How many children do you have, Mom? Or perhaps the better question is, how many little ones would you like to have?
After having my twins, prematurely at that, my husband and I immediately said that we were done. My body was exhausted, so were my emotions, not to mention the piles of laundry, the bags under my eyes and the countless days of going without a refreshing shower.
But about three years later, the “baby” talk started. With little reluctance, we both agreed that we missed those baby days…A LOT. And so motherhood washed over me again, and oh how blessed we were!
Motherhood shapes us in the most amazing way. Despite the sleepless nights, potty training nightmares, and terrible twos, I wouldn’t trade a moment of it. I can officially say we are done having children, but the memories of my children as young little ones, will forever hold my heart.
Relish the little moments, Mom. However many children drift into your waiting arms…just savor the sweetness of it.
