Trials of Being a Mother

I love being a mom. The anticipation you feel when your awaiting their arrival. The joy you feel once they are finally here. Seeing that first real smile, their first tooth, thier first crawl, first step. Everyday they say or do something new that makes you proud to be blessed in having them. You cannot imagine your life without them.

Then there are those days and times when you just want to scream and runaway They drive you nuts and make you want to pull your hair out. Somedays you envy those without kids or try to imagine the life you had before they came along.



It's funny, but I remember when I was pregnant with Ernest and being on every mother related message board available first time moms always thought we experienced moms were wrong. They spoke how they just couldn't imagine leaving their children even for a few seconds for alone time. The minute they had their babies they complained about not having that time alone.

My youngest boys are a joy most of the time, but many times I wish I could be just Kassia. No child for just a moment of time. Even 5 minutes of going to the bathroom without someone banging on the door would be nice. Or 30 minutes without hearing "Mom! He hit me" every minute would be paradise. Let's not forget being able to have a full nights sleep.


It's all the trials of being a mother. Or just a parent. Wouldn't change it for the world. LOL!!
