{May is For Moms} {An Interview With...}{Link Up}

I am linking up with Sam and some lovely ladies for what she is calling May is For Moms!

This Mother's Day is my very first with Gracie. She wasn't born yet last year, so I am excited to finally be able to celebrate it with her! 

I think this idea is really cool and just an awesome way to celebrate the wonder that is motherhood! 

An Interview With Myself

1. Before you ever even had children, how did you feel about being a mother?
I didn't want kids, at least not for awhile. I knew that I was too selfish and goal oriented and I didn't want my child to suffer. I liked kids, but wasn't so sure I wanted to be responsible for making one. I thought that maybe once I had accomplished what I wanted to, then I could have kids.

2. Since becoming a mother, what is something that has happened that you never thought would?
I am 100% in total can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, World Series kind of stuff-(Ten bucks to you if you know what I am quoting)-in love with this kid of mine. She's the coolest person on the planet. She's funny. She is lovable and squishy. I honestly didn't think it was possible to love a tiny human so much and so quickly. I was just totally unprepared for how much I was going to love her. It took me by surprise how much I love her and how fast my momma instincts kicked in. 
 She is by far, my greatest accomplishment.

3. Is being a mother less difficult, more difficult or exactly how difficult you imagined?
It's about how I imagined it to be. Gracie is a really easy baby so I got it lucky with her, but as easy as she is, it's still really hard to be 100% responsible for a tiny person all day. It's exhausting. I wasn't prepared for just how tired I was going to be.

4. What is your fondest memory of being a mother (so far)?
When she was born. She came out and I just couldn't stop crying. I cried for about an hour because I was just so stinkin' happy. I held her for the first time and I was her mom, she was my daughter. I honestly can't wrap my head around it, even still. It's one of my most precious memories.

5. If your children only learn one life lesson from you, what do you hope it is?
Never hate anyone that's different from you. Just love.


  1. It Takes Two!

    Some days I can't wrap my head around being a momma either. Thanks for linking up.

  2. You summed it up perfectly. I can't wrap my head around it either that these two little munchkins are mine :-)

  3. I really love your last answer! So sweet, I think that needs to be taught moer.

  4. Aw this was so sweet! I don't have any kids yet but I know I'm going to be bawling my eyes out when we have a baby, too...I'm getting to the age where I can't even read a baby/birth story without tearing up because it's all just so sweet and such a miracle...I'm such a sap...haha!


Thanks for taking the time to say something back! :) One sided conversations are never any fun! :) Thanks for reading!
