We can't fully understand what it's like until we're parents, but with all the joys and difficulties, it's wonderful.
We live in an age where we are constantly getting information about raising children. Even before we have kids ourselves, we know that we are not alone before the enormous challenges of motherhood — but even so it’s an experience that each mother discovers for herself.
It will be the best, the most difficult, the most interesting, the funniest, and maybe even the craziest thing you’ve ever done. The highs and lows will be extreme, and you may even question your ability to do it many times, but the beauty and wonder of what you’ll live will be something truly amazing.
You’ll become a safe refuge
You’ll be able to calm your children just with your presence. From the moment they are in your womb, you become their refuge, and whenever they hear your voice or smell your scent, they will know that you’re there.
In the midst of every day, when you hear the word “mom,” you’ll mysteriously know what they need, even if they don’t tell you. You’ll never stop appreciating the wonderful reality that your arms are enough to make them feel safe and secure.
You’ll enter into a parallel world
Your life will become like a magical tale with princesses and superheroes. Soon, they will become your best friends. You’ll build up a repertoire of songs, some of which will include the names of your children, and you’ll always have a story on hand for everything: to get into the tub, to get dressed, to put away the toys …
You’ll love to see your husband as a “dad”
There may be daily situations where you feel overwhelmed or annoyed with your husband, but then you’ll leave all that aside when you see him, with immense tenderness, sharing time with the kids. Whether it’s singing a lullaby version of a rock song, playing, or participating in their activities, the contribution of his paternal imprint, which only dads can give and which is so important for the kids, will make you fall in love again.
