Momhood.

According to dictionary.com the word “motherhood” is defined in three parts.

1. “The state of being a mother; maternity.”

2.”The qualities or spirit of a mother.”

3. “Mothers collectively.”

Now, some of you are probably thinking, “wth” why did she google & define motherhood… Everyone has their own definition of this beautiful word, it means something different for each of us. For me, there is an immense amount of emotion behind this word.

For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a mother.

Upon graduating high school, in conversation with my friends, I mentioned I would become a mother in my early twenties. At the time I didn’t put too much thought into  this statement. We were just making conversation reminiscing on what could be.

Friends came & went, I met an amazing man when I was 18 years old, who would become the father of my boys and my husband. Fast forward a few years and I was graced with motherhood at 20 years old.

I’ll rewind a bit, but before Caybren we suffered 2 miscarriages… (ill save those stories for another post)

In those times I was in such a hurry to become a mom, I’m not fully sure why because this shit is as much rewarding as it is challenging. lol. Anyway miscarriage is hard emotionally and physically, but once I was able to get past the pain, and make peace with God’s timing is when I had a successful pregnancy.

Thus Caybren Jax Adams was born and I was born into this amazing community called “Motherhood.”

Life with kids is not all cupcakes and unicorns. This shit is a struggle. I have to take deep breaths and count to 10. I lose my cool and get angry. We all make mistakes, NO ONE is a perfect parent. But every experience is a learning one and I am so grateful to be a mom. To have these perfect tiny humans looking up to my husband and I. We get to assist in molding these beautiful creatures in to kind, compassionate, loving, humble, respecting people, who will hopefully make a difference in the world one day.

Just remember you’re not alone, we all struggle with the challenges and joys of motherhood.

Whats your definition of motherhood and what does it mean to you?! Leave me some love(responses) below.

 

With love,

  1. Hi Emily!!! Love, love your perspective. I totally believe motherhood is a way for our souls to grow and expand….once you have these little people with their own minds and desires entrusted into your care, it’s like holy hell unpredictable world, here we come! But it’s so GOOD for us to experience chaos, various emotions, and new situations because we get to learn “life” right along with these precious kiddos. And the journey just evolves as they grow up (sadly the toddler years were the easiest in retrospect, lol).

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful family with everyone!!! Looking forward to reading your blog.

  2. This is a super blog Em, and I like your writing technique!
    To me, Motherhood means so many things, I’ll try to break it down. For me I felt so much love and joy as a Mom, still do. It’s all the experiences we shared together, trying to instill strength when a broken heart occurred but also hugging the shoulders that would one day have her own kids. It’s learning from your children as each year they grow in different ways, all positive ways in your eyes! Patience when a bad day does come along. I felt as though we had a friendship as well as being Mother daughter , I guess because I always wanted you and your sister to feel close to me so I’d be the one you call when in need. You both will always be close to my heart even when miles apart. Lastly, it’s remembering the times I didn’t do my best as a Mom and having the grace to ask God to forgive me.
    Now you’re experiencing Motherhood for yourself and I couldn’t be prouder of you. Caybren and Ander only get one shot at childhood and I know you and Cal are the perfect parents for them and what an adventure it will be, they are the most adorable little guys!
