10 Things I’ve learnt since becoming a mom

10 ThingsI've learnt since becoming a mom

We all know that becoming a parent is a life changing experience.  Here is a quick roundup of just a few things that I have learnt since becoming a mom.

1. Your heart really is a living, breathing creature that is just walking around outside of your body.

2. As a mother you really do put all of your own interests on the back burner. Which is why it becomes so important that you make an effort to take care of yourself as well.

3. Pregnancy and motherhood is one of the most joyous moments and life changing events you can experience. Unfortunately it is also a time when you will feel the most judged and criticized.  It’s not always easy, but it’s so important to learn how to tune the judgers out.

4. I’ve learnt not only how strong my own intuition can be, but I’ve also learnt to trust it.

5. I’ve learnt that another persons tears hurts me a lot more than my own. (can’t stand hearing my baby cry!)

6. But I’ve also learnt that there is no greater joy then seeing your baby happy and hearing that adorable laughter.

7. There is nothing more attractive than seeing your husband being a great father.

8. I’ve suddenly become an expert at knowing which places are stroller friendly and which places to avoid.

9. I’ve learnt that time passes too quickly.  Stop growing so fast my little man!

10. And finally, the main thing I’ve learnt since becoming a mom, is just how much my own mother loves me and how much she did (and still does) for me. Becoming a mother definitely gives you a new appreciation for your own mom.  Thanks mom!!

    Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Was wondering if you’d be interested in letting me include some of your words in a book I’m working on about mothers and children? And/or if you’d be interested in writing a post or answering a series of motherhood-related questions that may appear in the book? Your name, age, and location would be included or you can be anonymous. No worries at all if you’re not interested, just thought I’d check. Thanks, JD.

  2. I’d add take photos and write stuff down…to revisit when you miss those little baby faces! So true, it does definitely go way too fast. Like everything wonderful in life xx

  3. Baby laughs and smiles are pure magic. Being a parent is the hardest thing. Being completely selfless for the rest of your life…the lack of sleep….eating luke warm food….no time to do what you want etc etc but time does fly! My sons already 1 and im missing him being small cradled in my arm. The best experience in life becoming a parent by far.

    1. I completely agree! My son is 15 months and I get so nostalgic thinking about the baby days. Toddler days are an entirely different sort of magic though right. Have to enjoy every minute of his growing up! 🙂
