Being a momma isn’t easy. It is full of worries for your little one, late nights, early mornings, middle of the night wake up calls, spit up, poop, floaties in the tub, spilled milk, crumbs and messes on the floor, and so much more. Being a mom is hard. Being a mom is something that I dreamed my whole life of being. I yearned to be for so long. It is something that nothing else could replace, not a puppy, cat, fish, or anything. I wanted my own little one for years when we couldn’t get pregnant. Being a mom has taught me that I am stronger than I ever thought I was. I can do really hard things. I can conquer things I never thought was possible. I can take care of a little one when I am deathly sick. I can be a good mom when I have 2 hours of sleep. I can be that person I dreamed of. All of the hard things make being a mom so much better because if I never learned while being a mom or grew as a person, it just wouldn’t be as rewarding. Hard things make the rewards so much better, the growing process, the strength that you find within, and the love that little one has for you just like you have for them.
