I have been trying to think of some insightful words of wisdom to blog about all day. The only thing I could bring to my mind was how blessed and grateful I am for my two kids. When my two blessings brought me breakfast in bed this morning, I said to them, "thank you for making me a mommy." Both of them commented back by saying something like, "well, you did it, you kissed daddy and that is why I am here." They are so sweet and innocent (at least for now anyways). But then again, I (we) did do it. We created life (with the major help of God), but what a huge responsibility we have with something we made.
Being a mom, conceiving a child, and giving birth goes along with so much. As corny as it is...there is a famous line in a Spiderman movie that says, "with great power comes great responsibility." Being a mom has great power. We have the power to control bed times, what our kids eat, where our kids go to school, where we will raise our kids, and so much more. However, with these sweet beings, we have so much responsibility. We have the responsibility to raise our kids to be amazing people. If you are anything like me, we are raising our kids to be nothing like our faults. We want the very best for our kids, and we sacrifice an enormous amount of blood, sweat, and tears to make these kids happy and well off.
I mentioned having words of wisdom for you, but honestly our kids have more words of wisdom than we could ever give. It is what it is to them. Things come and go, they question, and that is where the hard part comes in....but.... they are able to understand things we do not. They accept things that we want to change. I wish so badly that I still had that mentality.
I am blessed to be a mom because my kids teach me more than what I probably teach them and they do not even know it. They make me want to be a better person. When I am not with them, I am thinking about them. They have changed my life.
