This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is Find. Here I go…
Becoming a mom teaches you a lot of things. Here are some things you find out when you become a mom:
- Your body is beautiful and amazing. A lot of women struggle with finding their bodies beautiful, even those we might see as most beautiful. When I got pregnant I suddenly became aware of how awesome my body is. The way our bodies are created to make this little life and nourish it, even after birth, is quite amazing and beautiful.
- Binkies are like socks. I am convinced that binkies and that one sock that never made it out of the dryer are in a room together having a good laugh. Seriously, where did all the binkies go?
- You will do anything to make your child happy. I will sing, dance, make fart noises, jump up and down, give him 50 baths a day, shove a binky in his mouth (did I just say that?)… I will do anything to make my son happy. And, it’s not to keep him quiet. It’s to keep him happy. I love him more than anything in this world. I never want him to be sad. Ever. I often look at him and think, “I never want you to hurt”. Which leads me to the last thing you find out when you become a mom…
- You have more love in you than you thought. I loved a lot of people before I had my son but nothing could have ever prepared me for the love I feel for my son. It is truly an overwhelming love.
These are just a few things I found out after becoming a mom. What did you find?
