What does Parenthood mean to you? Are you the parent you always thought you would be or have things surprised you?
Parenthood means being humble enough to know that I will be learning every minute, being confident enough to know that I can handle any situation this throws at me. It means learning to live every moment completely. It means being honest with myself. I have this little person looking up to me and will possibly question my decisions someday in the future. I can answer him, guide him and trust him only if I trust myself and am true to myself. It means having a thousand conflicting emotions crashing like waves through the crevices of my heart and washing across the fissures of my brain. Yet, through these emotions, I will learn to put my sons cry when he bumps his head or his disappointment and his happiness ahead of mine every time.
I am in some ways who I imagined myself to be as a parent, and yet there are moments when I surprise myself, not many, but then I expect them to grow as my little implet grows too.
