On Saturday I like to highlight another blogger who has written something informative or inspiring. Today I came across Chrissy’s article on becoming a mom. When did the realization first hit home and how did it feel?
I thought you others might enjoy reading this, too.
That moment you realize you are a Mom!
How to describe that moment? That moment when it hits you, when it all comes down like a ton of bricks and reality steps right in your face – You’re a Mom, a Mother, the one trusted source of information about vomit, diarrhea, diaper rash & common illnesses.
Not during pregnancy, although many women experience revelation then, but when that young one is in your arms. That’s when it’s real. That moment when the mental connection is made. I’ve heard some say it was in the hospital it hit them, but not for me. Oh no, it was after I got home. Suddenly, I realized how helpful the hospital staff had been during the first couple of days. They didn’t come home with me. There was no help really!
Nothing prepares you for it – not books, movies, seminars, or pregnancy classes. Nope, no stories…
