I think we all know that I have had a run for my money with little King man. I have shared about it a few times. I hit the lowest of lows at some points being his mama. I know he came to our little family knowing exactly what hurt my heart and how to push my buttons and for that I am so grateful. Grateful?! Right… I know. The little stinker has become a little bit “easier” lately and by easier I mean, I don’t have rubber burns down my legs as often from him kicking me, scratches down my face as much, and he doesn’t tell me and scream at me to leave and go far as much. These were literally the things that happened from the moment he opened his little bright blue almond eyes in the morning all the way until he laid his little blonde head down at night to go to bed…it was hard, tears were on the daily, and my heart had never been so broken before. For that I am so grateful. But being a mom is hard.
King came to our little family knowing exactly the ways I needed to grow and be stretched. He knew where my weak points were/are and how to push me as far as he could so I could become stronger, more patient filled, and so much more happiness all together! He has filled our family with more joy than we ever knew existed. Being a mom is hard; I mom hard, so hard and it is the most rewarding thing I could have ever hoped for. There are more giggles, loves, kisses, and genuine true love. I never knew I could love a tiny human so much. Our whole world revolves around one little two year old. We couldn’t love it more.
Being a mom isn’t easy, in fact it is the hardest thing that I have ever done. I look at those hard, trying times and know that I made it through, I was strong (most of the time), learned so many different things, and came out being a better person. Plus I have this little sidekick now, that is my best friend, and I hope that one day I am his too.
