A mother wears many hats but she also carries many loads.Loads of emotions fill a single day when you become a mother.
Exhaustion- Baby waking up.
Excitement, the baby recognizes your face and smiles.
Anxiety, the baby is crying and will not stop.
Tranquility, the baby is cooing as you rock her to sleep.
Sadness, the baby is cutting a tooth and does not understand why she suffers in pain.
Happiness, the baby rolled over for the first time.
To be a mother means you agree to be vulnerable. A lifetime of emotions happens every day. The salary deserved is incalculable.
I found this piece I wrote for a similac contest years ago. I thought I would post it because it still holds true. Any mother could relate.
