I'm a mom, that's weird...

Every once in a while the thought will just randomly spring into my head reminding me that I am, in fact, a mother. Still almost six months later that's very strange to me. I'm sure this is quite normal after living 27 years not being a mother but still occasionally the thought creeps in and gives me a good chuckle. I went into her room last night, like I do every night before I go to bed, and make sure she's covered, breathing and not suffocating herself with anything in her crib. Last night when I did that is when the motherhood thing struck me again. I think because Emery came to us in a blaze of glory (which completely matches her personality) but it's sometimes still so surreal to me. I like it. The fleeting thoughts of "Holy Crap I'm a Mom" really keep me on my toes, and allow me to soak in all the thankfulness of this wild ride.

  1. I definitely still have those thoughts 5 years later! It was really weird when Jon learned to read--I keep thinking, "I can't have a kid that knows how to read?!?!" I'm not sure why, that just seems like someone who's really a mom and sometimes I still feel like a girl who gets to have these kids not a real mom. Not sure if that makes any sense, but...all that to say, I totally get that "Holy Crap I'm a Mom!" feeling! :)
