Life is greater than before becoming a mother. It gives you lot of pleasure and happiness to look your kid grow day by day. Now my kid is 15 months old, i see him grow everyday mentally, educationally and in many nore ways. You learn many things with him. You become a child again with him. Great to be a mother. Would like to hear from all of you your feelings about being a mother

I love the feeling that you speak of. I never felt any greater joy than the day I became a Mother. Every time I look at that little face, I have so many mixed emotions! He is 8 years old now, but I love being able to experience everything in the world over again through his eyes. It is the greatest feeling to me!! #:)

I agree! I have 2 girls and I love everything about being their mother. It has made me into such a better person because now I have to be a good role model. I do every decision with them in mind. I love doing things with them because they make me appreciate the little things. I forgot how much fun a snowball fight is or how beautiful a sunset is. They also keep me young and on my toes and I love it!!

I feel the same way you do. It's a great feeling. My daughter just turned 8 months old, and she has learned so much. She sits on her own, babbles, rolls, feeds herself, and is learning to stand. I couldn't imagine not being a mother.

Congratulations on Motherhood. I totally agree how wonderful it is. My girls are now 19 and 23 and have been the greatest gift in my life and continue to be. Best advice I always try to give to Mothers that my mom told me and I learned how true is to enjoy every minute you can with your children. It really does seem like a blink of the eye that they have grown up. Also, I use to struggle dearly to always get them whatever their little hearts desired and knocked myself out trying to give them way too much for their birthdays and holidays. And today as they are grown, they barely remember those must have toys or clothes. The best gift I did give them was quality time. They really do remember all those times we did something together and most of these times were zero cost. You sound like a wonderful mom and I wish you a life time of joy as a Mother.

I can not imagin what life will be after I ger married and have a child of my own. My parents have four children and since I have memories, I can not remember them ever enjoy themselves, or entertainment themselves. They had to earn money very hard for their four children's life,education fee and so on. They always in financial crisis even though my father had a seven-floor building to rent and had his own business. The situation becomes better after My older and younger sisters and I graduated fron the univeristy and all begin to work, now only my younger brother is studying in the university, so they can be a little relieve now. But now they are not young anymore.
