A letter from a young mom
In this world we live in now, becoming a mother at a younger age is becoming more of the norm. Yet even though it happens more and more, people seem to judge you more and more. They say that becoming a mom or parent at such a young age ends your life. That all you can ever become is a toy picking up, diaper changing, bath giving, and snot nose wipin everyday mamma.
I recently had a friend of mine travel on a 5 month hike, and on one of his inspirational post through Instagram some things he said caught my attention. Now he wasn’t putting down anyone, but instead encouraging people and do things you wouldn’t normally do like he did by going on this long endeavor. See his amazing photos of his travel here.
Now seeing his amazing adventure it came to me, that my life, my normal everyday mamma life is also truly amazing. I know this, and have known this since my son was born, but I believe that some people out there think that becoming a parent at such a young age ends your life, now I’m not knocking what my friend went through and how i know it was a life changing experience, I just want to let people in on a little secret. Being a toy picking up, diaper changing, bath giving, and snot nose wipin everyday mamma is possibly the most amazing and exciting adventure you will ever have in life because it never ends.
Finding that person who will truly unconditionally love you, that when you see their smile it lights up your world, that watching day by day how they learn something brand new, and become so excited and proud of themselves when they do. It’s so rewarding, like opening a new present each day for the rest of your life. Not just for a few months, or weeks, or days, but forever.
So mom’s to be, don’t think that your life will become irrelevant or that what you will go through each day is boring or lacks adventure, because it’s so much adventure, that some times your body will crash, you will be tired and never get a moment of peace, that even going to the bath room alone will be hard but all will be worth it.
