I’ve been putting off writing any sort of “Mummy” post as I just don’t even know where to begin. There’s so much to say and so little time to write!
Being a mother is.. and this is where I stop to really think because there obviously is no one word to describe it all. It’s amazing. Incredible? Wonderful? Breath-taking?..it’s all of these things and so so much more. I cannot put into words the feeling that comes from the knowledge that there’s a little person solely dependent on you. That you’re responsible for a life other than your own. That everything you do, you do for them, because there’s now a person who’s life is more important to you than your own.This little person comes before everything and everyone.
Friends ask if I can remember what it was like before Maia was born…Life before Maia seems so insignificant when I compare to how things are now. I feel as though before Maia came along I lacked direction, I felt a little lost and I almost felt I lacked purpose. Without sounding too cheesy, life has a lot more meaning now. I know what I’m doing (Just about). I’m Maia’s mother; my job is to do everything in my power to make sure she’s raised in the best way possible, that she’s as happy and healthy as possible and that I will be there for her, always. I want to be the best role model I can be for her, I want to make her proud to call me her mummy!
People ask if I could imagine life without her now. I could, but I wouldn’t want to.
It IS so difficult to sum up the role of motherhood. It’s all of those things and so much more.
