Motherhood is an astounding job. The realization of Motherhood didn't hit me until a month or so after my son was born. I've heard a million women say you fall in love at first sight and I was shocked to have it not happen when my first was born. I was completely overwhelmed when I didn't think I would be. I had support of all of my family. But nothing to make the realization of motherhood kick in like days or night alone. Just a mother and her children. Trying to figure out the Best way to be a mom. I'm so grateful that my love for my son came, not the first time I held him but rather in the middle of madness. On 2 hours of sleep at a midnight feeding.
At night when these challenges are put on hold. When the children you have turn into silent sleeping angels, is when the realization of how wonderful it really is kicks in.
The other night as I did the "walk through" of the house after the kids fell asleep, I saw little vignettes around the house. Every room was filled with little girl stuff that just made me smile.
So I brought along my camera and captured the gorgeous doll houses and collection of ponies.
I just wish I would have been able to capture my joy of being a Mother.
