No one could ever have prepared me for how tough it is being a mother. For the sleepless nights of worrying, the anxiety of every decision, the heartbreak of watching your baby sick with a fever. The amount of research that goes into every decision from which toy or bike to get them to what school or daycare would be best for them. The antics of a boy (no matter the age) that give you gray hair every other minute of the day. Or the emotional cycles of a 3 and 4 year old girl that I can only assume is a learning experiment for puberty or their first heartbreak.
And you know what else no one could have prepared me for? The love. The absolute heart wrenching, hurricane force love that you feel for them. The feeling of being wrapped so tightly in their arms for that good morning greeting, the laughter of playing hide and seek, the giggles of giving them a bath and jumping on the bed naked afterward, the sleepy murmurs of love spoken as they finally drift off to sleep.
Time is something that we never seem to have enough of.
The days are long but the years are short.
