A Few Ramblings from "Rambling Momma"

HI there, 
I am here today from Rambling Momma, I would love to have you visit me anytime. 
Seeing as Mother's day has just passed, I wanted to write a post about my thoughts on being a mom... 

Being a mom is tough
Being a working mom is tough
Being a stay at home mom is tough

Being a MOM is tough

When I was first married, I couldn't wait to get pregnant to become a mom, to have that beautiful face look up at me and give me a little smile, a giggle and a coo, then there were days when I had no idea what you needed me to do, you cried and screamed, there was no consoling you ... 

Motherhood is a major learning curve. One minute you're pregnant and the next you're a feeding, swaddling, diapering, soothing machine, an instant expert in basic infant first aid and the art of latching a five-point harness. At the same time, you're way out of your depth, struggling to navigate a stormy sea of new emotions that are unique to moms — from exhilarating pride to nail-biting frustration. Mastering the bottle is one thing; it's much more complicated to finesse the emotional hurdles of motherhood, especially when they morph and mutate as your baby reaches each new milestone.

There is no course in school that will teach us all we need to learn and do, they say it will just come when you become a mom, well who ever they are, I'm sorry, but there were many things that I had no idea what I was doing, many times I wanted to scream and give the baby to hubby and leave the house..
but I am a Mom
I stayed
I dealt with it
I listened to the cries
I changed the diapers
I fed her one more time
because she is a part of me, a part of me that I never thought I could love as much as I do, a part of me so much that I would do anything for this child, she means everything to me.

Here she is 10 and a beautiful young lady who loves life and completes our family. So Momma's, it will get better, I promise!

Now she is 11 and she is the light of my life, and every day gets better and better.
