Reflections of Motherhood

Someone recently shared this YouTube video and it really touched me, so I wanted to share it with you all in case you haven’t seen it yet. It’s a compilation of real Moms and what they would tell themselves before they became a Mom for the first time. My favorites are “You’ll miss your Mom”…

I didn’t feel like taking pictures while heavier than usual & bloated, but I’m so glad I documented…
