Becoming A Mother

Superior Essays
A lot can happen within sixty seconds which allows the possibility of life changing events that can impact our routines, values, beliefs and maybe the outlook on life itself. Some of which can have one feeling the need of self-reevaluation or soul searching. I sat at my desk while at work. Then, I received a short and rushed phone call from my sister. She had gone to a doctor’s appointment that morning for a routine pregnancy checkup. Unfortunately, her blood pressure was higher than normal, and was admitted to the hospital. I hoped that everything would be okay so, I quickly made my way to the emergency room entrance. My family and I sat patiently in the hospital waiting room. Everyone was excited, and anxious to hear the words that he …show more content…
Nevertheless they can be taught with love, guidance, nurture, and patience. I valued the passion of helping kids when permitted to do so. I always knew that I wanted to have a child in the future. I wanted to get the chance to experience other things before becoming a mother. However, it never really dawned on me until my nephew was born how important being a mother was to me. My nephew taught me to what it takes to be responsible for someone else that is dependent on me. I now know how to handle the obstacles, and many challenges when it comes to becoming a mother myself. He also taught me how much time, and effort is required to raise a child. I remember how he would fall sound asleep on my chest sometimes late at night. It was the most precious thing I could have ever …show more content…
Now that he has gotten older he is less dependent on my sister and I. He always says” No I can do it myself or no I don’t need any help.” Surprisingly, he often tries to tell us what to do in certain situations. Kids have a mind of their own, and can say the craziest things at the moment you least expect it. He is very smart for his age, and always makes me smile whenever I see him. He always asks questions, and even though sometimes I may not have an answer for him I try to come up with the best response possible. I can now say I have acquired a totally new perspective for mother hood, and love being an aunt. I have enjoyed teaching him the little things such as counting numbers or even the letters in the alphabet. One day I’ll be able to tell him “You changed my life the day you were born.” No matter where I am in my life I will always take the time to let him know how much I care for

I want to feel as ready as possible to be a parent before jumping in, because there are so many styles and decisions involved in being a mother, and I want to know what I am doing. Through counseling and education, I realized how fulfilling being a parent might be, and how all of this knowledge and love could raise a very happy human. I have many reasons why I want to be a parent, as I hope most people who have children (whether intentionally or unintentionally) eventually realize. One of these reasons is that I love kids.…

    At work I speak with coworkers about what would make their job easier or safer, and then I engineer a solution. Beyond that though, they tell me about personal issues, about their health problems and their family 's health problems.
