This Video Is What Being A Mother Is All About
I'm not gonna lie, I couldn't make it through this entire video without turning into a blubbering fool, but it is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
As a mother that is literally just days or hours away from the arrival of her second baby girl, I am struggling. Yes, there's the physical struggles of being super pregnant that every mom goes through, but my struggle is more emotional right now.
Don't get me wrong, I am super excited to meet her and finally see my daughter's sweet little face, but I just can't let go of this one nagging bit of sadness; soon it won't be just be the three of us anymore, and Ella will no longer be "my baby girl."
I know feeling this way is silly, and that so much joy is ahead of us, but I just can't help feeling nostalgic. Mommy and Ella time is my favorite part of any day, and I don't want Ella to feel one bit of sadness over the arrival of her baby sister.
Am I nuts, or this a typical fear of every Mom about to welcome their second child?
I guess I just wish life really could "slow down" for a moment.. (Here's the part where you REALLY need the tissues.)
To every Mom I say, Happy Mother's Day, and I'm sorry for making you cry while watching that.
