How has Motherhood Changed Me?

Motherhood has made me understand more, what many women don’t until they have kids of their own.  Women can be so judgmental of others at times. Please, don’t act like you haven’t!  You can’t judge someone until you have been in the situation and even then everyone is different.

My perspective on life has changed. Life is too short and you have to try and enjoy every day. (Even when you have a hard day) My priorities and what’s important in my life have definitely changed. My husband and children are my world. I would much rather have my family and be poor than have fame any day. I would of course prefer not to be poor. 🙂 For some reason I always dreamed of being rich and famous. I have learned that no matter how much money your have it will truly mean nothing if you aren’t truly happy inside first.
I am learning to be more patient, especially having a 4 ½ year old who is very strong willed and persistent.  I also realized I have to stop, take a step back, and look at situations that come my way. Sometimes we forget our children are in fact children and sometimes our expectations are a bit too high.  This has taught me to try and respond to situations versus react. That still can be a challenge for me, but I am trying really hard to get better.  
Motherhood has definitely shown my own positives and negatives.  I have seen my oldest especially, respond to situations exactly the way I have.  Yes I can reprimand him but I need to stop and take a look at my own actions.  I have asked “Where did you hear or get that from?”  My son will simply say “You Mommy!” Our children learn from us the most.  The good, the bad, and the ugly will in fact show their true colors in ways you may not like. 
I have found out what the true meaning of “unconditional love.” Even when I am at my wits end and want to run far away and hide from the overwhelming chaos.  At the end of the day, no matter what, I still love my children and they love me back.  I would do absolutely anything for them.  The feeling of love that is so deep it makes you tear up over the littlest thing. 
Becoming a mother has definitely tested my relationship with my husband in many ways.  Even though I sometimes, well maybe alot of the time, truly wonder what planet my husband is on (maybe Mars), I have grown to love him even more.
I have seriously become a germaphobe!!!!!
I have most importantly become stronger, more confident, less critical, and more adaptable to change.  I have become a better women overall.

  1. I'm not a mom but my boyfriend has a daughter…so I have an all new insight into what happens when you have a child. It's nothing like actually experiencing it, though.Visiting from SITS!

    It takes a lot of will power to put up with four year olds…they're cute, but SO much work.
