The decision to become a parent was an easy one for me. I always knew — since I was 5-years old — that I would one day want to become a mom. It’s the ultimate in experiences to help shape and raise a person in the world and it’s rewarding and hard work.
There are a lot of sacrifices that come along with being a parent as well. You don’t get to sleep as much as you may like. You don’t only have yourself to think of when it comes to making big decisions and sometimes that means making choices you may not want to or having to do something that you never thought you would do.
Then, there are times where you realize that with this gig you still have some say. I don’t love all aspects of parenting, but most of it I pull through like many other parents for the sake of the greater good of our kids. I would like to say I would do anything for my kids, but I’m realizing that may not be true. There are times where I have to put my foot down and realize that even I have some things I won’t do — even for my kids.
