What Being a Mom Really Means

My life

I am Ruby 27 years old a mother of two, for me Motherhood is one of the hardest but most rewarding job. My husband and I met at work, In December 2012 it wasn’t long before we decided to get together. Soon were blessed with two healthy, cheerful, nasty but sweet princesses Dionne Elodie and Dianna Elisse. We decided to to have our second child for Dionne because she wanted to have a sister. But it wasn’t easy for us when Dianna came into our lives because our time with our first child was reduced. At first I was crying because she still wanted to sleep in my arms and I would hug him. But I couldn’t because every time I laid on Dianna’s bed she immediately woke up. Until he got used to it I couldn’t hug him for long until he fell asleep.

There’s a lot of changes in my life since I had my own family. Before, I used to to buy everything I wanted to buy, now I would rather buy something for the kids. Before, whenever I want to go out with friends I will go alone, now I don’t want to go out without my kids. Before, I had to prepare only my meals, now the kids will eat first and then I’ll eat. Before, any time I wake up it’s okay, now I have to get up early to prepare food, have the children take a bath, clean the whole house and other activities. Before, Mom was there to wash my clothes now, I was the one doing the laundry. But in all the hardships of the day, it is still feeling good to serve and take care your children and husband. Before you go to bed, watch them and you will feel good about being a mother. I can’t do what I want, buy what I want, get what I want, I still have more time for it. Because now family first. Now, I only want to cherish and value all the kisses and hugs from my little girls , play with them, take care of them and cook them. I will never get tired of being a mother to them. I want them to experience the care my mother gave me.

The meaning of being a mother is virtually endless. A mother is a protector, disciplinarian and friend. A mother is a selfless, loving human who must sacrifice many of their wants and needs for the wants and needs of their children. A mother works hard to make sure their child is equipped with the knowledge, skills and abilities to make it as a competent human being. Being a mother is perhaps the hardest, most rewarding job a woman will ever experience.
