Before I became a mom, I though baby drool, spit-up, and other bodily fluids were...pretty darn gross. I knew I would become a mom one day, but I couldn't really imagine actually DEALING with all of those things.
Yet here I am. Wearing my daughter's lunch like a badge of honor.
I always knew I wanted to be a mother one day, but I never really knew why. Maybe it was societal pressures, maybe it was biology. Whatever it was, it was there, even before I ever developed an interest in children.
And now I've made it.
And I finally know why.
I won't bother enumerating the wonderful things about having a baby of my own. You can't quantify love. I just wanted to share this feeling with you all.
My daughter's bodily fluids are actually still pretty gross.
And sometimes don't wash out.
But I wear them with pride.
I am a mother.
And that makes me mother enough. :)
