Six month ago, I brought a little life into our world and our lives have never been the same again. When friends ask me how it feels to be a mother, I am always immediately at loss on how to answer them. Where do I even begin to express how I feel? So many different emotions swell up inside of me. And this is what motherhood does to you. You feel emotions that you didn't even know existed. Every emotion is enhanced beyond ever imaginable.
Life was great before Oliver came along but ever since I have been blessed with his presence, life now has purpose. For the first time in my life, I feel as if I am actually 'living' a life and not 'existing' through life.
I was recently sent this beautiful keepsake book (appropriately titled; Mum's Story) from kikki.K. It is a book with pages which prompts you to write down memories and spaces for photos.
I have only been able to fill in a few pages so far but I will continue to note down the memories we make as time passes by. This book will be cherished for years to come.
I also participated in a short interview with kikki.K about my feeling towards being a mother which can be found on their blog.
