But then late last night (when I should have been sleeping in preparation for the morning craziness!) it came to me. My wisdom for the moms-to-be.
Having a baby will feel like the BEST thing ever and you will LOVE it. Having a baby will also feel like the WORST thing ever and sometimes you'll wonder why you decided to become a mom. It's ok to feel both of those things. It's normal. Because being a mom is hard. But worth it.
So worth it. Just don't ask me how I feel about motherhood at 7:05 AM as I'm trying to get everyone out the door! Probably shouldn't ask at 7:05 PM either as I'm getting everyone ready for bed. But the in-between times are fair game:) Because these kids light up my world.
And they keep me quite entertained too...
Hannah: How do you spell your name?
Me: B-E-A-R. Bear.
Hannah: No! Your regular name.
Me: Oh. Mom? M-O-M.
Hannah: Yeah. Mom.
Charlotte: Look a pine tree!
Me: That is not a pine tree.
Charlotte: Are you sure?
Me: Yep I'm sure. I grew up surrounded by pine trees and that definitely isn't one.
Try PALM tree my dear:)
Me: If you ever have questions or want to talk about anything with me I'm here. Ya know like about babies...
Isaiah: You mean how babies are SO cute?
Me: Yes! Exactly. They are so cute.
(Not AT ALL what I was hinting at. But I'll take it. He's sweet and innocent. And I want him to stay that way forever!)
