Motherhood is.....

My friend Papaya Mom introduced me to the MommaBlogga website. Jordan from MommaBlogga hosts group writing projects, so I thought what better way to get better at writing then to enter? Want to enter? You can Enter Here!

Moday's blog is Motherhood is/means to me..

Where do I even begin with this statement?

Motherhood is graham cracker kisses, hugs around the neck, tiny feet and belly laughs. It's knowing full well that a piece of your heart is walking around outside of your body and trying to hold on to that piece and keep it near you for as long as possible.

It means sticky fingers, handprints on the walls and crayon artwork where it doesn't belong. Car seats, diapers, potty training and Elmo DVD's. It can mean loving your husband/partner even more because of the knowledge that he helped create this wonderful little person.

Motherhood is stretch marks, 3am feedings and saggy boobs. It's realizing you're totally out of the loop and SO much less cool than you used to think you were.

Most of all, Motherhood means that your life is changed forever. Not for the weak or the faint of heart, motherhood is the most important job you will ever be blessed to have. It's 24/7, 365 days a year and though there are no sick days or vacation time alotted you will be paid full well in 'I Love You, Mom's,' macaroni artwork and toothless baby grins.
