What Does Being A Mother Mean To You-Mommy Dearest-The Love Of A Mother Never Fades
Mother and Child Bonding
A Mother and Child Special Bond From The Beginning
The mother child bond starts as soon as you are pregnant. You seem to know everything about your child from pregnancy there on.
I remember when I was pregnant and was so worried I wouldn't know how to take care of a baby. The feeling was overwhelming at first. After all, I am going to have this baby, and after 3 days in the hospital, it was time to pack your bags, your diapers and bottles and go home. OH wait! AND the baby!
They are wheeling you out of the hospital with your baby in your arms, and your joyful and ever so proud spouse/boyfriend/father ( to some of you out there-I'm sorry for those of you who didn't go out that way). We can even say, the person who didn't carry this child in their belly for 9 months, vomited, felt miserable most of the time, looked like a fat cow, etc. Anyway, the family and friends are just going crazy over this little tiny person you just brought home. But, they don't realize that you have no clue of what you are doing yet. You just brought this little thing home. The nurses aren't there to take the baby away to let you sleep. They aren't there to help teach you how to nurse.
But amazingly, I mean amazingly, your instincts kick in, and you seem to know what that cry means. You know when they are hungry, you know they need their diaper changed. You even know if something is wrong. The motherly instincts of a child, are just fascinating. I never thought I would know what to do when I brought my child home from the hospital.
Babies Grow Into Adults
The one thing you really don't think about when you want to have a child, is that the baby you love and can hold and kiss every night, grows up into a person. Yes, a person- an adult, a human being. Throughout their lifetime they will need things. They need food, clothes, a roof over their head at all times, and love. If you cannot offer all of these, then you aren't ready to be a mother (or a parent). You don't have to be rich to give love or the basic necessities of life. You just have to be willing to sacrifice. It's a sacrifice that most are more than willing to give of themselves.
From Birth on You Are Special
There's No Other Love Like A Mother's Love
would throw myself in front of a train if it would save my child. If you think about a mother's love in any other way about the strong bond you will forever have, think of this:
When James Holmes murdered all those people in the movie theater, his mother still stood by him. In other words, no matter what your child does, you will still always have that love. That doesn't mean you approved, it just means your love is that strong.
When you decide to become a mom, it's a lifelong commitment, but one that never fades or gets destroyed. NO matter what.
As you soon will find out, you need your kids as much as they need you. The point of this article is just this. That amazing little person that you figured out how to take care of from the day you brought him/her home, still needs you no matter how old they get. BUT, more so, you need them. You need your children, more than they will ever need you. I wouldn't know what to do without my child. Actually, I don't know how I lived without him for 25 years until I had him. A mother's love and the bond you feel is the deepest, honest, most heartfelt and indescribable feeling you will ever have in your lifetime. Please take the time to give your kids a hug and show them love. They need it yes, but they don't realize, you need their hugs more.
They say Jesus loves us more than we love our children. What a wonderful feeling he must have because I can't even describe it enough. Cheers out there to you mothers and Bless you all. I always hear the saying, " you will never stop worrying about your child." I never really understood that until I had a child. Cheers to all the mothers out there as you are very special.
Something to think about when it comes to the mother child bond
Let me put it to this way. When my grandmother was dying at the age of 86, she was crying out for her mother who passed away 50 years ago. Now, if that doesn't tell you just how special a mother is, then nothing will.
Feel free to comment and join in if you have the same feeling !
