The Joy Of Being A Mother
I gave birth to my first son at the age of 18. Not by accident, and not out of wedlock. It was planned, it was a choice. Many would say that eighteen is way too early to have a baby, that i'm too young to take on the responsibility of being a mother. I never really looked at it that way, I'm not ready? It's alright, no one really is ready for their first child. You may think you're ready, but believe me you're not! It's a learning process, you take it one day at a time, you learn from mistakes, you learn from the heart, you do it all out of love, because that's where babies come from, LOVE. Tears of joy when i finally see my baby for the first time after nine months, priceless! Holding someone so precious in my arms, knowing that every single thing i do from that day on, will be for my kids. I made a decision to be a full-time mom, i want to be with them every single minute, guiding them, watching them grow, being there and watching them learn, i want to be there for them when they need me most, i love being the first person they see when they wake up in the morning, i want them to feel my goodnight kisses right before they fall asleep at night.
I have no regrets in my decisions, because nothing can ever compare to the feeling that while they're growing up surrounded with love, i am also growing up with experience. I love how they call me mommy everytime they want something, i love the way they throw tantrums whenever i pretend that i'm not there, and suddenly beam up when they see me again, i love their little giggles when we play games and i also love how they cry when they need something.My babies deserve the best, and that's what i am trying to give them. Material things? Nah?! I'm giving them the best of my love, and eventhough they're still young, guess what, they know how to give love back in their own little ways. I will never give up this life i'm living for anything, i will never let anything or anyone hurt my sons, and i will do the best that i possibly can to raise them right.
