast, especially when you want to see the next best thing with your child develop. I remember when my son first started pulling himself up on furniture and I could not wait for him to start walking. As soon as he did, I realized, wow, what am I rushing all of these things for? They only come once and when they do, they're gone just as fast as they came. Being a mother has made me the best version of myself that I could ever want to be. I never knew love like this even existed until my son was born. Everyone talks about it, but you never fully understand the depth of it until it's your own child you're feeling this love for. Nothing in this world could surpass motherhood. Motherhood is utopia, even with all the tired days, hard work and and everything else that a loving mother puts into her children.

After I had my daughter i can't imagine doing anything else. I feel like this is what i'm suppose to be. I love watching her do new things but secretly it breaks my heart cuz i know she is growing up. My daughter has brought out a new side of me I didn't even know was there. All the emotions i feel (good ones) that i have never felt before i use to not cry that often or really at all but i find myself tearing up and sometime just plain out cry like a little girl just cuz she holds her bottle by herself or she sits up she cut her first tooth today and guess what i cried over that too. We took her to get her Christmas pics done and she did so good that once again caused me to cry just bcuz i love to see this wonderful person she is becoming i have never in my whole life felt so loved and needed as I do now and i LOVE every minute of it! I am so happy and i am loving life more and more everyday gosh i'm tearing up now just thinking about all of with my baby i don't know what i would have done and I would not change a minute of the late nights the lovely surprises she leaves me. I truely believe this is what i was always mean't to be!!

When my girls were little they gave me lots of joy. Now that they are 15 and 22 I am proud of them for the women they become and what they have accomplish in school . Their love for others and selflessness and mostly how they love the Lord.

I love being a mother. I feel that I grew up awfully fast when my parents divorced. I felt like I needed to "be good" to make my parents proud of me. I was the older sister and felt I should "take care" of my younger brother. Having children has allowed me to go back and do it all over again and this time I aim to DO IT UP RIGHT!!!!! I laugh when my kids are happy. I love to see the games they make up. I enjoy watching them do RIDICULOUS things just cuz they thought it up and want to try it, I love the way my kids make a game of EVERYTHING, their imaginations floor me, they think to do things that I as an adult (or even a child) would never have dreamed of. I enjoy seeing the world thru my kids' eyes. I wish for them to feel like Peter Pan and never to grow up (it's highly overrated anyway). They drive me crazy daily *and that should be their only job* Esp. over this holiday season I have encouraged my kids to do things I don't normally "allow" they played out in the snow after dark, have stayed up late to watch Christmas specials on TV, baked tons of cookies, made a mess (and somewhere in the process a gingerbread house emerged), I think esp. at the holidays, kids should get to BE KIDS!!!! and if a few life lessons are born along the way FANTASTIC. (i had my daughter make a mess with glitter (during which Christmas ornaments were born) and she gave them to her friends at school, with the life lesson of giving is much more fun than receiving) I'm so grateful every day for the innumerable moments I get to "do over" as an adult that sometimes I feel I missed as a child. YAY!!!!

I LOVE it! I was never truly happy till I became a mother. I felt like a part of me was missing until I had my son. I love that little boy more than life itself. He just turned one and is starting to stand up by himself and it's so exciting to watch him grow and learn new things everyday. I'm so thankful I'm able to stay home with him so I don't miss a minute!

I absolutely LOVE being a mother! It's one of the most amazing feelings in the world. My daughter is my bright spot in the day...just seeing her smiling this HUGE smile when I get her up in the just warms my heart. I thought I had known love, but I had completely forgotten about the unconditional love that children give out so readily. I can't wait to see her grow in a beautiful woman, but I know I will cherish every moment, every smile, every skinned knee along the way. It really reminds me of the song, I forget the singer, but it's called "In My Daughter's Eyes"...that really hits home for me.

Its sometimes thankless, payless, tireless, and one big headache, but the minute they are out of the door off into the world, the worries kick in and you can't help but think about how they are... You watch them when they are asleep, watch them when they are awake, you know what they are doing even though they are trying to hide it from you thinking they can't be seen. Every little step is on a path that you have trodden before and watching them on this path brings back many memories of being a child, you can't help but smile. I heard a funny thing the other day of a grandfather who dislocated his shoulder by jumping on the bed with his grandson. One of those moments of trying to reclaim the innocents of youth. Being a mother is a job for those who want more for those they love then themselves. I wouldn't change a thing about it.
