{link-up} MAY IS FOR MOMS

1. Before you ever even had children, how did you feel about being a mother?
 I was so in love with the thought! I've always known that my major calling in life was to be a mom! The name just fits me. I used to day dream about it ever since I was a little girl and even had over 20 baby dolls and each one had a name.. And no! -- I never favored them.. Okay maybe I did, haha!

I always knew that being a momma was my calling and when I found out I was pregnant I was so excited but a little terrified because reality officially hit that my life was no longer my own but it belonged to the little life growing inside of me. I thank God everyday for this gift of Motherhood! 

2. Since becoming a mother, what is something that has happened that you never thought would?
I never thought I would need "Mommy breaks" as much as I do! Before I had Evelynne I did research, read books. I thought I would be all put together and have this  Mommy thing down as soon as I could walk again. And I thought I could be one of those super moms that could have it all together 24/7.. I've learned in these last 5 Months that no mom has everything put together. That's why we need the help of our Sweet Jesus to guide us. And even Super Momma's need breaks. That's how they become super! Even Batman takes breaks hehe!

3. Is being a mother less difficult, more difficult or exactly how difficult you imagined?
Honestly, I think it really depends on the days and my mood.. When there's a lack of sleep in the midst everything is more difficult. But when a good night sleep happens (which is rare these days) Everything seems to run more smoothly! :)

4. What is your fondest memory of being a mother (so far)?
Oh my gosh! I love everything about being a mom! Especially making our sweet girl laugh and giggle. It brings such joy to my spirit. My husband and I will stand on our heads just to see her giggle!

5. If your children only learn one life lesson from you, what do you hope it is?
To know their identity in Christ. I believe that is really the most important thing someone could know or learn. That we are nothing without Jesus but with Him we are Everything. That there is nothing we can do without Him but with Him we can do All things. And that we were once sinners but Jesus loves us so much that He died for us to make us of Royalty once again. I think this is the most important thing we can know! And I pray my daughter and future kiddo's gets this! It's a powerful thing when one knows their true identity and not the identity that the world has tried to give them!
