Being a better Mother

I know that I'm a better Mon now then I was at the age 18 to the age 34. After getting pregnant at the age of 34 with my 3rd child,I thought that I had just lost my mind. I had been married for more than a decade,but in a loveless marriage. I have not ever like being pregnant. I didn't like getting fat and watching my body get out of shape. I just wanted this to be over. After having my last son,I started to be more loving toward all of my kids, and doing things that would not upset them. I even breast feed my new baby. When I had my other 2 children I thought it was nasty to let a baby suck on your breast. Now I would not have traded breast feeding my baby for any thing in the world. I really wish I would have breast feed my other 2 children. Now I'm loving being a mom with 2 boys that live away from home and 1 child that is 9 years old now and loving life. Take care of your children because there all you have. Sonya

hey Son.. it's great to hear that... I was very young when i had my first son..i got pregnant at 16 and gave birth at 17... but i never went through not liking being pregnant..i guess i was more scared.. i didnt know how to be a mom.. but when i had my baby..the maternal instinct just kicked in... I brestfed my baby for almost a year before i decided to go back to school... and now my son is 14 years old and i have another 3 year old boy..i guess i am also a better mom coz I have learned so much from raising my first son

My 2 oldest boys think that there little 9 year old brother is supper spoiled because I don't have to put him on restriction like I did when they were my 9 yr olds age. I had no patients back then, but now I do. He is my little man, and I love him so much. He has changed the way I see myself as a mother of 3, living without any support from there father. So I know I'm a better Mother than I have ever been in my life.

we know our kids best more than anyone in the world..and we know how to raise them best... so no other person could tell us if we are good or bad mothers.. we only could say so and could tell if we did better than years back.. keep itup!
