Mommyhood Musings (In Photos)
Before settling down and before getting pregnant, I incessantly thought about how I didn’t want to be like one of “those people.”
Those people who, after getting married, quickly transformed into being “hey-I’m-married-and-I’m-now-a-serious-adult People.” Or, who have babies and suddenly morphed into “all-I-care-for-is-my-baby People.”
I’m not sure if that’s unusual or if you know what I mean. I guess, I’m referring to those people who tend to totally change who they are to take on a new major role and who can no longer relate to those who are not yet married or who are not yet blessed with a baby.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a moody monster who loathes the idea of being motherly and domestic. When I decided to tie the knot last year (after a decade-long relationship), I’m pretty certain that I just wanted to stay ‘me’ and didn’t really want to change who I am at a fundamental level. And when my husband and I learned that we’re having a baby, I knew at once that I didn’t want to become an instant stage mom.
But after seeing our little one via ultrasound, actively wiggling and kicking inside my womb, I decided to rethink my views about being Mrs. Football Mom.
I’m not saying that I’m already like those people—I guess now; I’m just less harsh because I understand them more. What I’ve become is someone who has begun to reconnect with her inner core.
I’ve become a more expanded person, and yet, I’m still me.
I understand that moving into the realm of the “all-I-care-for-is-my-baby People” happens easily when you have an amazing little bean inside you that just turns your world upside down and makes you open up a bit to fly headlong into the changes he or she has brought about.
I realized that it’s truly a great feeling to finally know your path and your purpose in life.
I definitely feel like I’m a deeper and somehow, bigger (literally and figuratively) person than I was a few months ago. And I’m sure that I wouldn’t go back for anything.
Here’s a quick peek to my trip to mommyhood (so far) in photos:
