Oh Yes!! I’m a Mother of one beautiful human. Awwww! I I know right? So straight to my post about the day my life changed from a being girl to a mother. On the 1st of March, 2008, I had gone into labor not knowing what to expect, not knowing if I was up to the task or not. I had carried this little human in my belly for 10 months, in fact my labor was induced because lil man was too comfortable in my womb and wasn’t bothered but since nature was delaying, science had to do the work thus having me induced.
Guys the pain was crazy, super crazy; that the best way I can explain it is that, you feel every kind of discomfort you can ever think of at the same time. I felt like pooing, peeing and throwing up at the same time (don’t laugh), ok you can laugh because I laugh about it every time I think about it now . To cut the long story short, after Caesarean section; I woke up in the early morning of 2nd March, 2008, memory a bit blank from anesthesia, then boom : ” My Baby! Where is My Baby ? ” I asked the nurse after I remembered why exactly I was at the hospital. From the moment I laid eyes on the tiny human who weighed exactly 2.5 kg ( perfect size wanted because I didn’t want any vaginal tears nor an underweight child , my diet was strict but healthy), tears rolled down my cheek and that moment I knew my life had changed forever and that I could this. I went through the breastfeeding process for a year (don’t worry, my boobs are still good, not pointing down south yet ) : 6 months of exclusive breastfeeding, then 6 months of mixed feeding. He was my best friend, I had one of those happy experiences: he never cried in the middle of the night, I braided his hair, played dress up with him and fed him right.
Becoming a mother made me a bit more vigilant, I gradually grew into a “MAMA BEAR”, would cross all the obstacles to see my child was safe , healthy and happy. It changed the way I viewed the world, because I’am not living for just me but for someone else too.
Today my son is 10 years old and only if he you knew the hurdles and sacrifices I had to make as a mother to give him the best of everything, just like we never know what our mothers have to go through to see us through.
If your mother is alive treat her well, call her sometimes just to say you love her. Show her love more than expected. On this day I want to say Happy Mothers Day to all Mothers and Mothers to be. The experience is beautiful.
