Motherhood

Dirty pampers.  Waking up at all hours to feed.

Stressful days.  Fitful sleep.  The need for adult

conversation.  Relief when Dad comes home and

takes over.  You have time for yourself now.  You

savor the moment.  You get to do what you want to do.

 

But you don’t want her to grow up too fast.  You savor

those times when you can hold her in your arms,

breathing in that baby scent, listen to her coos and

gurgling.  Feel her little head rest against you shoulder.

You savor those moments when she looks up at you

with those big, trusting eyes.  And you enjoy bathing

her, laughing as she splashes the water, wetting you.

And those moments when you bonded as you breastfed her.

 

Savor every moment you have with your precious little

one.  One of these days she will grow up and all you

will have are memories.  She will marry and have

her own family.  And then she too will experience the

joys of motherhood.

    • Yes, I can imagine that sending your daughter off to college will be hard. Our children grow up so quickly. One minute they are in pampers and the next they are off to college! Where do the years go? That’s why it is so important to savor every moment with them. When they still want to hug you and spend time with you, count your blessings because that will change as they get older.

    • It’s funny how you imagine your children growing up, the kind of future you would like them to have and hoping to see them get married and settle down but at the same time you don’t want them to grow up in a hurry. Lots of mothers wish their children would remain babies or toddlers for just a while longer. My son is nine years old. I can’t believe how time has flown. Sometimes I miss the baby and toddler years. I cherish the moments when he snuggles up to me as I read to him and rests his head on my shoulder. He likes to spend time with me and there are times when I miss out because I am busy blogging!
