Motherhood so far....

I have written so much about love and marriage and relationships but it seems I am leaving out a HUGE part of my life...my heart...my being....MY SON!. Aaaah when I think of my son,my eyes well up ( like right now....) and I can't help but fall in love again, LOL...don't mind me! I LOVE being a mother...it is one of the top 3 reasons God made me. So in honor of my son...my love... here is a list of 5 things being a momsie has taught me...

1-MOTHERHOOD IS DA BOMB!
Explosion of positive energy

I can't explain the joy I've felt being a mother. It's like there was a secret compartment of my heart that was unlocked with the birth of my son. I love the tiredness, extra work, responsibility and busyness of motherhood.

2-YOUR HUBBY MATTERS....

The second Baby boy came out of me; it was ALL about him. I lived him... breathed him...and hubby some how ended up on the back burner. HOOOOOOOLLLLLLLD UPPPPPPP! Unless there was some kind of immaculate conception X2; I wouldn't be able to have baby boy! I have now realized that Hubby still matters. Even though I am tempted to pull a "Super woman" every time my son is in need... I now see that baby boy deserves/needs/demands a fully capable and involved daddy

3-IT CAN MAKE OR BREAK A RELATIONSHIP

Divorce

Motherhood is not a joke! The arrival of a child can be the glue that makes your relationship tighter or the wrecking ball that breaks it apart. I have heard of women who think they can make a man stay/love them/act right by getting pregnant. Absolutely not! Parenthood is such work that unless both hubby and wifey both willingly make the baby; it could rip them apart. Please ladies never EVER use a baby as anything but a baby...


4-IT IS NOT AN EXCUSE TO LET YOURSELF GO

I have mentioned this in a previous post, I have always dreaded becoming those women who have one baby and automatically switch to wearing bubu`s and wrappers constantly in the house. Motherhood is not an excuse to let yourself go; but to keep up the sexyness and this can only be done by caring for yourself as much as you care for your baby.


5-I WILL DEFINTELY BE DOING THIS AGAIN!!!!

aww this is so sweet got me thining of fastforwarding my life 6 years...lol number 2 is kinda tricky in the sense that some people just love their baby so much that they almost forget the hubby. I also refuse ro wear wrappers and bubus....

Cheers to motherhood...ENJOY!

I love this post, motherhood sounds like fun and something every woman should look forward to. So you would be having another baby sooner, how cutie, girl you need to give me some tips about love and marriage knowing I hear it's a lot of work and a different phase when couples start living together, stay cutie always.

H: Thanks Girl...it definitely is.

MYSU: I almost fell into that trap, hubby still messes with me because I call baby boy "my husband"...even till now.

YNB: I gotcha! Anytime...anyplace... I'm your girl.







PS: If anyone has any questions; private or otherwise and think I might be able to help...just ask me for my email ( I dont want to randomly put it out there...)

LOL @ "I will definitely be doing this again." *Wink*

That photo of that "mama" is not right at all. May God help us...letting go is not the way. Lol.

I agree, the baby can't be used as a weapon...it's just 'the baby.'

I liked this post :)

Love this! I need to make sure hubby doesn't get left to the back burner too! And as for letting myself go?...well!

I love your blog - been reading for a while but haven't gotten round to commenting.
