Motherhood has taught me a lot of things. Not just about the role, but about myself and human beings in general.
Because You’re Mine
I Walk The Line
“I’ve got a close eye on this heart of
mine, I keep my eyes wide open all the
Yes I’ll admit I’m a fool for you,
Because you’re mine, I walk the line.”
Babies are exactly like mirrors, I discovered there were things I said a lot but was never aware of when I started hearing Giada say them, and I started noticing my mannerisms (and dare I say it… attitude) come out in her as soon as she turned two. They feel what you feel, think what you think, do as you do, and believe in what you believe in. It doesn’t matter if it’s right or wrong, and that’s the kicker. Of all things motherhood has taught me, it’s that if I don’t do the right thing, neither will they, and that’s no fault of their own. I’ve learned that it’s not only important to be a good person and role model for myself, but even moreso for them, whether I felt like it or not. Having children changed me in ways I wasn’t expecting, and for the best. Even on bad days, I now have no choice but to put on my best face and smile through it because if I don’t, I’ll see the same emotions in my kids. I try everyday to set the best example and show them right from wrong, and even if we do a fantastic job as mothers, we’re still always left feeling like we could have done more. That’s the thing, it’ll never be enough when it comes to your babies and I think that overall that is a good factor to always have on your mind. It leaves you always wondering how you can do better, how you can be kinder and how you can act more appropriately. My children have taught me this and so much more, and because of that I now know why babies are always referred to as “little angels”. It’s because they’re exactly that; they come into your world, watch over you ever second of the day, and teach you all the greatest of good the world has to offer… Even if they drive you crazy from time to time.
