I remember it like it was yesterday, that moment when I was told we could go home from the hospital. Of coarse I was excited to bring my sweet girl home, but this was it, no more help from the nurses and no one telling me whether I was doing this whole mothering thing right. Now I was responsible for this tiny little babe in my arms and I had instantly forgotten everything I had ever learned about being a parent. The truth is, no matter how much you research or how much you prepare, it all comes down to your love for this child. Whether you read every book on parenting or haven’t even looked at the parenting section at Barnes&Noble. That motherly instinct that kicks in, trumps any book or magazine you could possibly read. You will know instantly that you are willing to do anything to make sure your child is taken care of. Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying you should go in blind, I just believe that your baby will bring out a side of you that you would never even know existed. God chose this child specifically for you, because he knew you are the perfect mommy for them. So for that first time mommy that is looking high and low for information, take a break from it all, go download some relaxing music and enjoy the pregnancy because believe me one day you will be wishing you cherished it a little more.
yours truly, Victoria
