Every mother knows the magic of that moment. That moment when you see the 2 pink lines , hear the first heartbeat , feel that first kick, when you meet your child face-to-face for the first time, when you hold your baby in your arms and realize—this brief and precious moment has changed my world forever. I am a Mom!
My Little moments of perfection
I know, people always tell you, having a child was the happiest moment in their life and in hindsight it probably was, but the moment itself for me, really, just felt surreal. I couldn’t believe she was finally there and that she was “mine”. The fact that I was now her mum, was just too big to grasp at that moment, but I did feel this overwhelming sense of responsibility for this tiny little human. I have written about Lil P’s birth story before.. and can’t believe its been 8 years since I first held her in my arms for the very first time.
Along the way, there were many many Little moments of perfection .. many firsts – that first glimpse of my baby, the first time I held her, kissed her, smelt the babyness off her, nursed her, When she first grasped my finger, when she gave her first smile, that toothless grin, her first baby laugh, her first steps, her first tooth.. and I suddenly realized that she is growing up way too fast. Was there one moment of perfection that defined me as a mum, I don’t believe so. Every new day makes me watch my daughter in amazement. Makes me wonder where has my little girl gone?
I remembered a poem – Can I carry you By Brad Anderson and thought I should add my own spin to it..
Having a child is a moment of perfection where your entire life changes forever… hold on tight in your following days of adventure with your little one!
