Are You Happy Being a Mother?

Reading over “It’s Week 41—My Baby is never Coming Out!!”, I can’t believe that “My Baby” will be 5 years old in less than a month!

And “my baby”, Micah, that I waited so long for, is now a big brother. His “little sis”, Malia, just turned 2 in March.

Each day that passes by, I try to look at it as a gift from God. These children that God has given me, have taught me more about who I am than any other thing in my 40+ years. And they continue to teach me about love, grace, patience, kindness…basically, the Fruits of the Spirit, each and every day.  And I am reminded on a daily basis, that I have a lot to work on!!

Motherhood is Hard!! I think that I got so caught up in “ I just can’t wait until this baby arrives” that I never stopped to think that these little ones would grow up to be “Little-independent-self-serving-sinners!”

Actually, I’m blessed in that I have very well behaved children, but wow, it’s lot of hard work. Never ending, from the minute I wake up and till they finally fall to sleep around 9:00pm (or later during the summer!)

But you know what, I love it! And I’ve talked to a lot of mothers out there and they all feel the same way. They’d never trade it for anything else the world could offer.

As a mom, what do you feel? Are you happy being a mother? What are some of your secrets to having a well behaved child?

I’ll share some of what I think helps in the days to come. Have a blessed day!

    Hi Lacey,
    I know how hard motherhood can be!! Even with a great husband, being a mom is very hard…we have our ups and downs and finances are tight right now too.
    I’ll be praying for you and please email me at jen@prayforyourbaby.com so I get it right away.
    The one thing I can say is, try your hardest to just sit and play with your little guy. Throw the ball, teach him letters and numbers or better yet, bible verses.
    You won’t believe how fast these years go and you will never be able to get them back.
    Blessings to you and your son.
    Jennifer Polimino
