its all about what matters most

A while back I was reading {this} post from the sweet Erika of Life Unfluffed.
I could totally relate to what she was saying.
 4 years ago, my life as I knew it changed.
That was when I had my first born.
I somehow found an article from Baby Center titled
42 things that change when you have a baby.

I struggled at first with so many changes and it helped me to get through my  new life becoming a mother.

My friendships changed.
My daily routine changed.
I got less sleep.
I got less alone time.
I got a lot less husband and wife alone time!
Now we have 2 children.

I cannot imagine my crazy life any way else.

I love my children as crazy as they make me.

I crawl into my son's bed at night when he's sleeping and stroke his hair and kiss his cheek and I'm amazed at the little human he has become.
I'm so proud to hear him count and write his name and problem solve. When he is loving to his sister I know that he feels loved. The pride in my heart when he creeps up quietly when I am feeding his sister and gently kisses her on the head is undescribeable.

I hold my baby in my arms before putting her down in her crib at night just a little bit longer knowing she isn't going to stay a baby for long. The joy I feelwhen my baby girl takes her first 5 steps towards me and says mama, there are no words.

I terribly miss sleeping in or not waking up in the middle of the night to nurse, yes I she is still waking up! (Uggh)

But the feeling of being a mother, only a mother knows.

I feel so blessed to have two amazing human beings that are a part of me and my husband.

So just as Erika said in her post, I too feel sorry for this woman who doesn't know yet the feeling of unconditional love when your child needs you and you need your child.
