We got a really special submission from Lacey. Deciding to become a mother is a very life changing path. One you never can quit once you have started.
Being a mom has changed my life in so many ways. It’s easy for people to tell you exactly how or what is going to happen but it is so different for each and every person. I knew that I wanted to wait before having kids because it would be a sacrifice, changing everything I knew for this little person. I would no longer think of myself first.
Knowing once I started the journey there would be no going back. My daughter is now 2 years old and we are expecting our second child. We got to experience so much before, but I have to say that this journey so far has been the best one yet. I love seeing the world the way that she sees it for the first time with such innocence and excitement.
Every day we experience something new and challenging, see something completely new. We are currently battling a very difficult pregnancy as well as a toddler who doesn’t understand why mom doesn’t have the energy to play or isn’t allowed to pick her up and run around with her. Teaching our child understanding, compassion and morals has been the most rewarding aspect of being a mom and I can’t wait to continue to teach these lessons and do the same for our second child.
