Being a Mama means waking up when your baby wakes up (usually at the break of dawn) or sometimes at 5am and rocking your little one back to sleep in your arms.
Being a Mama means baby giggles are the best sound ever.
Being a Mama means trying any means to ensure your baby doesn’t act out in public (singing silly songs, dancing, having snacks prepared).
Being a Mama means being able to teach someone anything and everything.
Being a Mama means getting every piece of clothing drooled on or a dirty face wiped in.
Being a Mama means having a deeper love for a human being that you’d ever imagine.
Being a Mama means trying to protect your child against all the dangers and worries in the world.
Being a Mama means having the most important responsibility in the world.
