Before I was a mom

I’m linking up with Mama Kat’s Famous Writing Workshop! This prompt inspired by me is number 5 on this weeks workshop prompts.

Every week you’re invited to join Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop by responding to one of the provided prompts posted each Tuesday. To view more detailed instructions on how this weekly meme works, check out the Writer’s Workshop FAQs.

I had my first child VERY young, I was only sixteen years old when I became a mother. While my beautiful first-born son was a blessing in my life his birth also meant there was no going back, I was an adult. I was responsible for another persons life other than just my own. It was scary! I miss living without fear,  I have alot of fears.Being a mom can be pretty scary at times.

Before I was a mom, I had no real responsibilities. I miss the peace of mind that accompanied the minimal responsibility.

Before I was a mom had the freedom of doing what I wanted when I wanted too. I didn’t have to worry about anything or anyone else, I miss the freedom.

Before I was a mom I used to dance alot. Music was my passion before my children came into my life; while I still enjoy music I do miss the fun and freedom from dancing with a partner and entering contests.

Before I was a mom I was familiar with sleep, today I barely remember what that is like. It’s not so much that I miss it but it would be nice to actually have some.

Before I was a mom I loved to dream about what my life would be like when I grew up. I miss the daydreams that have been replaced with strict schedules and worries. Now my brain just does not shut down it runs on overload.

But through it all I would not change my life, being a mom has been my greatest accomplishment. Through the craziness I somehow find my moments of peace and clarity that get me through each day. Before I was a mom I had not get grown into the woman I was meant to be.
