Motherhood, for us this is a familiar word. But years ago, I only thought it was just a ten letter word with a very disgusting meaning.
Back when I was still single and a bit younger, I used to hate kids. They’re so messy and hard to handle. I can still recall my Co associates at work say things about their children all the time and for me it’s quite boring, I hate when they talk about it, it seems like their world is revolving only on their children, and I can’t relate even to a single word about it.
I can’t even stand holding a baby in my arms. It feels like it’s getting heavier as minutes pass by. I get annoyed hearing babies cry, It really freaks the hell out of me. I detest all baby stuffs not until my daughter Reese came.
It was a difficult pregnancy. I have to take a long leave from work because of severe morning sickness. So severe that I can’t even stand my way to the bathroom because I get dizzy all the time. I throw up a lot, I can’t put anything in my mouth because after a while I’ll just throw it all back. I just keep myself hydrated my drinking milk which I thanked God it’s the only thing that my system allows to take in. But even though I went through hard times, having those nausea and vomiting really excites me, because I know she’s there and I’m going to have her very soon. And when she came, It changed my life. Big time!!
Now, thing’s changed. I love children, I love the noise and the screams, the mess that they do, cute photos and everything about them. It seems like this world will never be complete without them around. Motherhood took me to an experience I never thought possible. I became more caring, loving and even more emotional. Did you know that I always cry each time I see an abandoned or abused child on the news?
And even when I see babies, It felt so different back then, now I love carrying and feeling them in my arms. For me it’s so precious. Their smiles and giggles melts my heart, their laughter is music to my ears.
Motherhood changed my prospective in life. It made me a better and more mature person. Now, I can say it’s not just a ten letter word. It’s a gift, happiness. So divine and fulfilling.
