So You Want To Be A Mom and Have A Baby- What Happens When they Grow Up?
Dolls- The Beginning to Motherhood
So You Want To Be A Mom
Wanting to have a child and being a mother is almost every woman's dream and on the "to do list." I wanted to have a baby ever since I was a little girl. Having a doll and taking care of it was so intriguing and it's almost a natural and maternal feeling at even 3 or 4 years old. Think about it? When you were a little girl and had a doll, what did you do? You held it, kissed it, loved it, fed it with those plastic bottles and even changed the diaper and clothes. How amazing is it that at such a young age, you knew what to do?

Sleepless Nights When You Have A Baby and Illness
I remember the never ending sleepless nights when I had a baby. The crying every hour on the hour. He was either hungry, needed his diaper changed or just wanted to be held. During the day was the same-crying relentlessly as I walked around having two burnt holes in my eyes as I was exhausted. After finding out he had some health issues, which they don't always show signs when you are pregnant, does seem to have a significant change in your life, real quick. You need to be prepared for anything to happen from minute to minute and second to second.
A child does not come with an instruction booklet or any directions. Your motherly instincts are what you have, and they are amazing.

The Never Ending Worry
Most mothers and fathers worry about their children. The love you have for your little one is like no other. The bond is so strong that no one can break it. The worry is even deeper and it lasts a lifetime. You will become to know your child by looking at their eyes what they are thinking and how they feel. First time moms can be a little over-protective of their newborn and to me, so be it. It's your child and baby and it's natural to be concerned. If you weren't concerned, then I'd be worried. Just remember, your baby, no matter how old, will get hurt, have his/her falls and cry. The best you can do is be there and hold their hand through it all no matter how old.
A Baby Grows Up Into A Person
You don't realize that your baby will someday be a grown human being. That little baby that you are holding in your arms, will grow up and be a man or woman. I bet you don't think about it much. I never did. I knew I wanted a child ever since I could remember. I never stopped to think that one day he would be a grown man.
Children cost money and a lot of it. They need food, clothes, toys, diapers if they are still a baby, formula, etc. The list can go on and on and it is an endless list. Then comes school and that is another cost. Be prepared financially if you can would be my suggestion. Babies don't come with instructions or any directions. Even when they grow up, they still need your guidance and never ending love.
Would I do it again? You bet! If I could have had more than one, I would have, however; I would have maybe waited to have a baby when I was more financially stable and started a college fund when he was born. That is a hint to any new mothers or fathers. Kids grow up quickly and you don't realize how fast 18 years go by. Start a savings account by putting in five dollars a week. I wish I would have.
