I've been a mother for 3 and 1/2 years. I can't remember my previous life. I didn't intend to become a momma when I did. I was still in school. We were renting a one bedroom apartment. But I'm glad I did. Now, my days are disgusting and stressful. I'm always tired. I've changed a diaper every day for three and a half years! Yet my heart melts at seeing their smiles and hearing the little voices. Everyday brings new growth, new joy. My life is difficult, nevertheless, I can't imagine living any other way.
I am thankful for these two munchkins coming along and showing me how to grow and mature as an adult. It's as though they are teaching me more than I can teach them. For this journey of motherhood, I am thankful.
