Thoughts On Motherhood

I've heard a lot of opinions about when to get married, how long you should wait to have children, how many children to have, how far apart to have your children, etc. I probably can't appropriately express how passionate I am about this subject. This is such a personal issue and for each couple, the answer is different. I want to express to you today how important motherhood is to me.

I have wanted to be a mother since I knew what a baby was. I was ecstatic the day I got the call for my first babysitting job. Since then I have known; I want to be a mother. People ask what I want to be when I grow up, my answer was and still is, a mother. Now that I have a daughter, my passion for motherhood grows stronger and stronger each day.

All of the sleepless nights, being pooped on, screamed at and moments of having no idea what to do all disappear when my baby girl smiles, rolls over for the first time, finally eats her whole bowl of rice cereal, plays with her toys, etc.

Even with all those less than ideal times, I can tell you that my passion and desire to be a mother has not suffered one bit. People ask how many kids do you want? I answer 12. Part of me may be kidding, but I will take 1,2,3,4, or 10 more children. I want to be a mother to how ever many children God will entrust me with. Some may call me crazy for wanting a big family, and that is just fine with me. I will be a crazy woman with 12 kids and a husband standing behind me. We will be an army!
