Today is Mother’s Day! And to celebrate, I am doing something different, we all know the beauty of motherhood, but what’s the correct definition? As quoted by dictionary.com motherhood means “The state of being a mother,” we all know that, but what is the true definition from a mother’s perspective?
This Mother’s day, I will not be writing about the beauty of motherhood as I can only see it, so today I asked one question to several mummy bloggers who are experiencing motherhood “What is the beauty of being a mum?”
Curious? I sure am, so let’s find out!
“Never in my life have I imagined being this in love. Never have I imagined being this happy, with a little human being who stole our heart in just four months. It’s so rewarding to see him smile at you, seeing him learning things which you teach him every day.
Being a mum is the best feeling in the world! And I cannot wait to show him the world”
“One of the most beautiful gifts motherhood has to offer is the power to be able to re-see the world through a child’s eyes. Not just with your eyes, but with your heart and soul.”
“Becoming a mum has filled my life in so many ways… My schedules are full, my rooms are full of toys and clutter, my brain is full (mum brain anyone?:) ) my fridge is full.. wait that was this morning;) but mostly my heart is full. These little children of mine have filled our lives with so much happiness.. yes they are hard work… but the love I feel for them is so big and the love they give to us is priceless. However, the greatest beauty of being a mum is seeing the world through your child’s eyes. Their zest for life and joyous nature is contagious and they make me feel so alive. Liam and Kate I am so thankful that I get to be your mummy.. forever and ever!”
Being a mum of 3 is not easy. Sometimes I find myself worrying about loads of things and thinking of their future. But it is also the most beautiful thing that ever happened to me
“Being a mother has been the most beautiful yet one of the most challenging parts of my life. Motherhood is a huge learning experience, learning more about myself and my little one each day as we grow together. She has taught me so much about myself while I teach her about the world around her”
“Being a mother has many different aspects … the tough side, the emotional side… the fun part, the beautiful part and endless love! You worry, you get tired … you are exhausted… you think you’re not doing enough … you think you are not good enough. You find others making it better !! But when you hold your children in your arms. You see them happy. You see the look in their eyes. You just forget about everything. There is no love bigger than that of a mother for her kids. Happy mothers day to all ❤️”
“Motherhood is the most amazing journey that one can go through in life! Its that kind of journey that unlike any other gives you that ability to love someone who you have not met yet and the strenght to keep going even when times are tough and you are beyond exhausted. Last but not least it fills your heart with so much love and happiness that no one or nothing can ever replace.”
“Motherhood is challenging and will bring out positive aspects of your character that you never thought you had. Every milestone your child reaches is a celebration because the skills taught today will be useful in the future”
“My daughter is six now, and I can’t even imagine life before her. My life got turned upside down and the right way round. Watching her grow before my eyes and the pride I feel, is such a magical feeling and I never cease to be grateful for it. Being a mother had made me realize that some things cannot be learnt from books. My daughter has taught me so much about life and love in a way that only a mother can experience. She has inspired me to do good and that’s how my vanillamummy blog was born. And if I were to succeed in all my dreams, I would still consider motherhood as my greatest achievement”
As you can see, one word with several definitions and all of them show how a mother loves her children unconditionally!
From my side, I would like to thank all the mummy bloggers who found some time sharing their mummy experience with me and Happy Mother’s Day to all mother’s out there. Dads, if you’re reading this, kiss your wife and appreciate her for what she is doing with the children and last but not least call your mum and thank her for raising you!
