Something Absolutely New

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.”

I read this quote today and realized just how true it was. I knew my life would change when I had children but I don't think I realized how much I would change. Things that were important before just don't matter and things that I didn't think mattered that much are the most important things! I absolutely LOVE being a mother and can't believe how blessed I am with two amazing children. I love the "new" me that was born on May 1, 2007 and again on April 27, 2010.

I agree.

Where did you read that quote? I like it.

Right now I must be a "teenage" mom since my oldest is a teenager! That's a bit scary! LOL.

Received your birth announement. Thanks for sending it across the pond. I love getting my own mail in this mailbos instead of my landlord's mail all the time.
