On Being a First Time Mom
On Being a First Time Mom
11/14/2018


I decided to go to school to learn about child development. I did not have the best upbringing, and knew when I had children, I wanted to be the best mother I could be. I actually excelled in college and I was now a "Child Development Major". Then I had my first child and I remember how tiny she was and how absolutely beautiful she was and still is! Once they put her in my arms, I knew motherhood was for me, until that first night, trying to breast feed, worrying that she wasn't getting enough, should I supplement... The questions went on and on.

Now she is 26 years old, a mother, and a terrific mother at that! She is still the most beautiful child to me, but of course so are my other two! I am happy to say, I survived, so did they. There were some moments through adolescence I wasn't sure who would survive!!!!  I love my children, they are all very close to one another and to us, so I guess I didn't do too bad after all. I learned with each one, that raising children is a gift, one that I have treasured and continue to treasure.

I am glad I went to school, because it helped me to be a better parent. I realized when raising children, not all the answers are in the text books, they are in your heart, too!
