8 years and 79 days ago....

I became a mom.

I'm not sure anything or anyone can ever really prepare you for being a mom.
It seems like such a cliche' but, I believe it to be completely and
undeniably true. You can read all the books you can get your hands on,
take every parenting class known to man and question every mom you
know, but, until you hold that baby in your arms the true meaning of
being a mom is unfathomable in your mind.
For me anyways.
You knew you'ld love your just didn't realize how much.
And when you do it a second time???
You question how you can have enough love for both of them...
but, you just do.

"Making the decision to have a child-it's momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart
go walking around outside your body."
