1.) Interview you mom...questions might include, How has motherhood changed you? What ages were your favorites? Do you miss having having kids in the house? What was the most difficult part of being a mom for you? What was the most rewarding part? etc...
2.) Tell us the story of your birth.
3.) How did you parents choose your name? What does it mean? What would you change your name to if you could?
4.) Describe a moment when you realized your mom was more than just a mom.
5.) Write a poem for your Mama.
Well these prompts wer more difficult for me. 1. I would love to interview my mom or MIL but neither are avaliable.. :( 2. I am not sure I know the story of my birth.... I know some details but not enough to blog about it. 3. not sure... 4. WOW 5. I don't do poems...
So 4 it is. Sorry if this is long winded.
The first thing that comes to mind when I read this topic is something that happend to me when I had my first baby. She was just a monthish old (come on now that was two years ago I don't remember the exact age) She was having a prolapse and bleeding from her little bum... this freaked me OUT. Bloody poo... not a good sign. I went to the dr. multiple times and they said it because I was breastfeeding it was something in my diet that maybe she was allergic to etc.
So I tried no dairy for a while that was hard to adjust to... seriously, think about what you eat and how much of it has dairy ingredients in it. I tried writting down every single thing I ate and figuring out what it was that was causing this. Anyway it was an agonizing month that this went on for and I just cried and continuely beat myself up because I couldn't figure it out and the poor thing was suffering I felt like a bad mother and I was to the point of switching to formula to just solve the problem... and that wasn't a choice I liked at all.
Anyway my mother was there to talk me through it and help go through my diet (all over the phone since we are 3 hours away) Together the families prayed to help me solve this problem and finally figured it out, but it was this challenge and trial in my life that taught me so much. It showed me how hard being a mom is and how important every little thing is, and how important my mother is now to help me through my trials with my kids.
So NO mother is not JUST A mother.. none of us are. A mother is a foundation, a friend, someone put specifically in our lives to help us along the way throughout this life and seriously can you imagine your life without YOUR mother?
On another note I just went through another little trial with this second baby and guess what it was my MIL this time that had to walk me through it.
WOW I seriously love my mothers!!! (and people who aren't my mother but help me in the same way as my mother like my Sister Brittany, and BFF Joane)
Now pick your prompt and write about it, Then link up!
