Nothing Can Truly Prepare You For...


Nothing can truly prepare you for...


The moment you hold your baby for the first time and feel the enormity of parenthood placed on your shoulders


The first time your baby smiles at you and the pure joy and love that washes over you


Running on empty while taking care of a sick child who you’d gladly switch places with if it meant they no longer had to suffer


Watching your child persevere and overcome a challenge and the absolute pride you have in them


The last time you’re called Mommy and the first time you’re called Mom


When your child experiences their first heartbreak and there’s nothing you can say or do to make it all better


The constant worrying about their wellbeing that you know will never end no matter how old they are


Witnessing them make mistakes and fail and knowing you shouldn’t come to the rescue because they will learn more navigating them on their own


The day your child moves out of your home and into the world without you


The moment you no longer become the most important person in their life


The realization that parenthood is the most fulfilling, beautiful, hardest, scariest experience in the world
