What moms do for love

I was reading this entry from Mom exchange so I replied to it, not realizing, I have so much to ay that it turned out to be long enough to be a full blown blog entry. So I decided to write it here instead..

This is my reply: ( to read the article, just click on the link mom exchange above)
cute... there are a lot of things that we have to conquer/ sacrifice for the sake of our kids...

these are what i eexperienced:
1. washing her butt (who out there actually washed somebody elses poop before they became mothers? )
2. my figure, actually in didnt gain weight when I was preggy, i gained weight a year after, simply because i forgot to love myself, my love are all poured to my baby after i gave birth..
3. my friends, although I can see them if I want to, but a night out with friends is a night that I have to come home without seeing my baby awake, and greeting me.. mommy miss you! I'm pretty sure she'll be asleep when i come home after a girls night out.
4. simple pleasures, like starbucks or a new shoes, most often than not, i give in to a new toy or a new puzzle for my baby instead of buying myself some much needed new stuff
5. work sometimes. Im a very career oriented, goal oriented person before I became a mom. I have so much dreams that I work so hard for it. even if I have to work till tomorrow morning just to finish a submittal. But not anymore, when I render overtime, which is not as often as before, I feel guilty for not spending those precious times with my daughter.
6. time, isint it that all moms, wants to give their time to their kids, we would give every minute, every second if we have to.. even if it means forgetting everything else..
7. my dreams, this maybe going overboard, but at some extent its true. I still have my dreams, I still have some goals that I want to accomplish, but its either bent to accomodate my daughters life into it, or postponed or sometimes cancelled.

This are a lot of sacrifices, that comes to being a mom. Although, its really, really hard. Its still fulfilling..
