The Day He said Mamma....
February 5, 2015: the day my life changed. Forever! That's the day he was born, my precious son. The day I became a mom. Congratulations and blessings complete, my son was handed to me and everything went fast forward from then. If only I knew how chaotic my world had just become.
As funny as it all sounds, it was extremely difficult at times with all the sleepless nights, thoughts of whether I was doing the right thing and the choices that had to be made (breastfeed or not, sleep train or not, go back to work or not...) for the tiny new life that depended on me so much. Everything vanished the moment my son said Mamma. This was all the encouragement I needed to go forward. I could fight a hundred battles and get through the toughest phases with the echo of his voice saying Mamma.
It's been a while now since that day and now it's more or less like a record player, stuck, playing my favorite tune...... the one that goes mamma, mamma, maaammaaaa, mamma, maaa, maa. I love it! I could listen to it forever.
