Do you feel stressed out or are you content on being able to experience the different situations one has to encounter as a mother? I feel grateful and am looking forward to dealing with new situations day by day that deal with my daughter.

I think it is the most wonder experience that I'm glad I've had. There's good days and bad days. Your kids will love you when no one else will. And you will love your kids when they do the most horrible things. It is unconditional. I think a mother feels stressed at times, a lot of times. And other times a mother and her kids are content. There are different situation for all thing. As a mother of older kids I know it gets very stressful. With girls, Good luck. The love your kids give you is something that is worth taking all the pain that they give you + 10. Good luck with your daughter.........;-)

THank you for your response and for giving me a heads up on what to expect. My daughter does not talk quite yet but has still put me through situations I have never encountered. I feel the same way, a mothers love to their children is unconditional and regardless of what happens I know that it will all be worth it because they are your reason.

I am blessed! - every single day. I love my job, even when it is bad, I wouldn't change it for a thing. I had a career, I got married a bit late, had kids even later. I am in my mid 40s and my daughters are 2 and 5. I LOVE watching them explore and develop. I am amazed at them each day. Sometimes I look at them and I am amazed that they are mine and that I am old enough to be their mother, I still feel like a kid at times. It is truly a gift given by God to raise them.

Thank you for your response and for sharing what you have experienced in your life and what your children mean to you and how it is an amazing experience that you would not change for anything. I feel like a kid at times as well because I act like a goof ball around her so that she laughs and gets a little entertainment. I am at the beginning but yet anxiously waiting for many years of much love and fun to have with my daughter.

Your comment makes me think about all the things we do as moms that we never did before having kids. Our lives have changed in so many ways. The things we become comfortable with would ruffle our feathers before kids. The topics of discussion are truly humorous as times and we are being totally serious or concerned (eating, sleeping, pooping...)I have become comfortable with being touched in strange places, having my clothes lifted in public, being asked strange inquisitive questions, being walked in on while showering or using the facilities... The list goes on and on. It is amazing what we are able to put up with and accept from these little bundles of joy!

I agree with you, so many things you never imagined to happen happen. My daughter is so young and I can tell you she has made me go through different situations in public and private and am sure that there are many more to come but it's ok i am ready for anything and everything since I know they truly are outstanding and full of lots of fun and love.

Being a mother is so stressful but when I saw them it gives me strength.

Well for me i love being a mother. For me its kind of hard to adject to considering i have a 2 yr old and a 8month old and having to do this and that and keep up because im pretty much all they have fathers arent really what you call in the picture so its just me trying to do everything and keep up with everything but i love it and its great to see what stages they can go threw and people can say that this works for a baby and that does but honestly no baby is the same as having 2 kids i know its not the same because my boys are totally different .

Wow! I love your topic...and this what i have to say: I have 3 very small children ages 3, 2 and a 2 month old baby girl...i look for them without any help or minimal help from my mother..sometimes my husband...i have to tell you its very stressful sometimes especially if they throw tantrums...yes the 3 of them and i get a headache. But with other days, they tend to be sweet and smile a lot at you, their laugh is just a joy to my heart...when i was growing up i always feel like there is something lacking in me but now that i am a mother i feel complete...being needed and wanted is a very wonderful feeling because to your child you mean the world to them...i hope this has inspired you.

THank you for the compliment you made towards the topic and for the response. Now that I am a "newbie" mother with an 8 month old daughter I see things differently and absolutely agree with everything you wrote. It is true, it feels great.. as the saying goes " To the world you may mean but one, But to One you may mean the World" and that is the greatness of motherhood and has made me feel complete as a person.
