There are numerous things that I have learned since I became a mother. I knew that this experience would definitely be a life-changing experience, but even I did not expect it to be this drastic. Here are ten things I have learned once I stepped into motherhood.
No More Sleep For Me!
I have always loved a goodnight’s sleep. However, my sleeping routines had to change once I had given birth to my little one. I pretty soon realized that there isn’t going to be much sleep for me in years to come. Still, I can honestly say – I don’t mind!
As my son came to this world, I became so much more interested in healthy eating, healthy lifestyle and how I can provide the best care for both my baby and my family. Therefore, my baby has actually been the reason for me to ditch all the nasty habits my family had when it comes to dieting and exercising.
My Baby Taught Me A Lot
I can say that having a baby did not only change me a lot, but it really taught me a lot. I learned all over how to laugh, how to cry and how to look the world through a child’s eyes – it is simply amazing!
My Baby Is My World
I believe that this is true for many other parents as well, my baby really became my whole world! I have my own interests before I had my baby, and I am not relating my entire identity to parenthood alone. My child simply imposed himself as the top priority in my life.
Being a parent myself, really made me understand all other parents and their actions. That being said, it also made me realize a lot about my own parents and kept me reminiscing moments with my parents and their actions I did not understand as a child. In other words, being a parent gave my life a completely new perspective.
I Started Resembling My Parents
Yes, I started resembling my parents. Many people dread that moment, but I embraced it and I owned it!
I Felt New Kind Of Love
I felt a completely new kind of love that I haven’t felt before when my son was born. I would not change it for anything!
My Relationship With My Partner Changed
Even my relationship with my partner changed. We became a united front and I knew my partner would always be there for me. I feel so blessed to have someone with whom I can share all of this.
I Became Unstoppable!
I remember being a shy and timid child, and just as shy as a grownup until I had my child! Once you become a parent, you would do anything for your child!
Being a parent is definitely a feeling that I would not change for anything else in the world!
