That Perfect Mother
Being a first time mom is very scary, but it makes life worth living. I’ve never had any experience, I’m young, and I have not successfully accomplished my career goals is what makes it horrifying. I still remember when I found out that I was pregnant, every ultrasound appointment, and the day my beautiful daughter came into this world. It amazes me how you can love someone pass infinity. Every day I strive to be a better mother than I was the day before. Every child deserves a great mother in their life and that is exactly what I’m trying to be for my daughter.
I can still recall the day I found out I was pregnant. It was a beautiful fall day. The leaves on the trees were changing colors and descending. It is actually

I was embarrassed to tell them that I had ruined my life. Throughout my high school years my parents talked to me about safe sex and avoiding becoming a teen mom. They told me that the only way I was going to accomplish my career goals was to never get pregnant. I told my boyfriend and he was ecstatic. I knew he would be because he was older and more established than I was at the time. He promised to stay by my side and he has. Finally, when I was ten weeks pregnant I started telling my friends and family. My mom was very supportive. My dad was devastated and actually stopped communicating with me. It hurt me to know I disappointed my …show more content…
Having a career, being a great role model, having a house my child can grow up in, giving her the best of everything, making sure she doesn’t need or want for anything, and raising her the correct way defined a perfect mother to me. I want everyone around me to see and say that I am a perfect example of a great mother. The more I reflect on my understanding of being the perfect mother; I noticed that it does not exist. I stressed myself my entire pregnancy about it when it never existed. I now understand that the only way I can be a spectacular mother is to do my very best, never give up, and stop worrying what other’s perception of a great mother is. I realized that every parent, child, and situation is different. One thing might work for you but it may not for the next persons. Overall this journey that I am on is magnificent. At times I am hard on myself but I just want to be the mother my child

No one really thanked for what she had done for him or her. They just thought it was a natural and common thing for mom to do it for a family.…

    One of them being, how some of us are more fortunate than others to have the support and encouragement we need from the most important people in our life.
