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” and “Meet Moms.” My connection with my Mom grew after I had Jackson and I also discovered a new appreciation of my Mother-in-Law’s love of my husband. Meeting other new Moms was the most important thing I did after Jackson. Other new Moms make you feel normal and realize that it’s all going to be ok. You might even gain some lifelong friends out of it like I did :).
Becoming a Mother for the first time makes your heart grow in ways you didn’t know were possible. Check out this sweet video for other sweet notes from Moms just like you & me:
